Employers have warned that Hong Kong's remaining high-value-added production will be lost to the mainland if a scheme to import labour from across the border is rejected. Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen, vice-chairman of the Federation of Industries and an employers' representative at the Labour Advisory Board, said jobs would be lost in Hong Kong as more businesses would migrate to the mainland if nothing was done.
