Health Insurance consultation & discussion with Sophia Chan, Under Sec. of Food and Health & Kwok Ka-ki, and Youth in Hong Kong post Umbrella Movement (19 Dec 2014)


This week the government rolled out two major policies. On Tuesday, it announced a proposal to an build an additional 10,000 housing units to create 480,000 new homes in the next 10-years. The day before, it launched a three-month consultation on health insurance and on measures to monitor private hospitals. With increased air pollution, Mong Kok minibuses triple parking, and traffic snarl ups back to normal, except for a few tents around the government offices the Umbrella Movement’s occupation of the streets is at an end. But is there any real chance of a dialogue between our administration and the younger generation, or will it just remain as the Cantonese say “chicken and duck” talk, where the government feels its only duty is to “re-enlighten” the young?
