Policy Address Social Enterprises
67. The development of social enterprises helps create job opportunities for the grassroots in local communities. We will continue to enhance the public's understanding of social enterprises. The Home Affairs Department launched the Social Enterprises Partnership Programme early this year to encourage tri-partite collaboration among the Government, the business sector and the community. To date, more than ten social enterprise projects have been successfully implemented through cross-sectoral collaboration. We will continue to provide seed money under the Enhancing Self-Reliance Through Partnership Programme to support the start-up of new social enterprises.
