Hong Kong released its budget plans in CSV format for the first time this year. The full descriptions for spending are still held in PDF format in the 'Budget Speech' documents: http://www.budget.gov.hk/2015/eng/speech.html
Budget commitments are described in terms of policy areas, but there is a document that links policy area to government departments. The expenditure plans in the CSV format do include a fairly detailed breakdown of 'large' projects that includes past and future expenditure.

Election results are available for LegCo under the 3 headings of: Geographical constituencies, District/Functional constituencies and Functional constituencies. Results are displayed in HTML tables, separated over many pages, one for each constituency. Oddly, results seem to be given as total number of votes received for a block of candidates and then indication of which single candidate from that block was elected - rather than breakdown of votes per candidate.
This year I've updated the 'available in bulk' to 'no' because the web form requires a minimum of 300 submissions to extract all the data - as per this ongoing FOI request: https://accessinfo.hk/en/request/collated_air_quality_data
NB: the FOI response is currently asking for a large sum to provide the data in bulk, but I have not altered the 'available for free' setting from 'yes' because in theory, the data is available for free if you are willing to use the web form sufficient times.
Air quality Index data (which is based upon the raw data from air quality monitoring network) is available at: http://www.aqhi.gov.hk/epd/ddata/html/out/24aqhi_Eng.xml
all Pollution are measured except for VOCs
The award information is available at http://www.gldetb.gov.hk/
Digital Topographic Map (B100k-OM) The B100k-OM is a topographic map of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. It shows the key geographical features and is suitable for map applications in 1:100 000 scale. The image for download is geo-referenced to the local coordinate system in Hong Kong 1980 Grid.
Digital Orthophoto Map (DOPM100-L0-OM) The DOPM100-L0-OM is an orthophoto map of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. It is mosaicked from geometrically rectified aerial photographs and constructed for measurement accurate to 1:100 000 scale. The image for download is geo-referenced to the local coordinate system in Hong Kong 1980 Grid. (Remark: The area beyond the Hong Kong territory is produced from Landsat-7 satellite image.)

Only have yearly pdfs and nothing in data.gov.hk from this department yet. These are the 2014-2015 files:
It is not possible to search the registry or view any company data without paying a fee. Details of the fees are made available at: https://www.icris.cr.gov.hk/csci/chargeRate.do
Theoretically this transaction-level spending data should exist since that is how the summarised annual revenue and expenditure reports, found at: http://www.censtatd.gov.hk/hkstat/sub/sp110.jsp can be created.
The Lands Department in Hong Kong is very proprietary of its data. Several FOI requests to other departments (accessinfo.hk) have shown that the Lands Department's strong licensing prevents release of all manner of data.
Boundary information does appear to be recorded and stored in digital format, but not free to access: http://www.landsd.gov.hk/mapping/en/digital_map/mapprod.htm
It is possible for citizens to search a database for details pertaining to very specific plots of land (building number is needed using the 'street search' facility), but this is limited - not finding my entire office block and not providing any information other than the building name for the block of flats I live in. Search facility is here: https://www2.iris.gov.hk/eservices/searchlandregister/search.jsp
postcodes/zipcodes not used so this dataset does not apply. http://futurehandling.com/2012/11/12/why-doesnt-hong-kong-have-postal-codes/ This category discriminates on all the countries and territories that do not have postcodes (>60 https://gist.github.com/kennwilson/3902548). China uses one postcode for all of Hong Kong (999077) so sent a FOI request to see if that was listed anywhere on a HKgov website and if could be used as a postcode for HK. This was the response https://accessinfo.hk/en/request/postal_code_information_for_hong
