     Commenting on the development of the industry in Hong Kong, Hon Wong Kam Sing, Secretary for the Environment, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government explained: “Green recovery is a global agenda. It has been announced in the Financial Secretary’s Budget, that we are going to launch the long-term decarbonisation strategy, improving air quality, promoting new energy vehicles and a circular economy to reduce waste. Hong Kong is one of the leading cities for decarbonisation in Asia. We are going to launch a new Green Tech Fund to support R&D efforts and business sectors to work on decarbonisation and various green technologies.” He continued to announce that major air pollutants in Hong Kong have been reduced by 30% in the past five years and that the first ever roadmap for electrical vehicles will soon be launched in the city. Lastly, Mr Wong stated that HKD 300 million per year will be invested into the recycling of waste paper, outlining the efforts being made by the HKSAR Government.
     The highly informative Eco Asia Conference will return once again this year. 50 speakers will deliver seven sessions consisting of webinars and online forums at the Intelligence Hub on Autumn Sourcing Week | ONLINE, including presentations from six HKSAR Government departments. Two sessions to note, The Latest Development of Government Projects and The Latest Progress of Environmental Protection Work in the Greater Bay Area, will address the goals and developments of the Hong Kong and wider Greater Bay Area green industries, whilst highlighting the potential for G2B partnerships with exclusive insights from government departments.
