2019/10/10Submission on Public Consultation on 2025 Air Quality Objectives Review

2019/08/01Submission on Mainland Individual Income Tax to the development of the GBA
The Chamber suggests that the difference between the day-counting rule of the Mainland Individual Income Tax and that of the Hong Kong / Mainland Taxation arrangement should be addressed and aligned in order to promote the long term development of the Greater Bay Area (GBA).
2019/07/19Consultation Paper on Review of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Reporting Guide and Related Listing Rules
The Chamber welcomes the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited‘s efforts to improve the quality of ESG reporting through this consultation exercise. We believe that such enhancements should be supplemented by further investments in education and training to promote better understanding of the intentions behind and benefits of ESG reporting .
2019/04/16Consultation Paper on Statutory Cooling-Off Period For Beauty and Fitness Services Consumer Contracts
The Chamber appreciates that the intent behind the Government’s proposals is to address questionable sales tactics and protect Hong Kong consumers. However, we have reservations about the measures, as there is an existing piece of law that already addresses aggressive trade practices, and also due to the lack of a rigorous review that would assess the impact of introducing such a legislative change.
2019/04/16Proposed Amendments to the raising penalties of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Legislation
The Chamber agrees with the Government's objective to lower rate of industrial accidents. However, the Chamber queries whether the proposed substantial increase in the maximum statutory level of penalties on businesses can achieve such objective. The Government should take a holistic approach and focus on other approaches to reducing industrial accidents, instead of simply increasing penalties and fines.

The Chamber supports the updating of Hong Kong’s laws to allow the implementation of the Madrid Protocol domestically.

The Chamber has called for clarification of a few matters outstanding from the last round of consultation in 2016. The Chamber has also suggested that instead of a selective approach, all antitrust (competition) matters should be excluded from the Convention.
