Following his election last Sunday, Hong Kong's new representative for Information Technology, Hon. Charles Mok, has got down to work, meeting with the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Mr Gregory So on September 12 for an exchange of views on policy matters.
A news.gov.hk press release reported Mr. So said, "I am glad that Mr Yiu Si-wing and Mr Charles Mok, the two newly elected members from the functional constituencies of Tourism and Information Technology respectively, accepted my invitation to meet today. We had very useful exchanges of views on matters that require our attention."
During his election campaign, Mr. Mok discussed the needs to review the Unsolicited Electronic Messaging Ordinance (UEMO) and update the Electronic Transaction Ordinance. He noted that the last review for combating cybercrime was in 2000 and that there could be an umbrella review of cybersecurity policy.
At the time of writing, the Legislative Council website had not been updated to show the new Members. The Members' Biographies and Members' Contact Directory still showed the composition of the fourth Legislative Council, not the fifth.
