香港工程師學會論壇—明日大嶼願景 The HKIE Forum on Lantau Tomorrow Vision

(香港,二零一九年一月十七日) 香港工程師學會 (下稱「學會」) 於一月十五日假香港理工大學舉辦「香港工程師學會論壇—明日大嶼願景」。是次論壇目的讓會員對政府提出的明日大嶼願景加深了解,及提供平台就相關工程議題作意見交流。

 

學會會長余錫萬工程師致辭時,強調多年來香港的發展均有賴填海,工程界對填海有豐富的經驗,並鼓勵工程師應更積極參與建設香港的未來,利用專業知識及先進工程技術幫助開發新土地,造福市民。余會長表示:「學會一直倡議香港的發展應以提升市民生活質素及促進經濟和社會的可持續發展為目標。」

 

論壇邀得香港特別行政區政府發展局局長黃偉綸先生及香港特別行政區政府土木工程拓展署可持續大嶼辦事處副處長(工務)汪志成工程師介紹明日大嶼願景。

 

論壇的問答環節由學會副會長鍾國輝工程師主持,參加者踴躍討論這項擬議的大型項目在選址研究、工程、人才培育及填海物料資源等方面的各種機遇和挑戰。討論中特別提到現時工程界的人力供求差距已逐漸收窄,但仍鼓勵年青人投身業界,參與香港的發展。

 

論壇吸引了約二百名學會會員參加,反應熱烈。會長認為透過是次論壇,有助促進專業見解和知識的交流,亦加深了會員對明日大嶼願景的認識,及工程師在此擔當的角色及可作出的貢獻。

(17 January 2019, Hong Kong) The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) organised The HKIE Forum on Lantau Tomorrow Vision at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University on 15 January 2019. The Forum aimed at facilitating an in-depth understanding of the Lantau Tomorrow Vision promulgated by the Administration among members, and to provide a platform for exchange views on various issues/concern related to the engineering profession in Hong Kong.

 

The Forum commenced with an opening remarks given by Ir Ringo Yu Shek-man, President of the HKIE. In his speech, Ir Yu emphasised that reclamation has played a significant role in the development of Hong Kong, and that the engineering industry has substantial experience in reclamation projects. Ir Yu further encouraged engineers to be more proactively engaged in the planning of the future of Hong Kong, and exploit their expertise and employ modern engineering technology to tackle various challenges in creating new land for the benefit of the society of Hong Kong. “The Institution always advocates for developing Hong Kong under the overriding aims of enhancing the living quality and livelihood of the citizens as well as facilitating sustainable development for our economy and society,” Ir Yu added.

 

Mr Michael Wong Wai-lun, Secretary for Development of the HKSAR Government, and Ir Janson Wong Chi-sing, Deputy Head of the Sustainable Lantau Office (Works) of the Civil Engineering and Development Department of the HKSAR Government, gave presentations on Lantau Tomorrow Vision.

 

A question-and-answer session was moderated by Ir Edwin Chung Kwok-fai, Vice President of the HKIE, during which the participants discussed the various challenges and opportunities in different aspects such as the site selection study, engineering technology, talent development and sources of reclamation material of the proposed megaproject. It was highlighted that the manpower shortage of the engineering industry has been gradually alleviated; nevertheless, youngsters are encouraged to join the sector and take part in pathing the development of Hong Kong. Valuable exchange of ideas and knowledge was facilitated.

 

The Forum was well-attended by some 200 members of the Institution with overwhelming responses. Through the Forum, President Ir Yu considered it a valuable opportunity for members to exchange ideas and knowledge on the topic, and to gain more holistic understanding of the Vision as well as their roles and contributions as engineers in the project.
