  INTRODUCTION
  The Chief Executive (CE) delivered his 2015 Policy Address entitled “Uphold the Rule of Law, Seize the Opportunities, Make the Right Choices, Pursue Democracy, Boost the Economy, Improve People’s Livelihood” on 14 January 2015. This is supported by the Policy Agenda which sets out the Government’s new and on-going initiatives. This paper elaborates on those initiatives under Development Bureau (DEVB).
