Following the announcement in the 2016 Policy Address and funding approval from the Legislative Council in July 2016, the HK$200 million Professional Services Advancement Support Scheme (“PASS”) is set up to support Hong Kong’s professional services sector to carry out worthwhile projects to spearhead pro-active outreaching promotion efforts and to improve service offerings.
As announced in the 2020 Policy Address, a funding of $50 million will be set aside under PASS to subsidise major professional bodies to participate in relevant exchanges, promotion and professional standard enhancement activities organised by the Government, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and overseas Economic and Trade Offices.
This website provides highlights of PASS. Applicants and grantees of PASS are invited to refer to the Guide to Application for Professional Services Advancement Support Scheme.
Applications are normally invited four times a year. The deadline for the current round of application is 28 February 2021.
