Hong Kong Policy Research Institute - Researcher/ Research Assistant (Town Planning)

Hong Kong Policy Research Institute

Hong Kong Policy Research Institute (“The Institute”), set up in 1995, is a leading public policy think tank in Hong Kong and is internationally recognized.

Since 2016, the Institute has been undertaking a series of research studies entitled Hong Kong Vision Project, focusing on the major challenges facing Hong Kong and their solutions. To cope with the dynamic urban development, a team has been set up to look into various issues. We have, e.g., recently published a research report on Public Private Partnership for Land Provision, which has received wide public attention. We are now looking for suitable candidates to join our urban development team to continue other studies.
