Details : It has been just over 60 years since the outbreak of the tragic fire in Shek Kip Mei Squatter Area in 1953 which had made 53,000 squatters homeless overnight, and triggered the development of a massive public housing programme in Hong Kong. Throughout these 60 years, the government has made tremendous efforts and devoted enormous public resources in providing various forms of subsidized housing to meet the needs of the low and middle income families. The achievement of Hong Kong’s public housing programme has been acknowledged internationally. In this seminar, the Speaker will review the effectiveness of the models adopted by the government, and highlight the new housing issues arising from an ageing population and the trend towards smaller households. He would also like to exchange views with the audience on possible new initiatives to enhance Hong Kong's quality of housing.
