The third Jockey Club Age-friendly City Partnership Scheme Award Presentation Ceremony was held on 11 May 2023 at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Mr Chris Sun, HKSAR Government Secretary for Labour and Welfare, and Mr Bryan Wong, Head of Charities (Ageing and Elderly Care) of The Hong Kong Jockey Club, were the officiating guests at the ceremony.
Six special awards were presented in the ceremony, including the Age-friendly Employer Award, Age-friendly Facilities Award, Age-friendly Business Innovation Award, Age-friendly Collaborator Award, Our City’s Story Award, and My Favourite City Partnership Scheme Award, to companies and organisations that performed outstandingly under the Scheme. Among those participating in the Scheme this year, more than two-thirds were first-time joiners, indicating that increasingly more companies and organisations from different sectors are keen to promote age-friendly measures.
Representatives from the award-winning companies and organisations were also invited to share their best practices and practical experiences in sharing sessions themed “Co-create an inclusive world for the elderly” and "Age-friendly measures tap new business opportunities and compete for talents", to help the audience understand the importance and benefits of implementing age-friendly measures.
