Innovation and Technology
Innovation and technology (I&T) development can inject new impetus into the economy, improve people’s quality of life and create quality jobs for young people. The Greater Bay Area development brings valuable opportunities to Hong Kong's I&T development. Leveraging on its advantages in technological research and development (R&D), internationalisation and its status as an international finance centre, Hong Kong can pool together innovation resources from the Greater Bay Area and the world to promote R&D on I&T, and boost our competitiveness.
There are 16 State Key Laboratories and six Hong Kong Branches of Chinese National Engineering Research Centres undertaking research on diverse technology areas. Moreover, top overseas scientific research institutions have also established their presence in Hong Kong, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's first overseas innovation node and the Swedish Karolinska Institutet's first overseas research centre.
