Letters | Hong Kong’s MPF scheme was designed to put the people last

From the outset, the Mandatory Provident Fund seemed to focus on the needs of the government, providers and employers rather than future retirees. Not all MPF contributors may be financially aware enough to monitor their accounts and the market.

Letters | Can’t accept ‘one country’ in Hong Kong? Head for the exits
