Improving Our Business Environment

Removing Barriers

36.       Since I became Financial Secretary, I have been pushing ahead with the work of removing barriers so as to improve our business environment.  In the past year, the Business Facilitation Advisory Committee has put forward a number of recommendations to streamline procedures in respect of the regulation of the construction and real estate sectors, food business, retail trade and entertainment industry.  To improve our licensing system further, we have introduced the "Be the Smart Regulator" programme, which includes setting up Business Liaison Groups for more business sectors, developing more comprehensive performance pledges and guides to licence applications, and promoting the wider use of electronic services.
