Hong Kong Financial Secretary Paul Chan: “In light of the efforts of our country and the rest of the world in promoting green and low-carbon transformation, there is accelerating demand for green finance. We are committed to developing Hong Kong into a regional hub for green and sustainable finance, and nurturing talent is a crucial task in supporting such development. I announced in the 2022-23 Budget that the Government would launch the Pilot Scheme and earmark $200 million to provide subsidies to eligible persons participating in the training, with a view to building up the local green and sustainable finance talent pool and thereby supporting the development of green and sustainable finance in Hong Kong.”
