提出開放數據議案獲通過

政府一直以「交通數據是企業的私有財產」為由,拒絕在要求巴士公司開放實時到站數據。我在交通事務委員會提出議案並獲得通過,促請政府在審批城巴及新巴的加價申請時,加入條件要求兩家專營巴士公司開放實時到站資訊,並加強統籌各專營巴士營運商向公眾開放實時班次資料的應用程式介面(API),以“機器可讀”的數碼格式發放實時到站資訊,方便程式開發者運用創意為市民提供更多創新服務,推動本港智慧城市發展。(議案文本

 

要求改革出租車服務牌照制度

政府有意提升的士服務質素並推出多項相關措施,然而當局始終允許的士業界繼續壟斷市場,導致行業缺乏競爭,漠視市民對優質、便捷的點對點交通服務需求。隨著本港發展智慧城市,如何令共乘和網約車與現有公共交通系統相輔相成,接駁不足的偏遠地區或者居住人口未足以支持營運固定路線的地方等等發展方向值得探討。就此我向交通事務委員會提交了意見書,要求政府就改革出租車服務牌照制度進行獨立研究並諮詢公眾。(閱讀意見書

 

跟進市民受共享單車公司停止營運影響

共享單車公司Gobee.bike 早前宣布結束在香港的業務,雖然用戶獲退還所有按金,但已支付的賬戶存額卻不獲退回。我隨即去信消費委員會要求跟進,除了要求Gobee.bike向用戶一併退還存額,亦要求該公司確保用戶的數據資料獲得妥善處理。

如何營造開放數據生態

目前市民愈來愈習慣使用科技以協助處理有關財務、投資、銀行事宜,每人都可能正使用不同銀行提供的流動應用程式以獲取資訊和處理財務交易。不同渠道可獲取的資訊不一,透明度不足且難以比較,令消費者想比較各種銀行服務也不容易。(閱讀全文

 

加密貨幣監管 機不可失

目前,ICO和加密貨幣交易平台質素良莠不齊,一般人缺乏知識和資料,難以分辨是否騙局。行業自我監管是加密貨幣和ICO界推動的方向,但對於風險為本的監管機構而言,被接納的機會較低。(閱讀全文

 

打好議會團體戰

立法會今個會期告一段落,筆者亦可卸下民主派召集人身份。回顧過去一年,驚濤駭浪實不足以形容民主派在議會內外面對的困難。先有《議事規則》、財務委員會議事程序修改,再有立法會主席一再濫權削弱立法會議事功能,後有違憲的「一地兩檢」粗暴通過。(閱讀全文

Urging for more transport data to be open to public

When asked about opening up transport data, the government always shrugged off the responsibility by claiming the data belongs to transport companies. At the meeting of the Legco Panel on Transport on July 25th, my motion calling on the government to urge transport companies to open up their data was passed.
 

Reforming the regulation on hire car permit

The ongoing monopoly of the taxi industry is not only opposed by consumers demanding for better services, it is also against the vision of Smart City. It is disappointing to see the government reluctant to change the status quo and allow the monopoly to exist. Calling on for changes, I urged the government to reform the hire car permit regulation and consult the public for thoughts in a submission I tabled to the Legco Panel on Transport.
 

Following up on Gobee.bike shut down

Bike sharing company Gobee.bike decided to shut down its business in Hong Kong. Despite it has promised to return the deposits to users, unused credit balance is however not refundable. I have written to Consumer Council and urged the authority to pursue the matter and requested the company to safeguard the user data.

 

 

Event highlights

 

 

 

Government should gear up for the AI era

Accountancy lawmaker Kenneth Leung organised a conference in mid-July on how Artificial Intelligence will impact the accountancy sector. At a panel discussion, I mentioned how AI will disrupt all sectors and impact the workforce and the government has to prepare for the changes ahead.

Blockchain regulation around the world

The 2018 Asia Blockchain Summit was held early this month in Taipei. Over 2,500 participants from around the world participated in the discussion on blockchain technology and regulatory issues, and many of them are blockchain experts and lawmakers from different countries. Speaking on a panel, I talked about the blockchain development in Hong Kong and also how different cities can collaborate using blockchain technology.

Shaping the ecosystem for open data

It is becoming more common for people using technology-aided services to manage their personal finance. However, the lack of transparency in data is making users acquiring information across different banks and financial institutions difficult.
 

Time to regulate cryptocurrencies

The existing ICO trading platforms available on the market each demonstrating different standards. Without enough information, it is challenging for investors and the public to evaluate the quality of ICO projects. While the ICO industry looks for self-regulation, financial watchdogs are unlikely to accept.

 

A year in review as convenor of the pan-democrats

Looking back this year in Legco, pan-democratic camp has faced tremendous challenges. From trying to stop the pro-establishment from undermining the power of Legco by amending the Rules of Procedure, to the fight on the co-location arrangement and the abuse of power by the Legco President, every war required the pan-democrats to work together.
