Press Advisory – Relaxing of Restrictions on the Issuance of Passenger Licenses for Private Cars


The recent arrests of Uber staff and drivers have shown that the Hong Kong government neglects the welfare of passengers and drivers who do not operate traditional taxis. The Lion Rock Institute believes that the issuing of passenger licenses for private cars ought to be reformed to become fairer and more objective, without numerical limits to meet customers’ demand.

In view of this, the Lion Rock Institute will hold a press conference and submit a petition to the government. Results of an opinion poll on satisfaction of taxis service in Hong Kong will also be released.

When: 11:00am, Sunday, 16th August 2015

Venue: Entrance of Central Government Complex East Wing, 2 Tim Mei Avenue, Admiralty, Tamar, Hong Kong (See map on next page)

Speakers: Andrew Shuen Pak-man, Co-founder and Interim Executive Director of The Lion Rock Institute
