Expectation towards Social Innovation and the SIE Fund

"I expect the SIE Fund can encourage, drive and assist social enterprises and intermediaries to put forward and implement their innovative proposals which aim at poverty prevention and poverty alleviation, as well as benefitting the elderly and disadvantaged people. In addition, I hope the SIE Fund would share with the society its work results and achievements on a regular basis."
