Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration, 2018, vol. 40, issue 1, 23-42

Abstract: This discussion, as Part II of a two-part article, complements the discussion in Part I (in December 2017) of the dynamics of poverty alleviation initiatives embodying important elements of policy attention, choice and change over time, beginning in the colonial era and running through to mid-2017. The focus here is on the diversity of poverty alleviation programmes adopted in terms of the choice of different types of instruments. Individually and together, the programmes as significant instruments of government policy provide valuable insights into the processes and content of policy-making in Hong Kong.
