Information and Communications Technology


Information and communications technology (ICT) is not only a key enabler underpinning Hong Kong’s thriving economy, it is also taking shape as an economic sector in its own right. The Hong Kong Smart City Blueprint and its subsequent measures underpin HKSAR Government’s resolution to embrace innovation and technology to build Hong Kong into a world class smart city. Our physical and cultural proximity to Mainland China, our vibrant startup ecosystem and our advancement in smart technologies like IoT, AI, data analytics, provides tremendous potential for Hong Kong to thrive among other competitive economies.
