    I'm in Tech, Product Management. Most consumer facing apps or websites. Last one was with trip.com until their new boss fired everyone who isn't Mandarin speaking (as his highness doesn't speak English)

    Not sure how this will help the shortage of students and the closure of many of the Band 2/3 (and some Band 1) schools?
    Yes, that's very true.

    But that child probably can't understand English, or at least not well enough to apply to SPCC, DGS, DBS, HKIS, GSIS, etc.

    So Band 2/3 schools maybe a option for them.

    China's birth are as follows:

    Annual births fell from 18.83 million in 2016 to 17.65 million, 15.23 million, 14.65 million, 12.02 million in 2020, 10.62 million (2021), and 9.56 million (2022)

    (China's birth limit was removed in July 2021 and shortly after implemented financial incentives to encourage individuals to have additional children)

    Hong Kong needs about 30,000 to 40,000 of primary school children per year. I think this is doable.

    It would be a lot more honest if they stopped pretending.
    If you work in tech then there are still plenty of opportunities that do not require Chinese.

    I think they should adjust the eligibility criteria for Category A.

    - If the applicant has a child under 12, the income requirement is lowered to HK$2.25 million instead of $2.5 million
    - If the applicant has two children under 12, the income requirement is lowered to HK$2 million instead of $2.5 million
    - If the applicant has three children under 12, the income requirement is lowered to HK$1.75 million instead of $2.5 million

    As for Category B and C's applicants,

    - if the applicant has child under 12, eligible universities can be Top 150 rather than 100.
    - if the applicant has two children under 12, eligible universities can be Top 200 rather than 100.
    - if the applicant has three children under 12, eligible universities can be Top 250 rather than 100.

    What do you think?

    Didn't 50,000 enter via the non-talent rated "one-way permit." last year?
