Denise Yue, the Secretary for Civil Service (SCS) of the Hong Kong government, stated that in 2011 about 5,800 civil servants will receive training in Chinese national affairs, an increase from 2,700 in 2010.
Modules on national affairs will be added to the training for new civil servants. Additional spaces will be available for mid-level managers to study national affairs at Zhongshan University in Guangzhou and Shenzhen Graduate School of Beijing University in Shenzhen. These managers may also be sent to Mainland China for training purposes. The SCS of the China National School of Administration will establish a dedicated new program at that school to cover National Affairs, specifically for heads of departments.
