Mainland migrants good for Hong Kong, paper says

Mainland migrants are needed for Hong Kong’s development, the South China Morning Post reported Thursday, citing a commentary in Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily. Most new migrants earn their living rather than rely on social security and some become the city’s new elite, the report said, quoting the 1,600-page article. It cited the case of film actress Tang Wei who obtained Hong Kong residency in 2009 through the quality migrant scheme.
