Hong Kong, 6 October 2017 – Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (“HKSTP”) today announces the incorporation of its wholly-owned subsidiary company, the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park Limited (“HK－SZ I&T Ltd”). Pursuant to the “Memorandum of Understanding on Jointly Developing the Lok Ma Chau Loop by Hong Kong and Shenzhen”, the new company is designated to take charge of the construction, operations, maintenance and management of Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park.
HKSTP Chief Executive Officer Albert Wong said, “It is extremely encouraging to see the establishment of the Park which is going to have a profound impact on fostering the development of the innovation and technology ecosystem.
