Appointments to Board of Directors of Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation
     The Government today (June 28) announced that the Financial Secretary has appointed a new member to the Board of Directors of the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTPC), and re-appointed three incumbent members.
     Ms Angel Ng has been appointed as a new board member of the HKSTPC for a period of two years from July 1, 2019.
     Ms Cordelia Chung, Mr Kent Ho and Dr Kim Mak have been re-appointed as board members of the HKSTPC for a period of two years with effect from the same date.
     The Secretary for Innovation and Technology, Mr Nicholas W Yang, said, "The Science Park is the innovation and technology (I&T) flagship in Hong Kong. Under the guidance of the Board of Directors, the HKSTPC has been actively developing relevant infrastructure and facilities, providing comprehensive support for technology companies and start-ups, and supporting the Government's re-industrialisation policy. The Corporation plays an indispensable role in Hong Kong's I&T development. Also, with the additional funding of $10 billion from the Government last year, the HKSTPC has progressively launched a number of new initiatives to enhance the infrastructure in the Science Park and strengthen support for its tenants and incubatees. We are confident that with their devotion and extensive experience and knowledge, members of the Board will continue to guide the Corporation to further enhance Hong Kong's position as the I&T hub in the region."
     The term of an incumbent board member, Mr Raymond Cheng, will expire on June 30 this year.
     "In the past six years, Mr Cheng has actively participated in the work of the Board and has made valuable contribution to the Corporation and the local I&T development. The achievements of the Corporation are due in no small measure to his guidance and wise counsel," Mr Yang said.
     The HKSTPC, which began operation in 2001, manages the Hong Kong Science Park, three industrial estates and the InnoCentre. It provides a comprehensive range of services to cater for the needs of industry at various stages, including nurturing technology start-ups through its incubation programmes, providing facilities and services for applied research and development activities, and providing land and relevant facilities for production.
