Advocate the constitutional bureau change its name to "Mainland" first
Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor will release the "Policy Address" next month, which is expected to explain the government's restructuring plan.
Members of the DAB Legislative Council Li Huiqiong, Zhang Guojun, and Chen Hengpin held a press conference today (23) and put forward a number of proposals, including the reorganization of the Development Bureau and the Transport and Housing Bureau to "Housing, Planning and Lands Bureau" and "Transport and Works Bureau" After the reorganization, the Housing Department, Buildings Department, and Lands Department will be included in the "Housing, Planning and Lands Bureau"; as for the Transport Department and Highways Department, they will be included in the "Transport and Works Bureau."
The Chairman of the DAB, Li Huiqiong, said that land and housing are the most pressing issues in Hong Kong. It will take longer for two bureaux to deal with it across bureaux. It is hoped that the centralization of one policy bureau can shorten the processing procedures.
The DAB also proposed the establishment of a "Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau" to be responsible for policies on culture, art, tourism and sports. The Tourism Commission, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Radio Television Hong Kong and the Information Services Department will be included in the bureau.
The Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau needs to be renamed the "Mainland and Constitutional Affairs Bureau" in order to strengthen Mainland affairs and to comply with the 14th Five-Year Plan of the country.

Advocate the appointment of Zhang Guojun as the director of the Mainland: non-civil servants may be more suitable candidates
The DAB also suggested that the directors and supervisors of offices in the Mainland and other areas should be appointed in the form of appointment, and the number of candidates should be expanded to non-civil servants.
Vice Chairman Zhang Guojun said that the practice does not preclude the continued use of civil servants as candidates, but he believes that non-civil servants may be more suitable candidates, and emphasized that relevant positions must understand the national, provincial and market conditions.
Carrie Lam has changed shifts twice during her tenure. In June of this year, Li Jiachao was promoted to chief of administrative affairs and Deng Bingqiang was promoted to chief of security.
