HONG KONG and Guangzhou will foster collaboration between their software sectors, said Charles Mok, president of Hong Kong Information Technology Federation (HKITF), on Thursday.
At a news briefing on a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed on Oct 28 by the HKITF and the Guangzhou Tianhe Software Park, Mok said under the MoU, the HKITF and the Tianhe Software Park will co-develop and launch a joint database service, organise software development forums, trade fairs, technical seminars and training.
The two sides will also launch a newsletter to facilitate information exchange and business partnership.
Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) will provide technical support in establishing an information-sharing platform linking Hong Kong and Guangzhou software sectors, based on the on-line IT Solution Directory jointly developed by the HKITF and the HKPC.
W.C. Keung, director of information technology and services in the HKPC, said the IT Solution Directory will be linked with the Guangzhou Software Enterprise Resources Network developed by the Tianhe Software Park.
Through the channel, IT solutions from more than 1,000 services providers in Hong Kong will be promoted to potential customers in the mainland, while Hong Kong companies will have access to the partnership opportunities offered by their mainland counterparts, said Keung.
With partners from the HKPC, the Tianhe Software Park and the government of the Guangzhou municipality, the collaboration will integrate the IT resources in the Pearl River Delta, strengthening our competitiveness in the international market, Mok said. China Daily
