Abstract

In the recent decades, many Asian countries and cities are experiencing a decline in fertility rate, increase in female market participation, together with issues related to the lack of care which used to be taken care by mothers and females in the society. The present presentation sets out against the wider context of rapid demographic changes and mobility of population to critically examine how new immigrants especially coming from China mainland integrate to the Hong Kong society. Being one of the global cities, Hong Kong has made different attempts to attract and retain talents all around the world. However, the Hong Kong society has confronted with challenges in managing new immigrants for promoting better social integration. This paper reflects upon major challenges and policy implications for how to integrate new immigrants and support them to become new forces of human capital and engine for changes for future
development of Hong Kong.
