Developing Testing and Certification Services
87. I will allocate $20 million in the next two years to support the work of the Hong Kong Council for Testing and Certification set up last September, with a view to enhancing the professional standards of the local testing and certification services as well as international recognition, thereby creating more business opportunities. I will also allocate an additional $21 million in the next two years to the Hong Kong Accreditation Service to strengthen services to the industry.
88. The Hong Kong Council for Testing and Certification will shortly submit to the Chief Executive an industry development plan for the coming three years. The plan will make specific recommendations to increase the competitiveness of the industry, step up promotional effort in the Mainland and overseas, strengthen manpower support, and help the industry tap business opportunities in those areas with good potential. I will provide the necessary resources when required.
