View EMIL Programme Details

Date: 29 Jun 2016 (Wed)
Time: 6:30 - 8:00 pm
Speaker: Prof. Yesha Sivan

Hosted by Asia’s No. 1 Design School, PolyU’s Executive Master in Innovation Leadership is a high level, high impact interdisciplinary Executive Master programme designed to nurture Innovation Leaders.

"HK 3.0" represents another economic focus for HK: It continues the transformation from trading (HK 0.0) to manufacturing (HK 1.0) to services (HK 2.0). My claim is simple, Hong Kong needs another transformation to maintain its unique edge as a global quality city. Complancency is detrimental when competing with the likes of Shenzhen, South Korea, Singapore, Shanghai, and other players. A specific direction must be found - I believe "innovation" is the next economic focus (HK 3.0).
