    Zero income tax for specific groups seems unjustified. What about those already in the particular fields but are not on Visas or have been here long enough to be PR?

    I think controlling cost of living + returning HK back to the good old days would be enough to attract expats. Give expats liberty to travel and go nuts in LKF is enough to keep them happy.

    Fastest way to drum up interest is by word of mouth from ppl already working in HK..oops

    So far only first 2 suggestions sound remotely possible.

    Quarantine free travel with the mainland. Obviously this is dependent on the mainland, not much HK gov can do about it. Like it or not, mainland tourism made a significant contribution to HK's GDP. Without this tourism HK will continue to shrink.

    Unless China gives up Zero Covid, or HK readopts Zero Covid, there is zero chance of this happening.

    To revive 852, ban all Voice/Video over internet/data technologies and force foreigners to use IDD..

    The rest is just dog under bullock-cart, just open everything and stop pretending to be doing something, people will come.. Not doing anything will be great help and save billions as well..

    Replace everyone in the government - only take people who are competent and decisive and honest and intelligent.
    The last time they tried that they arrested and locked up everyone participating in the election.

    To be fair, if that's contextually possible they did not lock up the patriots.

    with what? when your best pick is someone that is a high school grad and comes with an online degree, the thought of the rest's capability is scary. I can't foresee how this downward spiral will rebound during my lifetime. The sad part is they still think they are highly capable. It doesn't matter which camp or side. the available pool is limited
