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

好大喜功

2017年8月23日,特大颱風天鴿肆虐澳門,奪走了10條人命,200多人受傷,滿目瘡痍,斷水斷電斷網絡,小城變廢墟,慘況歴歴在目。

病入膏肓

暑假的澳門熱火朝天,政壇同樣火爆,政治事件浪接浪,單七月,便鬧出貿促局投資移民變相濫發身份證,非凡2億公帑債務凍過水,輕軌車廠判給計錯分要重批,巴士公司合同秘而不宣續約15個月,火葬場、危險品臨時倉庫選址惹爭議,加上逸園狗場結業所引發的格力犬安置鬧劇,無一不叫澳人擰頭。

杜絕惡的根源

澳門違規的士越趨猖獗,澳人怨聲載道,最近臭名遠播,接二連三爆出性騷擾、禁錮及勒索乘客等惡行,受害的台灣小姐冠軍、香港一家四口等事件上了網,澳門形象插水未止。正在立法會細則性審議,俗稱“的士規章”的《輕型出租汽車客運法律制度》法案,無疑可解決部分違規問題,但核心的發牌、競投制度不改,必將留尾巴,須有如網約的等新的開放制度,方可解除核心困局。

商訊 April | 極限服務 – 穿梭於澳門街頭

“他們誤解我們了。”一位年輕的的士司機稱,“並非全部人都是壞人。”

商訊 March | 旅業不重質  怨聲載道 

澳門多年前定位為世界休閒旅遊中心,單從旅客數字,澳門確是世界第一博彩中心,但距“國際”長路漫漫,離“休閒”更似越來越遠。澳門旅遊面對諸多問題,政府多年未有應對之道,早前統計局數據顯示,旅客對大部分酒店服務及設施、旅行社及博彩服務等旅遊業相關服務的滿意度均下跌,紅燈已亮,須對症下藥。 

商訊 Feb | 政府政策 藥石亂投

踏入2018年的頭兩個月,澳門已處多事之秋,政府施政有叫社會摸不著頭腦,也有怨聲載道。

商訊 Jan | 風光表面

2018將是艱難年頭,經濟範疇有兩大焦點,一是賭收會否迎來又一波高速增長期;樓價再創高峰還是回落;兩樣都是結構性的複雜問題,現階段看不到政府有何解困靈藥。
