    At the end of 1995 Hong Kong had a resourceful and energetic labour force of 3,120,500, as estimated from the findings of the October to December 1995 General Household Survey.

A profile of the sectoral distribution of the workforce participation, unemployment, underemployment, and vacancies by industry. In addition, the impact of the policy to import labour on the labour force and employment and the manpower projections for 2001 will also be discussed in this chapter. Some advice to the Special Administrative Region (SAR) government on labour and human resource policies is also offered.
