Hong Kong Productivity Council
HK$1,000,000

Provide up to HK$1,000,000 funding on a matching basis for maximum of 10 projects, target mainland China markets
To help Hong Kong enterprises capture the opportunities arising from the National 12th Five-Year Plan, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government set up a “Dedicated Fund on Branding, Upgrading and Domestics Sales” (the BUD Fund) of $1 billion in June 2012. To help SMEs, including start-ups, grasp economic opportunities and boost their competitiveness, the 2018-19 Budget proposed to extend the geographical scope of the BUD Fund to include the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) markets by launching the “ASEAN Programme”, and to increase the cumulative funding ceiling per enterprise for projects involving the Mainland China Market (the “Mainland Programme”). The Finance Committee of the Legislative Council approved the enhancement proposal and funding injection of $1.5 billion in June 2018.
