Bauhinia Well-being Index (BWI)


The Bauhinia Foundation Research Centre released a study on ‘Bauhinia Well-being Index’ today, which highlights that despite the upward performance of the Hong Kong economy in the last 15 years, the Bauhinia Well-being Index (BWI) remained almost stagnant, with a widening gap between the two. Between 2000 and 2015, Hong Kong’s cumulative growth in real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita was 56.9%, whilst the BWI was up by 0.4% only, showing that economic prosperity has no significant impact on people’s happiness.

This will also help to make more effective use of public and social resources.
