The Problem 

The ethnic minority or non-Chinese population is a part of the Hong Kong family. The population of ethnic minorities is one of the fastest growing populations in Hong Kong, particularly the youth population. With this population, Hong Kong is stronger in a global and connected to the world.

This population brings a diverse range of skills, talent, language, culture, and networks to Hong Kong. Many identify as Hong Kong people and some families have a long history in Hong Kong. As Asia’s World City, Hong Kong should be inclusive to this population and find ways of bringing them into the mainstream.

They are also amongst the poorest in Hong Kong and opportunities exist to upskill and include the population for the benefit of them as well as for the Hong Kong community at large.
