Cultivating a Multicultural Society and Combating Racial Discrimination in Hong Kong

1 August 2001

This paper explores the problem of racial discrimination, its damaging effects, the positive aspects of promoting equal opportunities and the possible policy solutions that could help the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government (HKSARG) achieve its aim for Hong Kong to become “Asia’s World City”. Such an aspiration must by definition include a multicultural and international outlook about how people of different ethnic and national backgrounds are to be treated.
