推動資訊科技專業認可制度

我和業界多年來持續推動提升行業的專業地位,希望能令資訊科技從業員有更高認受性。自2014年政府提出的專業認可方案遭立法會內的建制派議員投票要求擱置後(見當年會議紀要第13-14頁),2015年數碼21資訊科技策略諮詢委員會轄下的資訊及通訊科技專業發展及認可專責小組發表報告,就設立資訊科技業統一專業認可架構提出建議,但專責小組認為業內人士對推行細節未達共識,因此難以馬上推行統一架構。近年我多次要求政府重啟諮詢,但政府至今仍然拒絕,令人非常失望。

要求《檔案法》及《公開資料法》盡早立法

法律改革委員會轄下的兩個小組早前就《檔案法》及《公開資料法》發表諮詢文件。我多年來持續推動兩條法例立法,今次亦向法改會提交兩份意見書,當中建議包括減少絕對豁免的數目、要求全政府部門必須盡快實施拖延十年仍未落實的『電子檔案保管系統』等,我促請政府必須盡快就兩條條例立法,保障公民知情權同資訊流通。
 

推動中小企業及初創企業參與政府採購

政府過往的採購政策一直側重『價低者得』,價格評分比例過重成詬病,我多次要求政府改善政策。今年四月政府推出新採購政策,提高評審標書時技術評分在整體評分所佔比重。我要求政府交代去年的採購數據,並建議落實『數碼市集』及繼續完善採購政策,以幫助中小企業及初創企業參與投標。( 閱讀全文)
 

關注市民個人資料的保障

政府將於2020年推出數碼個人身分(eID)系統,計劃會有多項生物認證(包括人臉識別、指紋鑑別、虹膜辨識及聲紋辨識)技術為服務使用者作身分認證。然而,我了解到政府已於本年二月把提供構建、支援及維護eID系統的服務合約批予三家承辦商,其中兩家承辦商的辦公室設於深圳。我關注到有否措施確保市民的個人資料不會被傳送至香港境外,以及新系統對資料保障的詳情。( 閱讀全文)
 

要求政府交代創科資助計劃詳情

我早前透過審核本年度政府開支預算的機會,要求政府交代各項創科資助計劃的撥款資料及政策,包括「科技券計劃」、「企業支援計劃」、政府用T合約聘請資訊科技人員情況、推動智慧城市的工作進展等。

停止一意孤行 撤回「送中」惡法

港府一意孤行修例已經令各國響起警號,令人憂慮修例會否成為香港喪失特殊經濟地位的「最後一根稻草」,甚至引發外企和資金撤走。昨日美國國會的諮詢機構美中經濟與安全審查委員會(USCC)發表報告,直指港府修訂《逃犯條例》侵蝕香港自治,讓北京可以加強干預香港事務,更對美國居港公民和企業構成極大風險。( 閱讀全文)

 

反送中:人權和自由不能妥協

個人自由和人身安全日後是否仍能得到保障是市民最為關注的問題。內地刑事司法制度和人權紀錄劣績斑斑是眾所周知,若然《逃犯條例》惡法獲建制派支持在立法會通過,開啟港人被引渡到內地受審的潘多拉盒子,港人的人權和自由勢必受到嚴重衝擊。( 閱讀全文)

 

的士全方位監控絕不可取

的士每日平均載客量100萬人次,安裝車CAM大規模蒐集乘客容貌及談話內容,如前私隱專員蔣任宏大律師所言,可能令香港變成監控之都。影音片段若被圖謀不軌的人濫用,後果不堪設想。( 閱讀全文)

 

專營的士能否真正解決問題

當局一邊封殺網約車,認為600部專營的士作為「個人化點對點公共交通服務」的替代品將能迫使的士業界改善服務。最後計劃不會強制要求司機與公司訂立僱傭關係,作為改善的士司機待遇和吸引更多新血,專營的士到底能有多大作用?( 閱讀全文)

🗣️Council works

 

Urging for professional recognition for the IT industry

I have been consistently working with our sector to push for professional recognition for our professionals. However, after the pro-establishment force voted against the government’s proposal for a ICT professional recognition framework back in 2014 (see p.14-15 of the minutes), the Task Force on ICT Professional Development and Recognition subsequently issued a report in 2015 citing the difficulty to go forward without a consensus among the sector. The government’s proposal was left in abeyance ever since and my repeated calls for reopening consultation were once again denied in my recent Council question to the government. ( Read more)
 

Pushing for the implementation of the Archives Law and Access to Information

Responding to the consultation exercises by the Law Reform Commission on Archives Law and Access to Information, I submitted two proposals calling for expedition in legislation and drawing suggestions from the practices in overseas jurisdictions to ensure that the proposed laws will be effective in protecting the citizens’ right to know and enabling free access to information.
 

SMEs and start-ups participating in government procurement

I have been calling on the government to reform its procurement arrangements and not to award contract only by reference to the lowest price bid. In April this year, a new procurement policy was introduced by the government which raised the weighting of the technical aspect in the overall score during tender assessment. ( Read more)
 

Concerning the data protection of eID

The electronic identity (eID) system will be launched in 2020 and it will make use of biometric authentication technologies (including facial recognition, fingerprint identification, iris recognition and voiceprint recognition) to authenticate the identity of service users. However, it has come to my attention that several contracts were awarded to contractors locating in Shenzhen, stirring up concerns whether personal data of the public will be transmitted to places outside Hong Kong. I have requested the government to provide more details on this issue. ( Read more)
 

Data and information of the I&T policies and schemes

In scrutinising the government’s budget this year, I have made request for figures and data on different I&T policies and funding programmes, including the Technology Voucher Programme, Enterprise Support Scheme, the use of temporary contract on hiring IT workers, work progress of Smart City initiatives and more.

Human rights and freedom must not be compromised under the Extradition Bill

Worries and concerns over the criminal justice system in Mainland are not unfounded given its track record. The Extradition Bill will spell disaster to human rights and freedom in Hong Kong, and the interests of foreign companies and citizens will also be at stake. Many professional bodies, commercial sector and ordinary citizens are against the Bill, the government should listen to the demand and withdraw the Bill.

 

CCTV in taxi prompts privacy concerns

Taxis currently serve over 1 million passengers per day in Hong Kong. Installing camera devices inside the cabs would enable ‘Big Brother’ type of surveillance. There will also be severe consequences if the data collected falls into the wrong hands.

 

Will franchised taxi be the solution?

While the government procrastinates in legalising online hailing platforms, it will introduce 600 franchised taxis, claiming it will help the taxi industry to improve services. However, without mandating taxi companies to form employer-employee relationship with drivers, it is doubtful how the franchised taxi scheme will benefit drivers and attract new entrants.
