  2. Formulate a temporary unemployment benefit for young people.
  3. Increase spending in education and vocational training.
  4. Relieve the financial burden of loan repayment on young graduates.
  5. Subsidise local firms to create job opportunities in the Greater Bay Area.
  6. Offer wage subsidy for young people working in the Greater Bay Area.
