Education sector legislator Ip Kin-yuen said on Monday that that he supports a plan by the incoming Chief Executive to support students from self-financing tertiary education.

He said this will ease the financial burden of the students and would be supported by their families.

The CE-elect, Carrie Lam, as a part of her election platform has promised to provide an extra HK$5 billion for schools. Lam said that she would increase the recurrent education expenditure when she takes charge.

Ip welcomed this initiative, saying the funding can fulfill the needs of teachers and students.

 

He said that the education sector has been discussing various measures with Lam over the past few months.
