Dr EDEN WOON Director of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce: 'These are concrete measures to provide more jobs. But we shouldn't raise expectations that unemployment will go down. Measures should not be short-sighted and damage the momentum of economic growth in the long run. Present problems were due to a range of macro-factors including the regional crisis. Professor LAU SIU-KAI Associate director of Asia-Pacific Research Institute of the Chinese University: 'I don't see any merits in it. People are pessimistic about the broad economic environment. Until they see the light at the end of the tunnel, everything will be cosmetic. What the Government has done now will put it at a disadvantage. Now it's said it's obliged to take the lead, it's put its own credibility on the line and will have to face the consequences.' EDDIE NG HAK-KIM Immediate past president of the Hong Kong Institute of Personnel Management: 'The Government should make clear whether the skills of the 120,000 unemployed match the 100,000 jobs which are to be created.'
