Tsang urges HK to develop high value-added manufacturing sector

Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah has called on the city to develop its high value-added manufacturing sector, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported on Monday.

Writing in his blog, Tsang cited the highly efficient tower at the Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate as an example of how we should leverage our advantages to promote the “made in Hong Kong” brand.

He also cited the city’s recent achievements in innovation, including the world’s first engine-equipped surgical robotic arm jointly invented by The University of Hong Kong and The Polytechnic University of Hong Kong.

Locally made musical gear, which received awards at recent Mobile World Congress, also show the city’s talent pool in innovation and technology, Tsang said.

Hong Kong should also turn itself into a platform for Chinese manufacturers, add value to products, and tap its advantages in trade finance and information technology, he added.
