Innovation & Technology – Hong Kong • An emerging tech hub
Hong Kong is rapidly emerging as a regional tech hub.
Key IT infrastructure includes Hong Kong Science Park and Cyberport.
Hong Kong Science Park aims to transform Hong Kong into the regional hub for innovation and technology development. Home to 600 technology companies and about 13 000 technology talents, Science Park is a complete ecosystem that connects stakeholders, nurtures talent, facilitates collaboration, and drives innovation for commercialisation. Two new R&D-fit office buildings, providing about 74 000 square metres more space, is expected to be completed in 2020.
A leading information and communication technology hub in the Asia-Pacific region, Cyberport is a creative digital community of over 900 digital tech companies engaged in various forms of digital technology, such as FinTech, eCommerce, IoT/Wearables and Big Data/Artificial Intelligence.
In a joint project between Hong Kong and neighbouring city Shenzhen, the Lok Ma Chau Loop in northeastern Hong Kong will be developed into the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park. The 87-hectare site, which will be the largest innovation and technology platform in Hong Kong, is expected to attract top enterprises, R&D institutions and higher education institutions from around the world. When fully developed, the park is expected to accommodate a working/student population of 50 000 to 53 000.
