Repairing society

The Social Affairs and Culture budget for the second half of this year will be increased to deal with Typhoon Hato damage

The Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture, Alexis Tam stated that the departmental budget would be increased for the second half of this year, in order to pay for repairs to damage created by Typhoon Hato.
The expanded budget would mostly be used to support the repair of affected schools and social premises; purchase new equipment; and restore cultural, sporting and cultural heritage facilities so they can resume operations.
The amount of the increase is currently still being analysed, the Secretary added.
This year’s proposed budget for the Office of the Secretary of Social Affairs and Culture was set at MOP132.2 million (US$16.4 million) in the Policy Address for the Fiscal Year 2017.
