The next government is about to take office, and the name of the current innovation and technology director, Xue Yongheng, is not on the list of key officials. Before the government announced the list this morning (19th), he said on a radio program that he was very grateful for the opportunity to serve the public, and described his public career in the past 38 years as a “magical journey”, but he did not directly respond to the work arrangements after the change of government.
Xue Yongheng said that in the past 20 years, Hong Kong has concentrated on the development of traditional industries, but has not provided support to universities with strong scientific research strength, so that scientific research results have not been converted into commercial products. He also said that the current government has invested a total of 150 billion yuan in the development of innovation and technology, which is unprecedented, and he believes that the next government will continue to promote innovation and technology.
Under the new pneumonia epidemic, Xue Yongheng believes that the development of innovation and technology is very helpful to fight the epidemic, such as the “Safe Travel” application, appointment of new crown vaccine, etc., and the electronic bracelet and sewage monitoring system used in “foreign defense import”, etc. unique to Hong Kong.
