As a leading independent policy think tank in Hong Kong, the Bauhinia Foundation Research Centre (BFRC) strives to put forth strategic ideas for the overall and long-term development of Hong Kong. Celebrating the 10th anniversary, we take this opportunity to review our achievements and experiences in policy research, and look closer into the social changes in the city over the past decade.
