President's Message (October 2022)

While my term is counting down, my schedule has been packed: the National Day Celebration Ceremony at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 1 October; the HKIS QS Awards 2022-cum-QSD Annual Dinner 2022 on 23 September; a farewell luncheon for CIC immediate past chairman Mr Chan Ka-kui on 7 October; and in the evening, the HK Institute of BIM's Award 2022.

HKIS Annual Conference
This year more than 600 industry professionals took part in our hybrid conference at the Island Shangri-La on 17 September, a record turn-out. The theme, "Northern Metropolis: A New Era of Hong Kong towards Sustainability, Resilience and Growth", indeed drew the industry's attention. We had government officials, business leaders, industry experts and scholars exploring the strategic planning into and sustainable development of the Northern Metropolis. We had two guests of honour: Financial Secretary Mr Paul Chan Mo-po, who congratulated the HKIS via video message, and Secretary for Development Ms Bernadette Linn Hon-ho, who spoke on stage about the plan for the New Territories boundary. Other speakers added their thoughts and insights, in particular about the possibilities of sustainable development that the metropolis presents.
