    • Abstract:
      The overall unemployment rate has remained high during the past 10 years. Youth unemployment especially is a very serious problem that requires the society to invest a huge amount of resources. This article applies the concepts of human capital, demand insufficiency, social capital, and life planning to summarise Hong Kong's strategies and experiences in handling and helping our young people to face and overcome the employment problems. It is hoped that the government, public organizations, private enterprise, and nongovernmental organizations can maintain close partnerships and provide life-planning education and skills training; create short-term posts; support self-employment and business start-ups; cultivate social enterprise expertise; and establish social networks to help young people solve the employment problems that they face.
