民主思路 2020施政報告建議書

October 2020

經歷修例風波與新冠肺炎的雙重打擊,政治制度的既有缺陷突顯,經濟表現步入衰退期,國際博弈令香港危機雪上加霜。香港市民和國際社會關注我城的自由程度和未來前景,特區政府應當竭力鞏固「一國兩制」優勢,善用高度自治權展現核心競爭力,保持國際聲望與地位。

疫情帶來沉重的社會經濟影響,經濟活動停擺令勞資雙方共陷困境。大眾出行受限、教育模式轉變,市民為適應疫下新生活也衍生新的民生需求。特區政府應該有效率地利用累積的庫房盈餘,撐經濟、保就業、顧民生,同舟共濟令社會復甦。

現今世代重視社會公義,深層次矛盾無助重拾希望與建立遠象。投資未來從不局限於基建,特區政府應該在教育、環保、房屋、醫療、社會共融等範圍作有意義的長遠投資,創造多元和豐盛的發展機會,重塑公平與開放的社會制度與競爭環境。

View on Increasing Land for Development and Homes

August 2018
