I represented HKSTP Quality Startup scheme arranged a meeting with HKQAA and Hong Kong Startup Council in Federation of Hong Kong Industries (FHKI) on 17th Jan 2018. This meeting aimed to continue our study on helping organization (included private and public) to purchase goods from startup under their existing procurement procedure or regulation. It was follow-up actions after our meeting with EMSD and Startmeup on 20th Dec 2017 and 10th Jan 2018, respectively. All participants took a group photo in FHKI hall for memory.

We discussed the following items.
i) Government Procurement for startup – need to have qualified startup list
ii) Research Project on Startup – seek Hong Kong Startup Council to be one of supporting organization.
iii) Cooperation between HKQAA and Hong Kong Q-Mark Council for food product from Mainland China to Hong Kong.
During the meeting, we would like to maximize our resource utilization to help startup and industry development. However, I suggested waiving Hong Kong Startup Council membership fee for incubatees in Science Park and Cyberport.
In afternoon, I had also arranged a lunch meeting with Dr. KS Chin (Associate Professor, SEEM Dept., CityU) with HKQAA team to discuss the submission of Research Project on Startup.
We discussed the roles of HKSQ, HKQAA and CityU, as well as supporting organizations included HKSTP, Cyberport, Hong Kong Startup Council and InvestHK, etc.
