「機電 • 啟航」為機電業注入新動力
To cope with the long-term development of Hong Kong, the EMSD is committed to recruiting young technicians and enhancing their technical standards by strengthening the training and collaboration of E&M talents in Guangzhou and Hong Kong as well as encouraging trainees to participate in both local and international skills competitions, with a view to providing better quality E&M services to clients and members of the public.
Setting up Guangzhou-Hong Kong E&M Talent Training Bases
Two Hong Kong training bases were particularly set up in the EMSD Headquarters Building, and we invited national team players and experts from the Mainland to conduct joint training with the Hong Kong team in our Refrigeration and Air-conditioning training base for WorldSkills Competition in July. This summer, EMSD trainees were also arranged in batches to study, exchange and share views in four technician colleges under the HRSSGZ in Guangzhou, so that they can accumulate experiences and better equip themselves.
Training Talents for Skills Competitions
This August, our technician, Mr. Chan Yu-tai, and technician trainee, Mr. Kwok Chun-ming, represented Hong Kong to attend the 45th WorldSkills Competition held in Kazan, Russia. They won Medallions for Excellence in the “Electrical Installations” trade and the “Refrigeration and Air-conditioning” trade respectively. They said that participation in international competitions has helped improve their skills and widened their exposure, and they have benefited a great deal from it.
“E&M Go!” Injects New Impetus to the E&M Trade
Our officiating guest, Mr. Matthew Cheung, the Chief Secretary for Administration, said in his welcoming speech that the E&M trade is the basis of various industries and the driving force for the sustainable development of Hong Kong. The Government expects that it will invest more than $1,000 billion in total on infrastructure in the next ten years, of which 40% will be put in the E&M trade, offering lots of opportunities for the trade. Moreover, in recent years, the E&M trade has been rapidly moving towards high-end technology by combining innovation and technology, which helps youngsters unleash their potential and enhance their upward mobility. Mr. Cheung encouraged young, new members of the trade to shine on the road ahead and create their own new world.
