Anti-epidemic Fund

The novel coronavirus epidemic has brought exceptional challenges to Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has responded to the needs of the public and the society in an unprecedented manner. Our objectives are: first, to help businesses stay afloat; second, to keep workers in employment; third, to relieve financial burdens of individuals and businesses; and fourth, to assist the economy to recover once the epidemic is contained.

The Government has launched four rounds of measures to assist the affected industries and the public, including:
  1. The first round of the $30 billion Anti-epidemic Fund approved by the Legislative Council on 21 February 2020
  2. The $120 billion relief package in the 2020-21 Budget announced by the Financial Secretary on 26 February 2020
  3. The second round of the $137.5 billion Anti-epidemic Fund measures approved by the Legislative Council on 18 April 2020
  4. The third round of $24 billion Anti-epidemic Fund and other measures announced on 15 September 2020
Besides, the Anti-epidemic Fund Steering Committee approved 16 new measures having regard to the development of the pandemic and the actual business situation of various industries.
