The challenges facing the implementation of public works projects are not unique to Hong Kong. In the past few years, we have been liaising with authorities in other places, including the Mainland, Australia, Singapore and the United Kingdom, and noted that they have formulated effective measures to tackle challenges. PSGO will draw on relevant practices and experience when devising policies for adoption in Hong Kong for improving the performance of public works projects.
In fact, similar overseas authorities, such as the Centre for Public Project Management (CP2M) in Singapore, the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) in the United Kingdom and the Office of Projects Victoria (OPV) in Australia, have been established to uphold the performance of public works projects in their respective regions. To foster collaboration, we have signed Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with CP2M and IPA. Under the MOU, we will leverage joint government effort to uplift project performance and project delivery capability.
