The Honourable Bernard Chan Charnwut (right photo, right), Deputy to the National People’s Congress of China and Executive Councillor of Hong Kong, discussed sustainable development for Hong Kong’s politics and economy in a seminar jointly organised by School of Continuing and Professional Education (SCOPE) and Alumni Relations Office (ARO) of City University of Hong Kong (CityU) on 24 September.
They also discussed the future changes of Hong Kong’s political and business environment and ways to grasp the opportunities for sustainable development to build a better tomorrow for the local community.
Mr Chan said he believed that Hong Kong would face a shortage of professionally trained public administrators in the coming five to fifteen years, which will pose a great challenge to Hong Kong.
Many young professionals and business executives hesitate to join the public administration sector as they have to give up their own careers due to the lack of a “revolving door” policy in Hong Kong.
