廉政建設 迫在眉睫

美國傳統基金會發表2019年全球經濟自由度指數報告,澳門排名34。這些排名一直沒太多人關注,今次不同的是,報告提到澳門特區政府的廉潔程度,由去年36.4分,跌至今年33.2分,比內地49.1分還要低。

下任特首 任重道遠

2019年澳門回歸20週年,也是關鍵選舉年,將迎來第三位特首,估領袖遊戲漸入高潮。到底新特首需具備什麼特別能力,最重要解決什麼問題?以現況觀之,不論誰當新特首,最重要有改革的決心及能力,革除特區政府20年積累下來的陳規陋習,實行大換血,從新上路。

商訊 | 時事評論 – 重覆又重覆

11月的澳門,聚焦特首崔世安發表2019年施政報告,這是他十年任期最後一份完整的施政報告。結果一如往常,只將幾年來的報告修修改改,翻叮又翻叮,對公屋、交通、醫療等重點,冇願景、冇政策、冇晒符。難怪市民戲言,2019只有“70周年國慶”、“回歸20周年”的雙慶活動,至於世界旅遊休閒中心、中葡平台、大灣區、一帶一路、宜居城市、經濟適度多元、特色金融、5大長效機制等,社會早已麻木甚至反感,澳門需要一個實幹政府,唔好一味靠吹及口號。施政答問、辯論議題重覆又重覆,乏善可陳,反倒有3個爭議值得關注。

基建三無工程誤社會

基建是不同時期各地政府都高度重視的領域,近年中、港、澳樂此不疲,大型項目一個接一個,冀成經濟亮點及增長點。然而,不同地區的發展結構、階段不同,基建不是萬靈藥,建得其所才具社會效益,否則只放煙花變大白象,澳門教訓不少。

撥亂返正

輕軌工程剪不斷、理還亂,審計署九月中發佈輕軌工程第四份審計報告,揭示短、中、長期的計劃及估算,500億未封頂;澳門線無了期,單氹仔線通車效益低下;運建辦長期逃避交代整體計劃詳情、造價,傾向以“邊做邊改”、“判給後才公佈造價”的方式,營造“沒有超支”的表面現象;其辦事不力是工程延誤其中主因等,劣政如此不叫人意外
