Hong Kong teams bagged a record-breaking total of seven Winner and 13 Merit Awards at the Asia Pacific Information & Communications Technology Alliance (APICTA) Awards 2023, ranking top among 16 participating economies.

An awards presentation ceremony was held today, organised by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) and the Hong Kong Computer Society (HKCS).

This year's APICTA Awards, hosted by Hong Kong for the third time, brought together over 600 leading figures from the information and communications technology (ICT) industry from across the Asia Pacific region.

Over the course of four days of award judging and networking activities, the event promoted collaboration in the region’s ICT sector and gave participants the chance to become familiar with Hong Kong’s innovation and technology (I&T) development.

Secretary for Innovation, Technology & Industry Prof Sun Dong congratulated all the winning teams and applauded their outstanding achievements.

He stressed that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government values the contributions of talent with diverse backgrounds and expertise, and will continue to strive to attract and retaining talent with a view to nurturing an even more vibrant and thriving I&T ecosystem.

The OGCIO and HKCS also hosted “Hong Kong Night” at Cyberport yesterday. The event enabled Hong Kong teams to present their insights, innovative ideas and technology solutions to representatives from other participating economies.

Also yesterday, three networking sessions were arranged to facilitate exchanges among primary, secondary and tertiary students of the member economies and to forge new connections between startups and investors in different places.

Brunei Darussalam has been chosen as the host of the 23rd APICTA Awards next year.
