Updated at 1.59pm: Hong Kong had to find new ways to generate economic growth, Federation of Hong Kong Industries (FHKI) chairman Kenneth Ting told Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen at a pre-policy address consultation session on Thursday. Federation members offered suggestions to Mr Tsang on economic development and related issues. Mr Ting argued that the government should help Hong Kong?s industries increase their value-added content. It should support two industries, in particular. ?The first one is the ?environmental industry?, which will benefit Hong Kong in many ways, such as [improving] pollution and employment,? explained Mr Ting. ?The government should speed up the construction of the Eco-Park because Hong Kong badly needs this infrastructure to serve as a focal point to attract new investment to this industry.? The second was a car parts industry, which would let Hong Kong benefit from China?s expanding car industry. Mr Ting also said such organisations as the Hong Kong Productivity Council and Vocational Training Council should shift their focus to the Pearl River Delta region. The government should help upgrade the technical and manpower capabilities of Hong Kong companies in this region, he added. Federation members also discussed Hong Kong?s ageing population, its lack of skilled workers in certain areas, technological innovations and cross-border business.
