Call for Submissions - Hong Kong Economic Policy Challenge 2023  

  • 2023-03-01 ~ 2023-04-12
  • 12:00am - 12:00am

[updated on 7 March 2023]

The high housing price and cost of raising a child have contributed to a declining birth rate, and stringent Covid policy over the past three years and the lack of industrial diversity have caused a brain drain amongst ex-pats and tech talents in Singapore, Canada, and the mainland, which both result in a deficiency of high-caliber talents and thus threaten Hong Kong’s competence as a city.

This year, HKEPC 2023 will receive economic policy proposals from undergraduates across universities around the world on a pivotal issue for the future of Hong Kong: labor force crisis. Through this competition, we strive to empower students in addressing this increasingly relevant problem.
