Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Gregory So, said that the immigration department of Hong Kong is planning to renovate the system of the smart identity card. It is presently holding a study through a consultancy which is expected to be finished by the middle of 2014.

He also stated that during the previous 10 years, more than 11 million smart identity cards have been issued by the Immigration Department. 

The card has a chip embedded into it, whose purpose is to support various applications. The chip has some incorporated data which includes the names of the card holders in English and Chinese, date of issue, date of Birth, ID card number and similar such things. This data can be used by the approved government departments.

Smart card is being used by Hong Kong’s Hospital Authority to serve its project, known as Electronic Patient Record Sharing Pilot.
