Fake eggs on hi-tech menu to tempt mainland partners

Artificial eggs and biodegradable packaging are two of the seven hi-tech products Hong Kong’s Li Ka-shing Foundation is showcasing in a mainland roadshow to drum up interest from potential regional partners, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported Wednesday, citing Wen Wei Po.

The projects are part of an exhibition that opened in Beijing Monday and will travel to Xi’an, Suzhou, Guangzhou, Zhengzhou and Jinan over the next week, the report said.

Foundation director Solina Chau Hoi-shuen said the hi-tech products are aimed at solving problems in wealth inequality, food and water safety, as well as credit quality on the mainland. They include new technological takes on LED light bulbs, water sewage treatment products and individual credit ratings.

The roadshow is a partnership with the State Council’s Development Research Center. Organizers hope to find local partners to commercialize the products and help drive regional growth.
