Symposium on Poverty Alleviation Strategies in Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau: Challenges and Way-forward
兩岸四地扶貧研討會:挑戰與前瞻

By | Events, Project Update, Seminar | No Comments

It is estimated that 1.35 million people, that is one-fifth of the population in Hong Kong are living below the poverty line (Hong Kong Poverty Situation Report 2016). While the Hong Kong government has spent considerable resources to reduce the number of households living in poverty, the widening poverty gap and increases in the number of older-adult and single-parent households has resulted in a group of households trapped in poverty. To address these challenges, The Symposium on Poverty Alleviation Strategies in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau aims at bringing together local, and regional scholars to examine the poverty situation in the cross-strait region and to identify effective poverty alleviation measures and strategies.

Date: 6th July 2018 (Friday)
Time: 15:30 to 17:45
Venue: Social Sciences Chamber, 11/F, The Jockey Club Tower, Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong (Map)

Poverty Alleviation Strategy for Elderly Population in Macau

Abstract

Compared with Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Macau is a micro and open economy, so it is more difficult for Macau SAR Government to deliver poverty alleviation strategy.  Despite revenue contraction in the 26 consecutive months from 2014 – 2016, Macau SAR Government still pay attention to build up a sustainable public retirement benefit system, like the sustainability of Social Security Fund (Public Pension System of Macau, the 1st pillar pension system) and the introduction of voluntary saving pension system (the 2nd pillar pension system). The paper is to review the historical development of Social Security Fund and the present public retirement benefit system.  Nowadays, the meaning of poverty alleviation is not just sustainable living, but also development, social inclusion and precision.  In order to deliver “New” poverty alleviation strategy for elderly population, Macau SAR Government studies or implements various measures, like elderly employment, smart healthcare (i.e. electronic healthcare voucher scheme) and pension finance (i.e. reverse mortgage and annuity).  The paper is to use the results of two telephone surveys to explore the feasibility of delay retirement and pension finance, as well as, the development of smart healthcare in Macau.

中國精準扶貧方略實施成效及未來發展趨勢

概要

中國改革開放40年來的扶貧脫貧成就舉世矚目,尤其是2013年以來,按照國家2020年全面建成小康社會戰略目標,確定的「在現行標準下農村貧困人口脫貧,貧困縣全部摘帽,基本解決區域性整體貧困問題」而實施的精準扶貧基本方略,是新時代中國扶貧脫貧實踐的又一次創新性探索。探究和分析中國精準扶貧精準脫貧的演進發展歷程、頂層設計,客觀全面地評價取得成效和面臨的新問題、重點和難點,展望中國未來減貧與發展走向。

貧窮在臺灣:新世紀的概況

概要

主要描述2000-2015年臺灣的貧窮現象,包括以OECD國家慣常使用的貧窮率來描述臺灣各類家戶以及人口群的貧窮趨勢。其次,介紹臺灣的社會救助法以及法定低收入戶的狀況。最後,介紹在全球金融危機(2008-2010)時期,臺灣所推出的方案,協助民眾減少落入貧窮的機會。

陳建新博士
澳門大學政府與行政學系

澳門老年人口之扶貧策略

概要

相對中國內地、香港和臺灣,澳門特別行政區政府要在微觀開放經濟下的澳門實施扶貧策略比較困難。即使由2014至2016年,面臨持續26個月的收入收縮,澳門政府仍然投放精神建立一個可持續性的公共退休福利制度,例如社會保障基金的可持續性(澳門的公共退休金制度,退休金制度的第一支柱)以及自願性供款的退休金制度(退休金制度第二支柱)。講者將回顧社會保障基金的歷史發展及現在的公共退休福利制度。現今,扶貧的意義不只是可持續性的生活,亦講究發展、社區共融和精準。為了向長者人口提供「新」扶貧措施,澳門政府實行不同措施例如長者就業,智慧醫療(電子醫療卷計畫)及退休金財務(安老按揭和年金)。透過兩項電話調查的結果探討延遲退休及退休金財務的可行性,包括智慧醫療在澳門的發展。

陳建新博士是澳門大學公共行政管理碩士課程主任、政府與行政學系助理教授及澳門社會保障學會理事長。陳博士也是香港大學香港賽馬會防止自殺研究中心及香港大學秀圃老年研究中心榮譽研究員。
