The Hong Kong ICT Awards 2020 presentation ceremony was held today to commend and promote outstanding local information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications.
The ICT Awards received overwhelming responses with a record high of over 1,600 entries this year since its debut in 2006.
Financial Secretary Paul Chan presented the Award of the Year to Blutech IoT while Secretary for Innovation & Technology Alfred Sit presented Grand Award trophies to the winners of the eight categories.
Mr Chan said that while the COVID-19 pandemic impacted many industries in varying degrees this year, it also brought new insights and opportunities for innovation and technology.
“The epidemic has catalysed evolution and development in enterprises’ business models like remote work and remote business operations. It has driven digital transformation of the entire society at the same time.”
Mr Chan added that he looks forward to seeing more remarkable achievements of local ICT enterprises entering the local, Mainland and overseas markets to create an innovation and technology atmosphere in Hong Kong and promote diversity in the city’s economic development.
