成立創新及科技局時序表 (2014年)

1月15日:特首梁振英在2014 施政報告中建議成立創新及科技局








Joint Statement of "Support Establishment of Innovation and Technology Bureau, Urge LegCo Members not to Filibuster"

The government has submitted relevant documents to the LegCo regarding the establishment of the Innovation and Technology Bureau. The proposal will undergo a series of discussions (including a special public hearing in the Panel on Information Technology and Broadcasting), followed by a debate on funding allocation in the Finance Committee. Meanwhile, some LegCo members have said that they will filibuster to stop the passing of such proposal. We are worried that the proposal will be rejected at the end which will hinder the future development of innovation and technology industry in Hong Kong.

Innovation and technology are the keys to sustainable and diversified economic development, and essential in enhancing Hong Kong’s competitiveness as a knowledge-based economy, as well as improving people's livelihood and benefiting our society as a whole. Our neighboring economies highly value the innovation and technology development by formulating comprehensive and long-term strategy, and setting up designated departments to facilitate implementations. Establishing the new Bureau will not only help promote local research & development, but will also bring about more career opportunities to our next generation.

Over the years, we have been lagging behind Singapore and under the threat of being overtaken by other neighboring regions. Setting up the Innovation and Technology Bureau is a golden opportunity to strengthen Hong Kong’s competitive edge over Singapore. We should grasp the opportunity and therefore, I sincerely invite your organization to support our government’s proposal and urge LegCo members to discard their intention to filibuster, allowing the proposal to pass.

Timeline of Innovation and Technology Bureau Establishment (2014)

15 January:Chief Executive CY Leung proposed to establish Innovation and Technology Bureau (ITB) in the Policy Address 2014.

9 April:Government submitted a proposal to establish the ITB.

14 April:The proposal was discussed in the Panel on Information Technology and Broadcasting. Hon Wong Yuk Man, Chairman of the panel, suggested to call a special meeting for further discussion. Meanwhile, some panel members agreed to organize a public hearing.

15 April:The proposal was discussed in the Panel on Commerce and Industry. A motion on “Urge to establish the Innovation and Technology Bureau” was passed.

Late April to May:There will be a public special meeting in the Panel on Information Technology and Broadcasting for further discussion. (Date will be confirmed.)

Late May to June:Government will propose to the Establishment Subcommittee for structure of the ITB, creation and redeployment of positions. (Date will be confirmed.)

On or before 11 July:Government will seek for approval from Finance Committee on the ITB proposal. (Date will be confirmed.)

Since the summer recess of LegCo will begin during mid-July, the schedule for establishment of ITB will be very tight. If the proposal cannot be passed by the end of this term, we have to wait until the LegCo meetings resuming in October. It may cause further variables to the establishment.
