HKSI’s Response to The 2018-19 Budget
The HKSAR Government has further enhanced its commitment to the development of sports in its latest Budget by the injection of an extra HK$5 billion into the Elite Athletes Development Fund.
Dr Lam Tai-fai SBS JP, Chairman of the Hong Kong Sports Institute (HKSI) said, “We sincerely thank the Government for confirming the efforts of elite athletes in the past years, and welcome all the sports initiatives in the Budget. The HKSI is committed to working with the Government and sports stakeholders to take elite sports development in Hong Kong to the next level.”
The athletes’ recent high-flying results would not be possible without the current consistent Government support and partnership with the National Sports Associations and the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China as well as the dedicated efforts of the elite athletes and their supporting teams. The HKSI, as the delivery agent of the Government in elite athletes training, will continue to work with our stakeholders to provide an environment in which elite athletes can be identified, nurtured, and developed to pursue excellence in the international sporting arena.”
