Hong Kong’s financial secretary, the Honourable Paul MP Chan, delivered his 2021-2022 Budget speech to the Legislative Council. 

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to seriously impact Hong Kong’s economy, the Hong Kong SAR government recorded its largest budget deficit in 20 years.  Notwithstanding this deficit, Hong Kong’s strong fiscal reserves will ensure that the city’s public finances will remain healthy in the near term. In his speech, Mr Chan sets out a range of measures that will continue to support economic recovery, safeguard jobs and help impacted businesses and individuals while ensuring the long-term stability of government resources.
