This year, despite having impacted many industries in varying degrees, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought new insights and opportunities for innovation and technology. "The epidemic has catalysed evolution and development in enterprises' business models like remote work and remote business operations. It has driven digital transformation of the entire society at the same time," Mr Chan said.

Mr Chan looked forward to seeing more remarkable achievements of local ICT enterprises entering the local, Mainland, as well as overseas markets, thereby creating an innovation and technology atmosphere in Hong Kong and promoting diversity in our economic development.

 

Since its debut in 2006, the Awards has been commending and promoting outstanding local information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications. The Awards encourages and recognises winners' accomplishments and also helps raise their status and reputation in the international market. Among last year's winning entries, a total of six projects also won the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance Awards and two projects won the Global ICT Excellence Awards.

Steered by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer with the collaborative efforts of all Leading Organisers, the Steering Committee, Standards Assurance Sub-Committee, the Grand Judging Panel, judges and supporting organisations, the Hong Kong ICT Awards received overwhelming responses with a record high of over 1,600 entries this year. The Chairman of the Grand Judging Panel, Professor Simon Ho, complimented the entries on their excellence, "I am inspired by the innovative products and solutions of this year's award winners. I believe the successful implementation of their ideas will profoundly benefit businesses and the community, and further promote Hong Kong as a global leading smart city."
