Dear Mr Ng,
Development of Innovation and Technology, and Re-industrialisation in Hong Kong
The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce is grateful for the opportunity to share our views on creating an environment in Hong Kong that facilitates innovation, digital transformation, and re-industrialisation.
Although it is unclear what the post-Covid world will look like, it is obvious that the pandemic has had a disruptive effect across all sectors and has accelerated technology trends as communities find ways fight the outbreak while maintaining critical services. As Hong Kong contemplates how to become more resilient, we believe that the government should actively pursue a policy of nurturing innovation and technology, whether as an enabler for other commercial and industrial activities or as an industry in its own right.
In the above regard, please find attached our thoughts on what should be done to progress innovation and technology development and re-industrialization in Hong Kong.
