  INTRODUCTION
  The Chief Executive (CE) delivered his 2011-12 Policy Address on 12 October 2011 entitled “From Strength to Strength”. This is supported by the Policy Agenda which lists the HKSAR Government’s new and ongoing initiatives and a booklet on “Major Achievements of the Third Term Government of the HKSAR” (the Achievement Booklet). This paper reports on the achievements and elaborates on those initiatives under the Development Bureau (DEVB).
