The construction industry has played a key role in positioning Hong Kong as one of the most dynamic, modern and developed cities in the world. It has been an instrumental driver of economic growth and enabler of social development for many generations. To cope with the staggering demand for housing, land and healthcare services and community infrastructure, we have implemented “Construction 2.0” which advocates “innovation”, “professionalisation” and “revitalisation”, and through which we are leading the industry to enhance its capacity and sustainability, increase productivity, promote regulation and quality assurance, improve site safety and reduce environmental impact. We will also encourage innovative minds and strive to nurture the younger generation, offering them more opportunities to develop their strengths. The Government will pilot “Construction 2.0” in public projects to promote industry enhancement.
