2016/12/05香港總商會關於《內地與香港關于建立更緊密經貿關係的安排》("CEPA") 進一步開放的意見和建議
香港總商會每年均向內地及香港政府就CEPA的下一步開放政策及實施情況提供建議。此次建議書,其中一個重點是建議內地政府考慮給予符合CEPA原産地規則的香港原産貨物“國民待遇”,在進入內地市場後享受與內地生産商同樣便捷的行政管理程序。
2016/12/05香港總商會關於《內地與香港關於建立更緊密經貿關係的安排》(“CEPA”)進一步開放的意見和建議
2016/11/29Consultation Paper on the 2016 Preliminary Draft Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments
The Chamber believes that public discussion should focus on the potential merits and demerits of implementing the Convention rather than the Convention’s provisions, which is the approach adopted in the consultation paper. The Government should also take stock of existing measures for enforcing foreign judgments before consideration is given to Convention accession.
2016/10/25Joint Consultation Paper on Proposed Enhancements to The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited's Decision-Making and Governance Structure for Listing Regulation
The Chamber does not support the proposals as set out in the consultation paper mainly because there is insufficient evidence to show that there will be net gains from doing so.
2016/10/25Promotion of Sustainable Consumption of Biological Resources
Promotion of sustainable consumption of biological resources requires concerted efforts through a mix of effective tools and instruments of all stakeholders to facilitate fundamental changes of consumption patterns under definitive government leadership.
2016/08/22Some Proposed Amendments to the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622) and its subsidiary legislation
The Chamber’s response to the Government’s proposed amendments to the Companies Ordinance and its subsidiary legislations is as given in the attached paper.
2016/08/19HKGCC proposals on Belt-and-Road Opportunities for Hong Kong’s Financial Services Sector
The Chamber’s proposals for Hong Kong to capitalise on the national initiative of Belt and Road by leveraging on its competencies in the field of financial services are set out in the attached.
2016/07/20Consultation on Working Hours Policy Directions
The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce supports, in principle, the concept of having a “big frame”. We believe this option would adequately address employers and employees’ concerns about working hours, overtime and compensation arrangements without resorting to legislation. We object to the “small frame” as this artificial manipulation of employment terms for part of the labour force might weaken the flexibility of the labour market, thereby undermining our economy’s ability to adjust in adverse market conditions.
2016/07/12Development of Trade Single Window in Hong Kong
The Chamber is supportive of the proposal to introduce a one-stop IT platform for the submission and processing of all business-to-government documents and would like to see this implemented as soon as possible. On the other hand, it is not in favour of replacing the existing arrangement with post-shipment declaration with the requirement for pre-shipment declaration.
2016/06/21Public Engagement Exercise on Retirement Protection
In its submission on retirement protection, the Chamber has expressed support for directing our finite resources to helping the less well-off including the poor elderly in Hong Kong. This would necessarily entail a means-tested approach to determine eligibility. The Chamber has also called for a wholistic review of the MPF system to enhance this very important retirement pillar. Mere focus on the MPF’s offsetting mechanism would be too narrow and of limited use to be effective.
