Does Hong Kong Financial Secretary John Tsang know what's really going on with our economy?
The kind of economy we need: "As a financial center that's historically been seen as the gateway to the Chinese market, Hong Kong is a great place to make money. What truly sets it apart is that residents actually get to keep most of the money they earn. With one of the lowest salaries tax rates in the world, capped at 15-17% and no sales tax or VAT, Hong Kong is an attractive place to work and play. The profits tax rate is the same for foreign and local companies at a low 16.5% and there's no capital gains tax in Hong Kong. That doesn't make the local government a charity case though. Property and shares trade keep the government flush -- Financial Secretary John Tsang estimates an HK$12 billion surplus for this year." CNN

Letter To Hong Kong (Radio Television Hong Kong program) Presenter: - Legislator Alan Leong 2013-03-03 HKT 08:15 Dear Fellow Hong Kong Citizens, A few days ago, the Financial Secretary John Tsang published his sixth budget. This, being his first budget under the administration of Leung Chun-ying, had originally raised some hopes amongst a public hungry for change. We quickly realised that the proposals, far from being a breath of fresh air, continue in the cautious and conservative style of bookkeeping Hong Kong grew tired of under Donald Tsang. To his credit, the Financial Secretary has consistently increased spending on education, healthcare and social welfare in the six years he has been in charge of our city’s finances. But with a surplus of about HK$64.9 billion and fiscal reserves of HK$734 billion expected by March 31, equivalent to 36 per cent of GDP or 23 months of government expenditure, it is only reasonable that we expect John Tsang to aim higher and focus on poverty alleviation of the grass ...
Hong Kong Boosts Spending on Social Programs - 27 Feb 2013, Wall Street Journal, Asia Edition Hong Kong—Awash in cash from its booming real-estate market, Hong Kong is boosting spending on social programs but saving most of its unexpectedly large budget surplus in case of a downturn. Unveiling the city's 440 billion Hong Kong dollar (US$56.8 billion) budget, Financial Secretary John Tsang offered HK$33 billion in one-off stimulus measures including tax cuts, roughly the same level he gave out a year earlier. However, total expenditure will include an over 30% boost in social welfare spending, with a focus on the elderly. When making a forecast for the current fiscal year ending March 31, Hong Kong government officials expected to post an HK$3.4 billion budget deficit. Instead, the city will generate a HK$64.9 billion surplus, boosting its cash hoard to HK$734 billion. That means Hong Kong could, in principle, operate for nearly two years without any additional revenue. The surplus is a mixed blessing fo ...
Compared with the embarrassingly handsome HK$64.9 billion Hong Kong budget surplus in 2012, the HK$33 billion package of relief measures delivered by Financial Secretary John Tsang in his 2013-14 budget speech yesterday is markedly modest and restrained.   And set against the background of a mildly worded warning in his speech of the challenges posed by an ageing population, the prudent relief package gives a not-so-subtle message to citizens that some difficult decisions on ways to raise sustainable revenue for services lie ahead.   Faced with enormous pressure to return wealth to the people in view of the massive surplus, Tsang has stuck to his trademark prudent approach by adopting one-off tax reductions and concessions to ease people’s burden.   The 11-item relief package is broadly similar to last year’s basket of measures, albeit with a smaller price tag of HK$33 billion. Last year’s was HK$80 billion.   But unlike the 2012-13 blueprint, the last of the second Donald Tsang administration, ...
