Deploying Resources Efficiently for Hong Kong’s Long-term Development Plans

Hong Kong’s construction volume, including both public and private sectors, is anticipated to hit about HK$300 billion annually in the medium to long term. A number of landmark developments, including the Northern Metropolis and the Kau Yi Chau Artificial Islands, are in the pipeline. In response to massive investment in future infrastructure and urban development, the Government has implemented various projects to use resources smartly and effectively, such as the Project Delivery Capability Programme (PDCP).

The Convocation Ceremony and Welcome Session 2023 of the PDCP was held on 6 March. The first four cohorts of graduates completed the one-year programme and four new cohorts of candidates, including senior professionals from major public organisations, will start their training to jointly take forward Hong Kong’s long-term major development plans.

The PDCP is a major programme of the Centre of Excellence for Major Project Leaders (CoE) under the Development Bureau. It is designed and delivered by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University to provide systematic training for mid-tier managers of public works projects in the Government. The programme aims at enhancing their professional skills and uplifting project delivery capabilities so that they could carry out public works projects more innovatively and with improved leadership skills. As announced in the 2022–23 Budget, the training of the CoE will be extended to stakeholders outside the Government. —Construction+ Online
