Social Security – News      2016/03/31

coverAs always, our Policy Bulletin attempts to adopt new angles and perspectives to look at policy issues in order to enrich policy discussions. 

Ensuring our older generation’s dignity and sense of security is a widely shared value and mission in any developed society. Yet, it is also a challenging ideal in practice. The public consultation on retirement protection launched by the government in December 2015 has reignited hot debate in the community. 

The 20th issue of the Policy Bulletin, entitled “Retirement Protection in Hong Kong – The Way Forward,” reviews decades of public discussion on retirement protection in Hong Kong, introduces and analyzes various pension proposals, and discusses the ‘Rights-based Discourse’ underlying in the universal pension plan. 

Also, this issue invites experts from different fields to evaluate the parameters and assumptions of various universal pension plans proposed by the government, including Prof. Nelson, Chow Wing-sang, and a group of scholars respectively. Two youth organizations, Youth Support Universal Pension and Youngspiration, are also invited to share their views on retirement protection. The articles in this issue provide a wide range of perspectives for the readers to think about the way forward for Hong Kong retirement protection.
