香港工程師學會回應行政長官候選人李家超政綱 The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers’ Response to Election Manifesto of Chief Executive Candidate

(香港,2022年4月29日) 行政長官候選人李家超先生今日 (4月29日) 發表競選政綱,當中涵蓋多項有關工程的範疇。香港工程師學會 (下稱「學會」) 歡迎李先生提出的政綱,認同政府可循相關方向,為香港勾劃未來藍圖。

 

房屋問題困擾香港多年,學會期望多管齊下的土地房屋政策得以落實,儘快推展「明日大嶼」以增加土地,與「北部都會區」雙軌並行。北部都會區鄰近深圳,將能成為新發展引擎,聯同「明日大嶼」計劃,一同為香港拓展更多居住空間,完善城市布局。

 

學會認同增設工作組以有效檢視公營房屋及土地供應。有關精簡流程、公屋項目在社區設施落成前提早上樓,以及重啟和優化私人參建模式等倡議,學會期望各相關單位仔細研究其可行性及執行時間表,達致「提速、提效、提量」。

 

在提升香港競爭力,學會一直支持推動香港再工業化,亦多次建議開展可為業界增值的項目,鼓勵香港創科發展,以及開拓大灣區創科機遇,創造更多高價值工作崗位。在教育方面,學會將繼續不遺餘力推廣職業專才教育及推動STEAM教育普及化,培育新一代創科思維。

 

學會樂意向當局提供專業意見,讓工程業界與政府攜手,以結果為目標,共同為香港長遠發展出力,為香港發展揭開新篇章。

(Hong Kong, 5 May 2022) The Chief Executive candidate Mr Lee Ka Chiu John launched his election manifesto on 29 April 2022, covering various engineering-related areas.  The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) welcomes the manifesto and agrees that the Administration may consider pursuing relevant measures to outline the blueprint of the future Hong Kong.

 

Housing issues have persisted in Hong Kong for years. The HKIE envisioned that the multi-pronged approach as suggested in the manifesto, such as expediting the implementation of Lantau Tomorrow Vision (LTV) and the Northern Metropolis to boost land supply could be adopted to help alleviate the situation. The Northern Metropolis, being adjacent to Shenzhen, can be a new engine for Hong Kong’s development. These two mega projects will create more residential space and optimise urban planning.

 

The HKIE agrees the establishment of task force and steering committee to review and supervise public housing development and land supply. The HKIE hopes that relevant bureaux and departments could study the feasibility and timetable for the advocations of streamlining procedures, advancing allocation of public rental housing, as well as re-introducing and enhancing the Private Sector Participation Scheme, in order to achieve the objective of improving "speed, efficiency and volume" in land and housing supply.

 

With a vision to enhance Hong Kong’s competitiveness, the HKIE has long been calling for re-industrialisation of the city and has made multiple suggestions to develop value-adding projects for the industry, promote the development of innovation and technology, seize the abundant I&T opportunities in the Greater Bay Area, and create more high-value careers. In terms of education, the HKIE will continue to promote vocational and professional education as well as popularise STEAM education, nurturing the innovative thinking of the new generation.

 

The Institution is pleased to offer our professional views whenever needed to help improve the future of Hong Kong. With the "result-oriented" strategy, the engineering sector shall join hands with the Administration to contribute to the long-term development of Hong Kong and start a new chapter together.
