Message

In the year of 2018 mega projects - high speed railway opened on 23 Sept 18 and HK- Zhuhai - Macau Bridge opening on 23 Oct 18 for which the HK Construction Industry are extremely proud following all the hard work of the past six to seven years. However, recent scandals related to couplers, rebar and concrete and insufficient funding of contractors raised the alarm for each stake holder in the industry on major issues such as quality , supply chain management , security of payment causing the need for a complete review of our current contracting systems.

LEGCO approved the budget in this fiscal year as high as HKD 170B which will continue for the next couple of years. At the same time we were reminded of the important need for training high quality skilled workers.

In Government we have the 2030 planning vision. However, in 2014 15% of the population will be 65 years and over with the further data indicating a rise to 16 % in 2017 and 23 % -24% by 2026 with this demographic impact hitting labour availability in market and a labour shortage ranging from 5000 -10,000 workers daily against an active daily number of workers of around 120,000 which will impact on both quality and productivity. The labour shortage will be serious problem in 1 - 2 year's time causing a great impact on the construction industry once the future major projects have commenced such as the stadium , AA T2 & T3 , hospitals , 460,000 residential flats demand etc.

Labour importation is a very sensitive in HK so, to mitigate this constraint we must implement off site fabrication, modularisation and digital management. In particular the MEP sector, we promote the innovation by the digital management, prefabrication and modularization in order to manage quality and labour impact but we need the support from Government to fund both innovation and allocate land for modular factory set ups to make this dream a reality.

In the coming one year, we shall continue to organise networking dinners with different Departments under HKSAR Development Bureau and other quasi Government organisations in order to promote the image of EMCA, transparency between each stakeholders and direct voice from industry.

With this opportunity, I would like express my sincere thanks to all of the Members support over the last year and look forward to continue working and build a successful year in 2019.
