Hong Kong’s technology boom in the past few years created a surge in demand for talents. Mr. John Lee, Chief Executive of Hong Kong, is about to release “bold measures” to solve the problem of talent shortage. In addition, the policy is also expected to ease access to the Greater Bay Area (GBA) for Hong Kong businesses.
Roborn is one of the first Hong Kong companies to register in the GBA. Winning awards at competitions in mainland China has helped the company gain a foothold in the larger China market, as well as insights into the strengths, policies, and opportunities in different cities.
“Every city has different policies and different subsidies.” said Mark Mak, co-founder and CTO of Roborn. By leveraging the strength, Roborn has set up offices in cities including Dongguan, Guangzhou, Jiangmen in the GBA to better integrate resources and expand.
One of the biggest challenges across the Hong Kong-Guangdong border is logistics. “If there could be support from the government in logistics for tech companies like us, that would be perfect.” Roborn believes that with the help of the policies, we will be able to further expand and develop to better support Hong Kong to become international innovation and technology hub.
