Micro-E Takes The Stage

A tiny semiconductor has a wide range of applications, and with constant advancements in electronic products, such as 5G and wireless network technologies, the microelectronics industry is rapidly developing worldwide.

Hong Kong has great potential for developing the microelectronics industry. However, achieving industrialisation requires not only strategic development but also support in terms of abundant resources, talent, and infrastructure. This support will facilitate the steady development of the microelectronics industry locally and even overseas.

Ir Dr H.L. Yiu, Chief Corporate Development Officer of Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), invited multiple experts from the microelectronics industry to explore the current trend and future prospects of the local microelectronics industry, sharing valuable insights from various perspectives.

EP01: MICRO-E TAKES THE STAGE: POWER PLAY IN THE NEW ERA!

Guest of this episode:
Prof. WONG, Kam Fai
Associate Dean (External Affairs), Faculty of Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
LegCo Member

Ir Dr H.L. Yiu, Chief Corporate Development Officer of Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), invited Professor Kam-fai Wong, a Legislative Council member and Associate Dean (External Affairs) of the Faculty of Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, who has extensive experience in engineering and information technology, to discuss the current trend, future opportunities, and talent needs of the local microelectronics industry.

Professor Wong emphasized the close relationship between microelectronics and daily life, highlighting the vast market opportunities they present. Dr. Yiu noted that start-ups in the past faced several challenges when researching or developing microelectronics technology, such as a lack of laboratory and factory facilities. The upcoming Microelectronics Centre, located in Yuen Long InnoPark and set to launch in 2024, will address these issues effectively.
