IN early October, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor (香港行政長官林鄭月娥) delivered her Policy Address (施政報告), listing many new plans. One of them is expanding the Museum of History (歷史博物館) and the Science Museum (科學館) and also to continue renewing the permanent exhibitions in those two. The government has set aside HK$20.5 billion to build new cultural facilities in museums and to improve existing ones.
The government said it will also use new technology to improve the quality of public libraries, promote reading and turn Hong Kong into a smart city. The government also plans to work with the education sector, community groups and district councils to promote city-wide reading.
