IT sector lawmaker Charles Mok held a press conference with several representatives from the IT industry after the funding to the Innovation and technology Bureau was passed in LegCo on November 6. “This is a first step,” Mok said and called for the release of a blueprint within the coming six months. He also urged the bureau to consult thoroughly with the sector and will arrange meetings between the new ITB head and the industry players.

Also speaking at the conference were members from IT Voice. Francis Fong, member of the organisation and currently the Chairman of Hong Kong Association of Interactive Marketing, urged the Advisory Committee on Innovation and Technology to expand its membership to include more representatives from the IT industry.

Another member of IT Voice, Ken Lam, mentioned the challenges in recruiting IT talents in Hong Kong as the city faces fierce competition from Silicon Valley. Mr Lam also cited the police action on Uber this year might deter young people from working in tech startups.
