Independent and politically neutral
As Hong Kong becomes more politicised, the need for a means for the ruling class and those seeking to influence policy making to learn, share information and professionalise policy formation becomes apparent.
New people are engaged in the political process than ever – willingly or unwillingly. The vast majority, while successful in other spheres of business and community, are neophytes to the political process.
The need for people to expand their knowledge of options and how to make them effective policy, is dire. The need to communicate political ideas across political divides is acute. The need to move faster to know and influence political actors is at critical levels. Current media is very little help at all.
