Massive jobs crunch looms

According to the latest government projection, Hong Kong will have an oversupply of brains like diploma, associate degree and research graduates and a shortage of 117,900 workers by 2022. This prediction is mainly based on the change of population which includes the aging popularion,the low birth rate and a 4% of real GDP trend growth.


- can easily employ suitable professionals- more products are being produced- lower average wage as there is a surplus of workers- more competition between films as there are a lot of skilled worker

- tense competition of diploma courses- difficult to recruit students to study certain subjects e.g. manufacturing- more professionals of certain aspects e.g.associate degree is recruited to follow the trend--> higher cost

- lack of workers- many projects get delayed- need relatively large portion of capital for promotion, recruitment & wages --> increase financial burden

- imbalance of resources allocation to different sectors (e.g. trade & engineering)- face economy downturn as business cannot run smoothly due to inadequate workers of some sectors- projects are delayed, causing slow improvement of environment
