Business Environment Council Limited (“BEC”) today organised the inaugural signature event “BEC CEO Dialogue” as one of the key initiatives to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, attracting leaders, professionals and experts from different industries of the business sector to join.
With the theme of “Innovation and Technology on Our Net-Zero Journey for the Next Generation”, Mr Albert Wong, Chief Executive Officer of Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (“HKSTP”), was invited as our honourable guest to exchange views with Mr Kevin O’Brien, Chairman of BEC; and Mr Simon Ng, Chief Executive Officer of BEC, on how innovation and technology facilitates the business community to achieve the net-zero goal for Hong Kong’s prosperity and for the benefits of our next generation.
Giving the opening remarks, Mr O’Brien said, “Innovation and technology, as a catalyst or enabler in the ecosystem, definitely plays a key role along the net-zero journey. We are delighted to have the opportunity to go into more in-depth conversations with Mr Wong to exchange ideas about how to galvanise business actions towards a net-zero Hong Kong through innovation and technology.”
“For the past 20 years, HKSTP has been actively supporting tech ventures and startups at all stages of growth with infrastructure, talent development and investment opportunities. Leveraging the 14th Five-Year Plan of developing Hong Kong, as part of the Greater Bay Area, into an international I&T hub, coupled with the Hong Kong climate action plan 2050, HKSTP will play a key role in local and regional decarbonisation. We will assume a leading role to facilitate the collaboration between government, business and innovators for cross-disciplinary synergies and I&T solutions,” said Mr Albert Wong, CEO of HKSTP.
The fruitful and insightful conversation among the three prominent executives was well received and welcome by the audience who were able to gain useful inspirations for formulating their action plans towards the net-zero goal.
