Speaker: Raymond Wong, Head of Investment, Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP)

Innovation and technology (I&T) have become increasingly important contributors to economic growth across the globe. Under this framework, inventors and entrepreneurs turn ideas into products and services that benefit society, create job opportunities to bolster economic development, address imminent social issues such as ageing demographics, and develop new economic pillars.

In order for I&T to take root and flourish, an ecosystem comprising such elements as infrastructural and financial support, stable talent pool and sizeable market are important. In recent years, the Hong Kong Government has placed strong emphasis on developing the city's I&T capabilities through a number of policies and funding schemes. Part and parcel of such measures is played by HKSTP, which plays a central role in fostering the next generation of scientific talent and interest in STEM, expanding employment opportunities, enhancing the city's diversified economy, and transforming Hong Kong into the regional hub for innovation and technology development.

The Chamber is pleased to have invited HKSTP's Head of Investment, Raymond Wong, who will provide an overview of I&T developments and applications in Hong Kong, and supportive measures provided by HKSTP to companies across five key technology clusters. He will also share case studies of HKSTP companies and their journeys to achieving success.
