Local Mask Production Subsidy Scheme

In view of the spread of the COVID-19 worldwide, the demand for masks has surged significantly, aggravating the acute supply shortage situation in Hong Kong which largely relies on import for masks and driving up prices. The HKSAR Government has launched the “Local Mask Production Subsidy Scheme” (the Scheme) under the Anti-epidemic Fund, facilitating the start of local mask production as soon as possible to help address the imminent shortage as well as to build up some reserve stock. The Hong Kong Productivity Council administers the Scheme and serves as the Secretariat, and the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau (CEDB) is responsible for approving applications.
