The Legco Delegation met with service users of the Fujian Scheme in Fuzhou

The Legislative Council (“LegCo”) delegation travelled to Fujian Province from 15 to 19 July for a study tour, and visited retired Hong Kong seniors in Fuzhou to gain a better understanding of the implementation of the Fujian Scheme. ISS-HK arranged 20 service users who benefit from the Scheme to meet with the Legco members on 16 July .

The President of LegCo, Hon Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen greeted the elders, followed by other Legco members including Stanley Ng Chau-pei and Tik Chi Yuen who invited elders to share about their living and retirement conditions in Fujian. The service users and Legco members then sat in groups to have in-depth discussions about their life in Fujian, and touched on topics like medical insurance and how the Hong Kong government can strengthen relevant policies to better benefit their livelihood in Fujian.

Since 2018, ISS-HK has been appointed by the Social Welfare Department as the agency to provide services for Hong Kong elders who intend to settle in to Fujian and apply for social security payments.
