Business Matching 2022

In collaboration with the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation and the Cyberport, we have identified a number of I&T solutions offered by technology ventures pertinent to the wider digitisation of government services. In this connection, a series of online business matching sessions customised for the needs of bureaux and departments under the "Be the Smart Regulator Programme" were conducted in February and March 2022, attracting over 580 participants from 28 bureaux and departments joining the event to keep abreast of the latest I&T solutions in the market that may be adopted to enhance the delivery of public services.

I&T Solution Day 2021

Co-organised by the Efficiency Office and the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation, the I&T Solution Day 2021 aimed to introduce and demonstrate to bureaux/departments various market-ready I&T solutions, and showcase advanced technologies and their potential applications to enhance public service delivery. Innovation leaders from the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department and the Immigration Department also shared their valuable experience and insights on the implementation of e-initiatives and the journey of digital transformation.
