The manufacturing sector, such as the electronics industry, has been the major force to drive Hong Kong’s economy for almost half a century and will continue to do so. The HKSAR Government is determined and committed to re-industrialise the sector with start-of-the-art technology and facilities, and the supportive Re-industrialisation Funding Scheme rolled out in 2020.
The Advanced Manufacturing Centre (AMC) and Microelectronics Centre are two distinctive “build-to-fit” models to spearhead the re-industrialisation initiative. Opened in 2022, the AMC is focusing on technological innovation and offering high value-added, low volume, but highly customized production services. Additionally, the center provides comprehensive services such as logistics, warehousing, cleanroom-enabled space, and prototyping. It also features a "ProShop" that offers low-volume assembly and production services, thus enabling Innofacturers to transform their innovative ideas into quality products quickly.
The Microelectronics Centre, on the other hand, will focus on strengthening support for the development and manufacturing of electronics and communications products such as advanced semiconductors, smart sensors, electronics and smart power devices. It will be equipped with dedicated facilities such as high standard super-clean rooms, dangerous goods storage and waste treatment, as well as shared laboratories for testing and certification.
Leveraging the synergies between the re-industrialisation process and Hong Kong’s longstanding status as a global trading and sourcing hub, as well as its proximity to Mainland China, I&T talent in microelectronics, smart sensors, robotics, power electronics and manufacturing software can demonstrate their expertise and strengths to the fullest extent; manufacturers and entrepreneurs can further expand their businesses in Hong Kong and to the Mainland.
