• RICS leads the discussion of building Hong Kong’s capacity for the future at Annual Conference

    17 April 2015

    RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors)will bring government officials, as well as local and overseas practitioners from broad spectrum of the property industrytogether to explore essential elements in building Hong Kong’s capacities for the future at the RICS Annual Conference 2015 on May 21. Mr. John TSANG Chun Wah, GBM, JP – Financial Secretary of HKSAR will kick start the Conference as the guest of honour, and will discuss the need to increase land supply for housing, Hong Kong’s economy, as well as other needs of the Hong Kong community.  


    RICS will bring together industry experts from across the world to discuss Hong Kong’s key issues at this international Conference. As a tremendously developing, densely populated urban metropolis, Hong Kong continues to face a rising demand for more space. Mrs. Janet Askew, President of Royal Town Planning Institute from the United Kingdom will lead overseas town planners to share their expertise on the urban planning of major global cities. Janet mentions, “London faces huge challenges and pressures for development. Our greatest challenge is to create a sustainable, liveable city for all in a well-designed environment. Hong Kong can take London as a reference in building itself for the future.”

    With the blooming elderly population over the next two decades, Hong Kong’s population strategy will have a shifting focus towards the emerging silver hair market. A panel discussion at the conference will explore how Hong Kong can maintain its competitive edge and remain a world-class future city, despite, or perhaps even with the benefit of an aging population.

    Mr. Andrew Lee, Chairman of RICS Hong Kong says, “RICS Annual Conference 2015 will address priorities in building a sustainable future for Hong Kong. Through in-depth discussion amongst experts in the industry, we aim to produce a framework which will help Hong Kong to build capacity for challenges in the years to come.”

    In furthering Hong Kong’s capacity for sustainable growth and the competitiveness of Hong Kong, RICS will be hosting a career advice session at the Conference. Ambitious young professionals will be able to seize the chance to discover more about the industry from senior business leaders, and to find out more from the recruitment officers of Hong Kong’s top property and real-estate companies.
