Hong Kong will have an interim chief information officer in place this week to lead the city's information technology development initiatives.
A new Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (GCIO) will be formed on Thursday, following the merger of the Information Technology Services Department (ITSD) and the IT-related divisions in the Commerce, Industry and Technology Bureau's communications and technology branch.
ITSD director Alan Wong Chi-kong will be interim chief information officer while the government embarks on a global search to fill the post.
