I did an interview with Dr. Denis Yip 葉成輝, CEO of ASTRI, on the trend, opportunities and challenges for Innovation and Technology industry in the Greater Bay Area a few weeks ago. Here is my post:
The video of the interview is available now. It was taken professionally by the ASTRI team and their production team. You don’t want to miss that out. Thanks again for their support.
Certainly, big thank to the bright mind on the scene Dr. Denis Yip 葉成輝#ASTRI and the master mind behind the scene Professor Andrew Chan#GBABusinessSchool.
As a member of the GS1 HK’s IoT Industry Advisor Council, I am glad to join the 16th Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao IoT Technology Application Summit co-organised by GS1 HK today in 3 locations, mainland, Hong Kong and #Macau, simultaneously.
Appreciate the effort from Anna Lin, Corinna Fung, Julian Sin#GS1HK, Kingsley Wong #OGCIO, Ivan Lam#ASTRI, 龍勝當 #澳門電腦學會，and certainly counterparts in Guangdong. Glad to see many industry experts there as well Andrew Ling, wilson chong, Vincent So, Ir Dr Venus Lun, Harman Ng, Kinsen Lee, Bryan Peng(彭文俊)Alex Chung 鍾孝揚 and many others.
Great to see the collaboration across 3 regions on IoT applications on various industries. To make our Greater Bay Area or GBA work, we need smart money flow (FinTech and RegTech), smart logistics flow (AIOT) and certainly smart information flow (AI and Big Data). All these flows have to be protected by CyberSecurity and Blockchain.
Thanks for Anna’s leadership and her GS1HK team effort. Look forward to having more collaboration in these areas and contributing more in this alliance across the #GreaterBayArea#GBA in 2022 and beyond.
How should we leverage #DigitalTransformation to capture the opportunities in the 80+ million people #GBA market? Glad to have a chance to discuss this theme with influential leaders in Hong Kong. It included
1. Professor Andrew Chan, President of the #GBABusinessSchool
2. Edmond Lai, Chief Digital Officer of #HKPC
3. Andrew Ling, Director of Value Advisory, #SAPHK
Thanks for #SAP and #HKET to organize such a great forum. Appreciate the effort from Sandy Yu, Helen Lam and many other SAP and HKET colleagues.
I also shared my experience as one of the judges for the 2021 Digital Transformation Awards #DinggeAwards #鼎革獎 where I witnessesed and learnt from many innovative and impactful digital transformation real-life cases implemented by enterprises from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The Awards is an annual competition organized by #HarvardBusinessReview, #HBR, #TsinghuaUniversity and #SAP. Hong Kong started participating this competition first time in 2021.
Here is the article from HKET which summarized the key takeaways.
#CUHKEMBA #CUHKMBA #CUHKAPIB
#GBA (80+ million people in 11 cities of South China) and #ASEAN (650+ million people in 10 countries of SE Asia) are the two biggest and rapidly growing markets nearby Hong Kong. Enterprises, #SMEs and #Startups in Hong Kong are finding ways to seize these unprecedented opportunities for them.
Today, I was so grateful to have experts on GBA and ASEAN to share their experience in 2 consecutive forums. I moderated one forum on GBA in #SunLife in the morning and moderated another forum on ASEAN in #HKPC in the afternoon.
Appreciate King Leung #InvestHK, Peter Mok #HKSTP, Jennifer Tan #AntGroup, Keith Ip #SFExpress, Dick Fong and Thomson Ho #10Life to share their experience on the ecosystem collaboration in GBA.
Thanks Joseph Chan #AsiaPay, Stanley Sy CCRA #Sanomics, wun chi lam #Spaceship, Sunny Chau #HKTDC, Gary Lam #AsiaCEOCommunity and Sunny Chow from Leading Star Vietnam to share about their market entry strategy to ASEAN, consumer behaviors, partnership models and talents management for ASEAN markets.
Heartfelt thank to Clement Lam, Cynthia Sit, and Alice Chuck #SunLife, Karen F. Marius Chow #HKPC and my #CUHK teammates to make these 2 forums a successful learning opportunity for everyone.
I believe Hong Kong can reach another peak in the next 5 to 10 years by leveraging on #innovation, #entrepreneurship #intrapreneurship and #technology to capture the arising opportunities in GBA and ASEAN. Creating synergy through the collaboration of two regions is critical for our success. That is what I have been working on as well. Let’s add oil 大家加油!
Really grateful to have an opportunity to discuss with GBA and digitalization experts in Hong Kong as well as mainland China. Thanks for #SAP #HKET #HKPC #GBABusinessSchool jointly organized it.
In particular, I was really pleased that we had my mentoring professor Andrew Chan, the President of the #GBA Business School, to share his views on the development of the GBA region.
Then, we had a panel on #DigitalTransformation in the context of the GBA with 2 of my friends. I firstly talked about the key success factors of digital transformation where customer centricity was the key. Andrew Ling from #SAP shared his experience to manage supply chain under uncertainty. Edmond Lai from #HKPC went through a few examples how #SMEs in Hong Kong to leverage on technologies to seize opportunities and manage challenges in these few years including the pandemic time.
Two leading enterprises from the mainland, #Bosch (China) Investment Ltd. and #Terminexus (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. also shared their digital transformation experience. They were the winners of the Digital Transformation Awards #鼎革獎。
The award aims to encourage companies in the mainland and Hong Kong to learn from each other on their digital transformation journey.
