BEC EnviroSeries Conference
November 14 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+8
Hong Kong’s transport system is regarded internationally for its efficiency, reliability and diversity. Over 90% of our daily passenger journeys are completed on a public transport system that features railway as the backbone supported by other modes including buses, minibuses, taxis, ferries and trams. The overall functioning of Hong Kong hinges on the performance of our transport system, and it is therefore the Government’s long-standing strategy to continue investing in road infrastructure and public transport improvement so as to ensure the smooth movement of people and goods.
This Conference aims to (a) envision an urban transport system of tomorrow that would enable a carbon neutral, people-centric and sustainable living environment in Hong Kong, and (b) demonstrate business leadership and identify opportunities in technology and innovation that would contribute to the development of such urban transport system.
