(You raised the topic that the poor co-ordination of different bureaus was the cause of failure but you never explained clearly how the bureaus involved bungled the policy. For example, you mentioned the young artists turned vacant factories into art studios but you forgot to tell us which government department forced the artists out and on what grounds. Since your emphasis was on the bureaucratic snafu, you should give us names and exposed in details how uncoordinated they were. As to the phenomena that nobody wants incinerator or garbage dump or prisons build near their homes, there is a commonly accepted expression for it and which is NIMBY, meaning Not In My Back Yard.)

Fanny Law blames Hong Kong slow development on government co-ordination--105065 2012年11月28日 (三) 00:12 (UTC)

(28 November 2012) Member of Executive Council Fanny Law criticized in a university talk yesterday that the failure in developing the six priority industries of Hong Kong was originated from the poor co-ordination of different bureaux.

One category in the six industries is the cultural and creative industry. Law believes the youth in Hong Kong are full of creativity and they are willing to set up their own business, but the government policy did not cope with the development plan.

Many art performers in Hong Kong have to rent rooms in industrial buildings owing to high rental of office place. The policy of revitalizing old factory buildings, however, forces artists to move their workshops now.

Law said that Hong Kong, in general, enjoys lots of advantages such as its geographical location and the low tax rate. Yet, she pointed out the speed of development of Hong Kong right now is falling behind.

"I've suggested setting up bureaux which are responsible for culture as well as creative industry and technology in Legco meetings from March through June this year in the hopes that there will be experts for strengthening the development of these industries," she said. "But there isn't anything turning out."

Law also took the example of solving the problem of increasing domestic waste to illustrate the government's failure. She said the amount of domestic waste produced every day per capita in Hong Kong is the highest all over the word; but plans of building incinerators were rejected and the recycling schemes in Hong Kong was not done well. Conversely, Law stated that some countries like Germany make good use of incinerators to generate electricity, an environmentally friendly way to tackle the problem of increasing waste.

She said that every time the government just gave out the plan and let the market to run it, without offering help in stepping up the development.

"The speed of development is so slow that we are falling behind to the old days," said Law. "If we still keep moving in the existing pace, it will affect the living of our next generation."

Law added that there were no new major development in Hong Kong after the commence of the international airport in Chek Lap Kok 13 years ago; and lands in West Kowloon and Kai Tak are still far from well developed.

In 2009, former Chief Executive Donald Tsang announced to develop six industries in which Hong Kong enjoys clear advantages, including testing and certification, medical services, innovation and technology, cultural and creative industries, environmental industries and education services.
