Jointly organized by Greater Bay Area Green Finance Alliance (GBAGFA), Green Development Institute (GDI), Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), and supported by HKGFA, The Hong Kong GreenTech Summit 2024 was successfully held on 26 February. As the beginning of the inaugural Hong Kong Green Week, the Summit serves as a platform for stakeholders from local, Mainland China, and abroad to gather insights on advancing green technology in various industries and its potential to reach decarbonisation. 

Mr. Paul Chan, the Financial Secretary of The Hong Kong SAR Government commenced the Hong Kong Green Week with an opening speech. Stating the tremendous potential for green development globally, he also mentioned the unique position and conditions Hong Kong has in becoming a ‘Green Superconnector’, which would gather corporates, capital, and talents from abroad and Mainland China to bring forth new business opportunities and green development potential. 

In his opening speech, Dr. Ma Jun, Chairman and President of HKGFA and Honorary Chairman of GBAGFA, said the crucial role Hong Kong could play in developing green equity investments to support green and low-carbon technology enterprises to establish in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and other Asian regions. Apart from investment support, Dr. Ma pointed out Hong Kong can also pioneer demonstration projects in various sectors and construct a robust ecosystem by promoting incubation, accelerating policies, concessional finance, and innovation use cases to attract green tech enterprises. 

HKGFA is proud to be a supporting organisation of the Hong Kong GreenTech Summit 2024 and will continue focusing on GreenTech development and steering discussion on the role of green finance in GreenTech acceleration in Hong Kong. Our Green Technology, Data & Infrastructure Workstream under the Product Innovation & Solutions Working Group is currently conducting a survey to map the Green Technology landscape in Hong Kong and the GBA, to identify pain points and various financial needs different green tech sectors require to establish in the region.
