Hong Kong Government Launches New Online Portal

The Hong Kong authorities announced this week that a new one-stop online portal, GovHK, has been launched in order to offer a comprehensive range of online government information and services to the community.

Government Chief Information Officer Howard Dickson revealed on Wednesday that GovHK has adopted a "citizen-centric approach", to provide the most popular online government information and services, focusing on the public's needs and interests.

The new portal aims to serve three broad user groups - residents, businesses and trades, and non-residents.

For the 'residents' user group, there are 11 subject-based clusters covering key areas of public interest. The clusters are:

  • Communications & Technology;
  • Culture, Leisure & Sports;
  • Education & Training;
  • Employment;
  • Environment;
  • Government, Law & Order;
  • Health & Medical Services;
  • Housing & Social Services;
  • Immigration Services;
  • Taxes & Duties; and
  • Transport & Motoring.

Information related to doing business in Hong Kong and the Mainland is available in the portal's 'Business & Trade' section.

Non-residents interested in visiting, investing, studying, working and living in Hong Kong can find the information and services they need in the 'non-residents' section.
