Guangzhou and Hong Kong Co-operate in Fostering Electrical and Mechanical Talent Development
The EMSD is committed to training E&M talents for passing on professional skills, with a view to raising the quality of client services and maintenance of E&M assets for customers. Following the signing of the Memorandum of Co-operation on training E&M talents with the Guangzhou Industry and Trade Technician College (GITTC) in June this year, the EMSD signed the Memorandum of Co-operation on E&M Talent Development with the Guangzhou Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau (HRSSGZ) on 6 November to enhance collaboration in the development of E&M talent in both places.
Addressing the signing ceremony, the Director of Electrical and Mechanical Services, Mr. Alfred Sit, said the memorandum will facilitate more in-depth and extensive co-operation in personnel training in the area of refrigeration and air-conditioning, mechatronics, lift maintenance, new energy applications and vehicle maintenance. He also expressed the hope that the professional exchanges will enhance the service quality and standards of the E&M sector and promote sustainable development and energy saving in both Hong Kong and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
This memorandum sets out the common goals and co-operation direction for E&M talent development for the EMSD and the HRSSGZ, and establishes a co-operation framework for the two parties in the next three years. The area of collaboration includes experience-sharing platforms, internship opportunities and training courses on advanced technology development and applications for the E&M sector in Hong Kong and Guangzhou.
More than 100 guests from different departments and institutions in Guangdong and Hong Kong attended the signing ceremony. They are representatives from the GITTC, the Guangzhou Electromechanical Technician College, and the professional bodies and related E&M institutions in Hong Kong.
