Ms Ho emigrated from Guangzhou to Canada with her family two years ago, but they are now looking forward to moving to Hong Kong under the new investor migrant scheme. 'I hope we can be the first applicants. We want to move to Hong Kong as soon as possible,' said Ms Ho, who is in her 30s. The mother of two, who does not want to be named in full, said her family was overjoyed when they heard about the Capital Investment Entrant Scheme. 'I'm so happy. My husband is even more excited about it than me,' she said. The family obtained residency in Canada after moving to Vancouver two years ago. But Ms Ho said it would be more convenient if they could live in Hong Kong, since her husband often needed to fly here to manage his trading businesses in the city. 'My daughter likes Hong Kong very much. She likes the food and shops there. I like shopping in Hong Kong, too,' Ms Ho said. She had already started looking for schools for her 10-year-old daughter but her son, aged 8, would probably stay in Canada to study. She said they were planning to spend the required $6.5 million investment to buy a flat in Hong Kong. Ms Ho had already invested about $3 million in bonds in Hong Kong before the scheme was announced. But she said the Hong Kong government should consider lowering the $6.5 million minimum investment. 'I can introduce many more of my friends to join if the amount is just $5 million,' she said. Despite the strong desire to get to Hong Kong, a settled life in Canada remained the family's long-term goal, Ms Ho said.
