HONG KONG, May 16 (Xinhua) -- The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government announced on Tuesday the expansion of its talent list, which increased the coverage from 13 professions to 51, to attract more high-quality talent to come and meet Hong Kong's development needs.

The adjustment immediately applies to the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme, the General Employment Policy and the Admission Scheme for Mainland Talents and Professionals, according to the HKSAR government.
