"In the near term, the overall labor market is expected to remain tight on the back of a vibrant local economy," the Secretary for Labor and Welfare, Dr Law Chi-kwong, said.
"Yet, we will stay vigilant to the evolving external uncertainties and monitor their potential impact on the local labor market closely."
