A budget increase for several public departments under the Secretariat for Social Affairs and Culture is likely in the coming year, according to statements by Secretary Alexis Tam Chon Weng to the press on the sidelines of an event yesterday.
The Secretary divulged that departments relating to health and social benefits would be the focus of the additional monetary resources, which would include areas such as medical infrastructure and special education, as well as historical conservation education.
Tam also explained that the better economic performance this year is the driver of the budget increase, given that the budget was unchanged during the less favourable economic environment last year.
The Secretary reiterated that the measure is still in its preliminary stage, noting that final decisions will be announced during the policy address next month.
