A New Chapter for Hong Kong Construction

Supported by the Construction Industry Group

 

Speaker:

Ir John Kwong, JP, Head of Project Strategy and Governance Office, Development Bureau, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region


A New Chapter for Hong Kong Construction

The Government’s annual capital works expenditure will exceed HK$100 billion over the next few years, and Hong Kong’s overall construction volume will soar to some HK$300 billion a year. To meet the opportunities and challenges ahead, the Government is taking a proactive role in collaborating and working closely with the whole supply chain, with the aim to uplift the productivity, sustainability and safety of the construction industry.

In this breakfast briefing, John will share the relevant initiatives under the 2023-24 Budget (to be delivered on 22 February 2023) and how the industry and its supply chains could contribute and take advantage of the great opportunities on the horizon.
