    I would imagine its other way around, school children could be replenished from over the border once dust settles but hard to replace CANTONESE SPEAKING teachers same as doctors..

    Plenty of Cantonese speaking teachers just over the border.

    Cross-border students typically have HK residency but live in Shenzhen because their parents work there or simply because it’s cheaper. They have been unable to attend school in HK since the start of the pandemic. Those who choose to remain enrolled have had to endure online classes. Obviously many have already decided to switch to mainland schools and are therefore counted as part of the student outflow. Total number was in the tens of thousands before the pandemic.

    In that case we can conclude everything is replaceable in HK, first copy from China, and lets stop calling across the border, we are now leaving in offshore Shenzhen so enhance QFII/RQFII schemes to include daily quota for human capital as well and problem solved..

    Given the current practicalities and policy statements, might not be as trivial to import teachers as it might be to reopen borders and let the kids back in?

    May be it is ... three dimension chess play at work. Wonder what the certifications would need to be adjusted.

    @qhank "tens of thousands" unless you have data to dispute it I will call you on this. Several thousand maybe. A couple of thousand, more likely.

    On another issue. The main problem is in the unis' where mainlanders are continuing to erode places for locals, with the protagonist excusing this with " any HK student may attend any mainland uni with no examination.". Because .that would be valuable to a HK student .... Not.

    This wiki page has not been updated... It does seem to indicate that we have at a min 10K students crossing the borders, or enrolled in HK from across the road..
