Meet.23: HK Gov – Open Data & Efficiency

 
meet-23
Two staffers from the Government Chief Information Officer will discuss what the HK Government is doing with Open Data, the opportunities, the challenges, the roadmap, as well as the outcomes of the recent Data.One competition, and other topics. Staffers will outreach and discuss with ODHK members.
Edit: I regret to inform that the Deputy Government Chief Information Officer Joey Lam will not be able to make it. Two other staffers will attend in her place. 
Our second speaker Kim Salkeld and his staff from the HK Gov Efficiency Unit will briefly discuss the role of his department to modernise government services. The unit is “tasked with pursuing the Government’s commitment to transforming the management and delivery of public services so that the community’s needs are met in the most effective and efficient manner. The unit works in partnership with bureaux and departments across the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to identify opportunities for performance enhancement, design practical solutions, develop compelling business cases, and secure effective implementation.”
