About Us


The main function of the Commission is to report to the Chief Executive in Council its recommendation about the Statutory Minimum Wage rate. The Commission must have regard to the need—
(a) to maintain an appropriate balance between the objectives of forestalling excessively low wages and minimizing the loss of low-paid jobs; and
(b) to sustain Hong Kong’s economic growth and competitiveness.
Before arriving at the recommendation to be included in its report, the Commission may as it thinks fit—
(a) consult any organization representative of employers or employees or any other person;
(b) consider any submission made to it in the course of its consultations; and
(c) analyse and consider any data derived from, and consider any other information contained in, any research or study.
