The Heads of Universities Committee said in a statement today they welcome the Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor's maiden policy address, adding that it reflected the government’s commitment to a comprehensive and holistic initiative to enhance the competitiveness of the city's education sector internationally.

"In particular, we very much support the government’s funding initiative for research and development, with a goal to double the total expenditure on R&D as a percentage of the Gross Domestic Product to about 1.5 percent in five years’ time,” the statement said.

"We also welcome the setting up of the Hostel Development Fund for the provision of additional hostel places, which will help solve the problem of shortage in hostel places and thus improve the learning experience of students in Hong Kong.”
