Existing and planned measures on the promotion of equality for ethnic minorities
The Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) attaches great importance to ensuring equal access to its services by all members of the public, irrespective of their racial background. Where applicable, measures will be taken to cater for the special needs of the ethnic minorities, such as their service needs. We will also continue to ensure that the provision of services to the public is in compliance with the Race Discrimination Ordinance.Services Concerned
The ITC currently manages several funding schemes which are open for application from eligible organisations or companies, such as the Innovation and Technology Fund.Existing Measures
Although the applicants of our funding programmes are limited to organisations or companies, our services are neutral with regard to race and are delivered in both Chinese and English.
We will continue to strictly enforce the existing measures, and assess our service delivery regularly to ensure neutrality in regard to race and that they are delivered bilingually.Additional Measures Taken / To Be Taken
Should we have to deal with an ethnic minority group, we shall put in place the necessary measures to ensure that the information is in a comprehensible form to our clients.
We will update the above measures and include other new measures in the checklist as and when appropriate.
