Members of the Legislative Council are being consulted on the "Budget". Legislative Council member Ng Kit-chung has submitted a proposal to Financial Secretary Paul Chan, focusing on "post-epidemic reconstruction" and proposing a "digital nomad visa" to attract talents from all over the world to set up companies in Hong Kong.
Wu Jiezhuang suggested the implementation of "e-Residency" and the establishment of "Digital Nomad Visa".
E-citizens can set up companies in Hong Kong and work remotely
Wu Jiezhuang submitted written comments to Chen Maobo, suggesting the implementation of the "e-Residency Program" (e-Residency) and the establishment of a "Digital Nomad Visa" (Digital Nomad Visa) to attract foreigners and enterprises to Hong Kong.
e-citizenship owners can conduct business activities in Hong Kong, including opening bank accounts, transferring funds, registering companies, and filing tax returns for companies.
Digital nomads can cooperate with e-citizenship to encourage foreign professionals to "stay in Hong Kong" and work remotely.
He said that these two measures can strengthen the image of Hong Kong's e-government, help the economy recover, and increase treasury revenue in the long run.
After checking the information, Estonia, a Baltic country with rapid development of digitization in recent years, will also set up a digital herdsman visa in 2020. After establishing a business in Estonia, applicants can work remotely, especially suitable for Internet marketing, digital engineers and other IT-related industries. It is an important measure for the country to attract global scientific and technological talents and promote the development of the industry in recent years.
In order to attract industries and talents to stay in Hong Kong, Wu Jiezhuang also suggested increasing entrepreneurship and investment funds for specific industries and providing tax incentives, and qualified talents can also shorten the time for obtaining Hong Kong permanent resident status.
As for the gaming taxation that many people have discussed recently, Wu Jiezhuang wants to expand the sports events that allow betting, such as basketball and racing, and can also study increasing the number of days for horse racing and Mark Six lottery.
A large number of tourist buses have been suspended due to the epidemic. After customs clearance, they need to be tested and repaired before they can be used to carry passengers again.

Consumption vouchers not less than 5,000 yuan call for subsidies for industries related to customs clearance
The society pays attention to the amount of consumer vouchers, and Wu Jiezhuang believes that no less than 5,000 yuan of electronic consumer vouchers can be distributed under the balance of the warehouse and the living conditions of citizens.
In addition, in order to attract tourists to Hong Kong, we can also consider conditionally distributing consumption vouchers to tourists. If you spend over 1,000 yuan, you will get 100 yuan to encourage tourists to increase consumption.
Hong Kong is gradually clearing customs. Wu Jiezhuang called for support to relevant industries, such as setting up a customs clearance recovery fund, providing a one-off subsidy to the coach industry, and assisting in the resumption of maintenance and testing before driving.
In terms of other people's livelihood policies, he also suggested reducing the salary tax and personal assessment tax ceiling by 20,000 yuan, waiving the monthly cap of 1,500 yuan per household, granting various government assistance subsidies for one more month, and electricity subsidy of 2,000 yuan Wait.
