Smart City Series: \How do Hong Kong's regulations promote or impede innovation?
12:00-1:45pm. From the creation of a dedicated Information and Technology Bureau to the focused attention given to the development of innovation during the 2015 Chief Executive's policy address, recent years have seen a series of initiatives taken by the Hong Kong Government to ensure that Hong Kong becomes a regional hub for innovation and technology. The 'Innovation in Hong Kong" series seeks to take a closer look at how innovation and technology in Hong Kong has evolved over the years, how businesses have diversified due to the launch of government initiatives, and what challenges still lie ahead.
The first of many series discussions, this inaugural panel series will take a deep dive into how current regulations in Hong Kong have promoted or impeded the drive towards innovation and disruptive technology. Panel speakers will provide their expert opinions and first-hand experiences on how they have (or not have) leveraged the current regulatory system to launch new products, and what trials they foresee in the coming years for businesses in Hong Kong. First 15-20 minutes is for networking Sandwiches & beverages included Hosted by the Information & Communications Technology Committee
