跟進電動個人代步工具的規管

目前香港仍然禁止新興電動個人代步工具於道路上行駛,但不少其他城市已設立登記或牌照制度,准許代步工具合法地在道路上行駛。我最新的議會質詢再次追問政府何時會立法規管,讓市民能合法使用代步工具。政府回應表示,正進行「提升香港易行度顧問研究」,預計會於2020年中完成,政府會參考研究結果,檢討是否需要就電動可移動工具引入相關規管制度,以及有否需要就電動可移動工具推行試驗計劃等課題。(閱讀全文)

要求延長法改會諮詢

法律改革委員會為《檔案法》和公開資料制度進行歷時五年的研究,但諮詢期卻只有三個月。我與陳淑莊議員於本週三聯同推動立法多年的香港記者協會、檔案行動組和法政匯思等民間團體舉行記者會,發起網上聯署向法改會主席鄭若驊爭取延長諮詢期兩個月,希望藉此喚起市民關注並踴躍提出意見。 新聞稿 |  觀看記者會

從四千元看香港的智慧政府

政府近年主打發展智慧城市,又號稱投放大量資源革新電子公共服務,但為財政預算案補鑊的4000元『關愛共享計劃』花近一年時間籌備,又耗用超過3億元行政費,但安排極度混亂,包括申請表格不足、電話熱線無法打通、手續繁複、只接受郵寄和親身遞交表格卻不設網上申請等,被轟安排極度不便。(閱讀全文)

星港FinTech對決:鬥快鬥貼地

近年香港和新加坡在爭奪亞洲以致全球金融科技樞紐方面競爭激烈,兩地政府都視之為對經濟發展的重要支柱。而另一邊廂新加坡2015年開始拓展FinTech,其政府作風主動領導營造市場、凝聚人才和資源,旨在把新加坡打造成為亞洲金融科技之都。兩地在推動金融科技發展有何相異之處?有否香港借鑑之處?(閱讀全文)

前線IT人被壓榨 政府成中介幫兇

政府多年來不停大幅外判資訊科技職位,對合約制度長期壓榨員工和影響IT人工作穩定的問題「隻眼開隻眼閉」,對有意投身IT界的人起負面示範。最新數字顯示,現時約有3140名「T合約」員工和約2241名屬公務員編制或以非公務員合約條款聘請的IT人員,差距雖然比幾年前略為收窄,但仍然非常大。(閱讀全文)

Updates on the regulation of electric personal mobility devices

Currently the use of electric personal mobility devices is outlawed in Hong Kong. However, many other cities around the world have already introduced registration or licensing systems for citizens to use these devices legally. In my recent Council question, I once again urged the government to put forward regulations to give a greenlight for the use of those devices in Hong Kong. The government replied that a Consultancy Study on Enhancing Walkability in Hong Kong is ongoing and is expected to be completed in mid-2020. The Government will make reference to the findings of the study to consider the need to introduce a regulatory system and a trial scheme for electric mobility devices. (Read more)

Urging for longer consultation periods for Archives Law and Access to Information

The Law Reform Commission took five years to research on Archives Law and Access to Information, but it only allowed 3 months for public consultation. Together with Hon Tanya Chan, Hong Kong Journalists Association, Archives Action Group and Progressive Lawyers Group, a press conference was held on Wednesday to launch an online petition, calling on the LRC Chairman Teresa Cheng to extend the consultation periods for another two months.

Explanation needed for delaying the 5G discussion in Legco

5G and the relevant spectrum issues were scheduled items on the agenda at the Legco Panel on Information Technology and Broadcasting on January 14 but was later postponed to February. However, in the latest meeting agenda for February, the topic was missing again and no further date for discussion was provided in the List of Outstanding Items. I have issued a joint letter with Hon Alvin Yeung and Hon James To to the government, demanding a proper explanation for the delay at the next meeting of the panel.

Reforming the T-contract system

From December to mid-January, I have solicited feedback from government IT contract workers on the new T25 contract and tabled a policy submission to the government at a recent meeting of the Legco Panel on Public Service, calling for the government and the contractors to improve the welfare and benefits, and also for the government to provide more transparency and information to T-contract workers.

Fostering the development of Fintech

Legco recently debated a member’s motion on “promoting the development of a financial technology hub to reinforce Hong Kong’s position as an international financial centre”, I put forward an amendment to call for more support on Fintech training to the workforce, financial institutions to open more API, regulatory review for Fintech innovations, improvement on privacy and cybersecurity protection. My amendment was approved.

Reforming STEM education in Hong Kong

Following the Fintech motion, there was another floor debate on the motion of “implementing diversified education to alleviate the pressure on students and parents”. I submitted an amendment motion to call for reform on the STEM education, in a bid to strengthen the digital skills of our young generation and equip them with the necessary skill sets to remain competitive. My other recommendations called for the use of new technology to improve learning and teaching, and enhance the subsidy for underprivileged families to purchase equipments for e-learning. My amendment was approved.

Open Data Policy Discussion

On 24 January 2019, I invited the team behind data.gov.hk from the OGCIO to introduce the recently published annual government open data plan and their future initiatives. Glad to facilitate a valuable dialogue between the government and businesses, academics, developers and civil society.

✍🏻Articles

We need a smarter government

The application procedures of the government’s $4000 handout are considered inconvenient and tedious, drawing lots of criticism from the public. While the government is said to be steering Hong Kong towards Smart City, yet it has been reluctant to deploy smart methods to facilitate public services, and not even setting up a simple online form in this case.

Fintech policy: Hong Kong vs Singapore

Both Hong Kong and Singapore have set forth to develop Fintech. However, compared to Hong Kong, Singapore has launched more aggressive measures on talent nurturing, industry transformation and fostering the application of Fintech. What are some Fintech practices that Hong Kong can adopt?

Government as part of the T-con problem that needs to be fixed

For many years, the government has outsourced a large number of IT positions and turned a blind eye on the welfare problems of the contract workers. Currently, there are 3140 contract IT workers in the government, comparing to 2241 civil servants and non-civil service contract staff. This is unacceptable.
