The Budget offered few new measures to boost the ailing economy, in line with the financial secretary's new theme of small government. Mr Leung offered Hong Kong's core industries - financial services, logistics, tourism, producer and professional services and creative and hi-tech industries - encouraging words, saying that they already 'possess a considerable competitive edge' in quality, creativity and speed. He pledged to continue existing government efforts in boosting the economy for these industries. His address focused on the financial services sector which 'must move up the value chain'. He said Hong Kong is 'making strides to become the bond and fund management centre for Asia'. As such, investment banks were welcomed to 'enhance their fixed-income operations in Hong Kong, including secondary trading'. The Mortgage Corporation, Airport Authority, MTRC and KCRC will step up their issue of bonds to help promote a regional bond market. The Securities and Futures Commission will consult industry on the development of real estate investment trusts and the government will make tax proposals to assist the growth of the bond market and the fund management industry. Other sectors also received help. The hi-tech industry won its case for the open-platform wireless technology development centre, and plans for a logistics park on Lantau will be moved forward.
