Computerisation in the Government

The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region plays two essential roles in relation to computerisation. It acts as a facilitator for building up the necessary and favourable infrastructure so that the information technology (IT) industry can operate and support other industries effectively. It also acts as a user of IT to support its own operational and managerial needs.

It is the Government's established policy to take full advantage of modern IT. Some relevant figures concerning computerisation in the Government are as follows :

Computerisation Figures Percentage
Percentage of staff with Designated Workstation (as at May 2017) 99%
Percentage of staff with Internet access (as at May 2017) 91%
Percentage of staff with internal e-mail access (as at May 2017) 76%
