Hongkongers look set to benefit from access to jobs, housing funds and school places on the mainland.

The South China Morning Post reported that Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor revealed the new schemes on Friday as she wrapped up her maiden visit to Beijing, and her meeting with President Xi Jinping.

Hong Kong students graduating from mainland universities will be allowed to find jobs on the mainland; more Hong Kong children will be able to study in public schools; and Hongkongers working on the mainland will be able to contribute to a fund to help them own property.

Various mainland officials had committed to at least three new initiatives to help people in Hong Kong, Lam said.

- The education ministry will be issuing certificates from next summer to Hong Kong students who want to stay on the Mainland China to work after graduating from a Mainland Chinese university.

- Children born in Hong Kong and Macau will be entitled to free public school education on the mainland.

- Hongkongers working on the mainland will be the ability to contribute to a home ownership fund.

Beijing authorities said they would announce further details of these initiatives next week.
