The Community Investment and Inclusion Fund (CIIF) Forum 2014 Successfully Concluded



The CIIF Forum 2014 cum Social Capital Builder (SCB) Award Presentation Ceremony was successfully held on Tuesday, 9 December 2014 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The CIIF Forum 2014 was jointly organised by the Labour and Welfare Bureau and CIIF Committee, with the Social Welfare Advisory Committee, Elderly Commission, Rehabilitation Advisory Committee, Women's Commission and The Hong Kong Council of Social Service as co-organisers. We were also pleased to have the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce, Chinese Manufacturers’ Association of Hong Kong, Federation of Hong Kong Industries, Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce, and Hong Kong General Chamber of Small and Medium Business as our supporting organisations.

Featuring the theme of “Social Capital: Together We Build a Caring Hong Kong”, the biennial event celebrated the community’s achievements in building social capital and introduced the concept of social capital to new partners, especially those from the business sector.

Kicked off by the Secretary for Labour and Welfare, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, GBS, JP, the whole-day event comprised a plenary session, a luncheon talk, two roundtable discussions and six concurrent sessions, covering a wide range of topics by distinguished speakers from different sectors. Their insightful speeches stimulated audience from various sectors of the community to give thoughts to the development of social capital in Hong Kong. An exhibition on CIIF-funded projects where participants could better understand how the projects have brought about positive changes to the community was also held.

Officiated by Mrs Carrie Lam, GBS, JP, Chief Secretary for Administration, the SCB Award Presentation Ceremony was held as a finale of the Forum in recognition of outstanding CIIF projects and partners. Four enterprises and two individuals were presented with the Outstanding Social Capital Partnership Award, three projects were awarded the Outstanding Project Award and 151 enterprises were granted the Social Capital Builder Logo to recognise their status as pioneers in building social capital.

The CIIF would like to extend its heartfelt thanks to all participants, co-organisers, supporting organisations, speakers, moderators, project teams, performance teams and volunteers for their active participation and sterling support to the event. Together we can contribute to a caring community!
