Legislative councillor +Charles Mok has developed a preliminary proposal to the Chief Executive last week regarding the role and structure of the Innovation and Technology Bureau (“ITB”) which will be put forward to LegCo.

This preliminary document outlines (very broadly) how ITB can support Open Data, inside the HK Gov and with citizens and industry.
