Current legislative councilor (IT constituency) Samson Tam announced Monday that it will run for the same seat in the Legco election in September.
Four years ago, Tam had a narrow win over Mok by 35 votes in the same race.
“The ICT industry worked together in the past four years to make the government realize that the industry needs a positioning,” said Tam, “Now the government has made its first move—having started to work on cloud and datacenter development as well as promising [the establishment of] the Technology and Communications Bureau.”
“The [ICT] industry must continue to work together to make further changes and an impact on the economy,” he noted.
The next IT representative [in Legco] must communicate with the government the tech industry’s expectations and monitor the government’s progress in helping local ICT pros and businesses capture opportunities in China, he added.
