The Voice of Business in Hong Kong since 1861



The Chamber's core function is to lobby on behalf of businesses' interests to ensure the competitiveness and integrity of the Hong Kong business community. We regularly submit policy statements and proposals to enhance our business environment. We urge all members to contribute your views and suggestions on how we can hone Hong Kong's position as one of the best places in the world to do business.
Public Consultation on the Review of the Statutory Minimum Wage Rate (“the Review”): Response by Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce ("HKGCC")

In view of Hong Kong’s strong economic performance and a positive outlook, HKGCC agrees that a moderate increase in SMW could be considered. Nevertheless, we should note that an excessive hike in the level of SMW could have a number of dire consequences. Therefore, attention should be given to a basket of factors such as the economic conditions, supply and demand, impact to businesses and cost of living, among others when reviewing SMW.

Review of Television and Sound Broadcasting Regulatory Regimes

The Chamber welcomes the Government’s decision to launch a review of the Broadcasting Ordinance and Telecommunications Ordinance, although we are surprised that it has taken six years to carry out this review. We would therefore like to resubmit our previous proposals for the Government’s consideration and call on it to expedite the process of updating these two pieces of legislation through a holistic rather than narrow approach.
