Strategic role of Hong Kong on Digital Silk Road

Dr Lee George Lam, Chairman of Board of Directors at Hong Kong Cyberport Management Co., Ltd., provided his insights on the strategic role of Hong Kong at a “Digital Silk Road” City Seminar, held on 11th January.

Dr Lam emphasized Hong Kong’s competitive advantages such as excellent infrastructure, world-class rule of law, “One Country, Two Systems” constitutional framework, free port status, and its simple and low tax regime. These core strengths help the city to position itself as the Digital Silk Road’s “International General Terminal”, “International Data Hub” and “Digital Economy Talents Base” under China's Belt and Road initiative. He argued that Hong Kong can enhance its strategic roles in the region by implementing effective policies to attract top-calibre talents to the city, and upgrading the education system.

Dr Lam has over 30 years of international experience in general management, strategy consulting, corporate governance, direct investment, investment banking and fund management. Dr Lam also serves as a member of the Committee on Innovation, Technology and Re-industrialization of the Government of HKSAR, Honorary Advisor to Hong Kong Business Angel Network, amongst others.
