Abstract Annual report on labour conditions in Hong Kong, including statistics of occupational injuries and industrial accidents (comparative tables, 1993 to 1997) by major economic sector and by cause. In 1997, there were 58 fatalities resulting from industrial accidents, of which 41 occurred in the construction industry. During 1997, 21 items of labour legislation were enacted to improve work safety, employee benefits and welfare. New labour legislation was also enacted to enable Hong Kong to conform with the latest developments in international labour standards. With the return of sovereignty to China, Hong Kong may participate in international labour conferences as part of Chinese delegations, but retains the possibility of participating in its own name for activities not limited to Member State governments.
