     The 2016 Hong Kong Awards for Industries (HKAI) is open for entries from today (April 5). Hong Kong companies in the manufacturing and services sectors are invited to join. The closing date is June 3.

     Championed by the Government, the HKAI aims to recognise the outstanding achievements of Hong Kong enterprises in pursuit of high technology and high value-added activities, and to commend excellence in various aspects of their performance.

     Adjudication in each award category is carried out by a preliminary judging panel arranged by individual organisers. A final judging panel, to be chaired by Professor Joseph Sung, will then be convened to decide the winners. Only one grand award will be presented to the most outstanding entry in each category. Other deserving entries will be presented with an award or a certificate of merit. All award winners are entitled to display the official logo of the HKAI and receive the HKAI trophy or certificate as a permanent memento of their achievements.
