This is the second time that HKSTP has succeeded in winning the “Directors Of The Year Awards” since 2012 and I send my heartfelt thanks to all our board members, especially the two award-winning senior board members, for their dedication and leadership in spearheading Hong Kong’s I&T development despite their busy schedules. It is a privilege for me to continue leading our team in promoting the I&T development of Hong Kong.”
