港大經管學院 著重研究及教育

新冠肺炎打擊全球經濟,香港當然沒有例外,港大經管學院將於12月4日推出「香港經濟前景展望」研討會(Thought Leadership Conference Series),協助香港走出當前困局。香港大學經濟及工商管理學院院長蔡洪濱教授指出,香港經濟需要轉型,由傳統的貿易及金融,轉為知識型經濟。學院在研究及教育層面提升實力,同時與社會及商界緊密互動,培育切合經濟發展的人才,以及因應政策提出建議。

Explore a new economic model for Hong Kong

香港經濟長期以來奉行「自由市場」原則和政府「積極不干預」政策;經貿、金融自由開放,加上低稅率,為特區經常贏得全球最自由經濟體的美譽。「積極不干預」政策延續殖民政府期間經濟管治思維,貨幣政策專注於捍衞聯繫匯率制度,財政政策側重於維持保守的政府開支和盈餘理財。這樣的經濟模式與其傳統的經濟結構(以金融、貿易、物流、旅遊等中介產業為支柱)和經濟形態(低技能低端服務業為主)是匹配的,切合過去整體經濟發展需要,並且創造了繁榮輝煌的歷史里程。

與港大經管院長蔡洪濱對話——港府應該怎樣推動經濟變革?

很多人把「一國兩制」的「五十年不變」,誤解為「資本主義」的「什麼都不變」,以為只要教條地延續自由放任的經濟邏輯和單一固化的經濟結構,不需進行任何改革,就能維持香港輝煌;不料,我們卻因而忽略這一經濟體制的缺陷,甚至捲進意識形態衝突的洪流,不但無法擺脫「變與不變」的糾纏,而且陷入由盛轉衰的困境。
