Navigating the roadmap to a global innovation and technology hub
Three years have passed since the promulgation and implementation of the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Establishing an international science and technology innovation hub with global influence is the most prominent strategy for the development of the Greater Bay Area. Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Guangzhou Science&Technology cluster was ranked the 2nd place among the top 100 list in the Global Innovation Index (GII) 2021 report released by the World Intellectual Property Organization.
Hong Kong, as the global financial and commerce center, is a significant builder of an international scientific and technology innovation hub and will impact the world through technology.
Official data shows that there were over 4,000 local startups in Hong Kong in 2021, and venture capital fund investments increased sharply to over 41.7 billion Hong Kong dollars. In addition, in the World Digital Competitiveness Ranking 2021, Hong Kong was ranked the top in Asia, and its strength in “technology” was rated the first in the world.
TusPark, which stands for Tsinghua University Science Park, is the key platform for technology transfer and business incubation. TusPark Hong Kong is established to create a high-quality startup ecosystem and to encourage the entrepreneurship of technology companies in Hong Kong.
