Authored by: Simon Deane and Crystal Choi

On 28 October 2022, at a Policy Briefing meeting of the LegCo Panel on Constitutional Affairs, the Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs (“SCMA”), Mr Erick TSANG Kwok-wai, responded to a member’s question on amending the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (“PDPO”) to cope with the development of digital economy and e-Government. Mr Tsang said that the Government had a comprehensive vision to meet the challenges arising from technological developments and would review relevant developments and update the PDPO to align it with global privacy protection trends. He said the Government would also strike a balance between privacy protection and economic development and consult the Legislative Council on the appropriate amendments in due course.
