My heartiest congratulations to all the winners of the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2020!

Hong Kong’s information and communications technology (ICT) plays a pivotal role in supporting the city’s social and economic development. Advancement in ICT does not only bring innovative solutions to address business and social needs, but also enhances people’s quality of life on a wide range of aspects.

The Hong Kong ICT Awards, since its debut in 2006, have achieved remarkable results in driving ICT advancement. Through this platform, local ICT talents and enterprises showcase their innovative ideas, create ICT solutions and business opportunities, thereby enhancing Hong Kong’s position as an ICT hub and maintaining its competitive advantages in Asia.

I am inspired by the distinguished performance of this year’s award winners. Their works have demonstrated their ability to utilize state-of-the-art technology to develop innovative solutions based on market needs and trends, and also attended to the human dimensions of products and user experience. I believe the successful implementation of the ideas of this year's Hong Kong ICT Awards winners will profoundly benefit businesses and the community, and further promote Hong Kong as a global smart city.
