Ms Sophia Chong – Assistant Executive Director of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), along with Mr Daniel Lam – Senior Exhibitions Manager and Ms Maggie Cheung – Manager of Exhibition Department, visited ASTRI on 26 July 2018. They were welcomed to ASTRI by Mr Hugh Chow – Chief Executive Officer and Dr Meikei Ieong – Chief Technology Officer. During the visit, the HKTDC delegation was briefed about ASTRI’s various R&D initiatives. The two parties also explored future cooperation opportunities.
With the strong support from the HKSAR Government as well as the Central Government, Hong Kong is actively developing into an international hub for Innovation and Technology (I&T). This development is aligned with the long-term development strategy of the city, and for the Great Bay Area of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao. ASTRI and HKTDC share the common goal to help enhance the competitiveness of industries and to promote Hong Kong’s economic development. The two organisations look forward to closer cooperation in the future including exhibitions and promotional activities, in order to create more development opportunities for Hong Kong’s I&T ecosystem.
