Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor recently issued a policy address, suggesting that the "Shenzhen-Hong Kong Science and Technology Innovation Cooperation Zone" co-operated by the governments of Hong Kong and Shenzhen, before the opening of the cooperation zone, the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park Corporation will rent part of the Shenzhen Futian Science and Technology Park for Hong Kong. Science and technology enterprises settle down as soon as possible.

However, in terms of local support, apart from spending 2 billion yuan for universities to attract overseas innovation and technology teams, there are not many new measures.

Li Zhiwei, the chairman of the local technology enterprise group "Kopei Network", said that the technology park company has more experience in managing innovation and technology parks, which makes people more confident. At the same time, he hopes that the park can provide assistance to science and technology enterprises that are not familiar with the mainland situation and simplify the procedures for starting companies. .

As for talents in innovation and technology, he believes that the government can also attract mid-stream professionals in addition to attracting upstream talents to join local universities, otherwise it may attract talents from companies.

Li Zhiwei said that he noticed that Shenzhen itself has large and small incubators, each with a focus on industries, but the supporting facilities may not be sufficient.

The Science Park Company has more experience in the management of innovation parks, which can give people confidence.

He also pointed out that many companies that want to explore the Greater Bay Area market will be discouraged by the differences in the systems of the two places. For example, when setting up a company in the Mainland, it will be difficult to obtain documents and stamps from different government departments at first.

He hopes that the park can assist science and technology enterprises that are not familiar with the situation in the Mainland to solve such substantive problems.

It has been pointed out that the innovation and technology policy in this year’s policy address is too focused on Shenzhen. Li Zhiwei believes that entrepreneurs are generally willing to open up new markets depending on their business.

He took the company that provides AI object recognition services as an example. Its business includes counting the flow of people in shopping malls. The local market has only hundreds of malls at most. In contrast, the mainland will be a larger market.

He believes that if you want to obtain projects or financing from the mainland market, settle in the mainland can facilitate the negotiation process, because it is difficult to negotiate business in remote or video conferences. He also cited the case of discussing projects with mainland real estate groups before the epidemic, but due to the epidemic There is no way to interview and it is difficult to advance.

2 billion to help universities hire scientific research teams, science and technology enterprises worry about absorbing the company's talents

The policy address also proposed to spend 2 billion yuan to launch the five-year "Outstanding Innovative Talents Program" for local universities to hire overseas scientific research teams.

Li Zhiwei believes that the plan can attract more innovation and technology talents to Hong Kong in the long run. However, he pointed out that industry professionals are also in short supply. He suggests that the government introduce policies to help the industry attract needed professionals to join the "big pie", otherwise It may "absorb the talents of the company" or even increase labor costs, causing innovation and technology companies to move to other places to find talents.
