[ Biography ]

 

As China's Belt and Road initiative is busy reconstructing and expanding the Silk Road, the Digital Silk Road is already connected and fast growing, much facilitated by the continuing growth of the Digital Economy which has brought with it many new opportunities such as Fintech, Edtech, Medtech, e-commerce and e-government and new solutions to such old problems as the Digital Gap, lack of inclusiveness and lack of support for SMEs and youth. Hong Kong has a unique set of competitive advantages as reflected by the city's core strengths such as excellent infrastructure, world-class rule of law, the "One Country, Two Systems" constitutional framework, free port status, a simple and low tax regime, effective and accountable government and being part of the world-leading Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area, and is thus well positioned as the Digital Silk Road's "International General Terminal", "International Data Hub", "Fintech Capital", "Digital Asset Management Centre", and "Technology Investment Centre", "Digital Currency International Platform", and "Digital Economy Talents Base". Many opportunities can be seized by Hong Kong but it must allocate sufficient resources now to various important areas in order to secure and enhance its strategic role on the Digital Silk Road; for example, Hong Kong must put in place an effective population and immigration policy to ensure an ongoing influx and retention of top-calibre talents and their families and to upgrade and reshape the education system to further raise the overall quality of the population enabling Hong Kong people to become both willing and able to take on the new challenges of the Digital Economy era.

當“一帶一路”倡議正在重塑及拓展絲路的同時,另一條絲路 - 數字絲路 - 已在運作及不停地增長中,以配合數字經濟的冒起,也同時為世界帶來很多新機會,包括金融科技、教育科技、醫療科技、電商及電子政務, 以及對一些舊問題的解決方案,例如數字鴻溝、經濟包容性及對中小型企業和年青人支持方面的不足。香港享有獨特的競爭優勢,例如優良的基建、世界領先的法治、“一國兩制”的憲政系統、自由港的制度、簡單及低稅率的稅制、高效及有擔當的政府、以及有粵港澳大灣區在旁的地理位置,也因此在數字絲路上擁有獨特的戰略角色 - 香港是數字絲路的“國際總站”、“國際數據中心”、“金融科技大本營”、“數字資產管理中心”、“科技投資中心”、“數字貨幣國際平台”及“數字經濟人才基地”。香港因而可以把握很多機會但是必須在各重要範疇刻不容緩地投入足夠資源以保持及鞏固此戰略地位; 例如需要落實一個有成效的人口及移民政策以不斷吸引及保留來自全球的高端人才和他們的家人,同時需要提升及重塑教育系統以大大提高港人的整體質素以確保市民有足夠能力及信心面對數字經濟時代的新挑戰。
