BEC EnviroSeries Conference Nov 2019

BEC EnviroSeries Conference: Urban Transport of Tomorrow: Policies, People and Business Opportunities

Hong Kong’s transport system is regarded internationally for its efficiency, reliability and diversity. Over 90% of our daily passenger journeys are completed on a public transport system that features railway as the backbone supported by other modes including buses, minibuses, taxis, ferries and trams. The overall functioning of Hong Kong hinges on the performance of our transport system, and it is therefore the Government’s long-standing strategy to continue investing in road infrastructure and public transport improvement so as to ensure the smooth movement of people and goods.

Despite this competitive edge that Hong Kong currently holds, more needs to be done given the challenges we face. Unchecked growth of vehicle numbers and mileage, unsustainable expansion of the urban landscape, and over-reliance on fossil fuel to power our vehicles have led to alarming issues such as traffic congestion, roadside air and noise pollution, carbon emissions, traffic accidents, the loss of open space for people, and more. As Hong Kong embarks on a decarbonisation journey with the transport sector being an important part of it, now is the opportunity to re-think and re-engineer a transport system that delivers Hong Kong’s vision as a smart, sustainable, and resilient city: one that is low-carbon, people-centric, futuristic, while remaining efficient, reliable, safe and affordable.

This Conference aims to (a) envision an urban transport system of tomorrow that would enable a carbon neutral, people-centric and sustainable living environment in Hong Kong, and (b) demonstrate business leadership and identify opportunities in technology and innovation that would contribute to the development of such urban transport system.
