Message from the Secretary for Development

I offer my heartfelt congratulations to the Professional Green Building Council on the successful launch of the 2007 Regional Conferences on Sustainable Building and Construction in Hong Kong. The theme of the Conferences echoes with the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's policy to promote sustainable and green buildings.

I do not need to emphasize too much about the importance of sustainable development for all of us and our future generations. Issues on sustainable and green building design have become a focal point for people in Hong Kong and over the region. The 2007 Regional Conferences on Sustainable Building and Construction in Hong Kong provide a platform for experts in Hong Kong and other cities to share their visions and experiences in the latest trends and researches in sustainable building development. The Conferences will foster keener collaboration and connection amongst stakeholders in the region and also raise the environmental consciousness of people living there. I am sure that with our continued efforts and devotion we will make our living environment a more sustainable and greener place that everyone can enjoy.

I take this opportunity to wish the 2007 Regional Conferences on Sustainable Building and Construction in Hong Kong every success.

Mrs Carrie Lam
Secretary for Development

 

發展局局長賀辭


我衷心祝賀環保建築專業議會在香港成功舉辦「2007香港可持續發展建築與城巿國際會議」。香港特別行政區政府一向致力推動可持續發展及環保建築,而是次會議的主題正好與特區政府的政策互相呼應。
眾所周知,可持續發展對我們及我們的後代至為重要,而可持續及環保建築設計,已成為本港以至區內各地居民共同關心的議題。藉著「2007香港可持續發展建築與城巿國際會議」這個場合,香港及其他城市的專家可以聚首一堂,就可持續發展建築的最新動向及研究調查,各抒己見,並分享經驗。會議亦有助促進區內各持分者更緊密合作和聯繫,並能提高區內各地居民的環保意識。我相信只要我們不斷努力投入發展,定能締造一個更環保並能持續發展的居住環境,讓人人安居樂業。
我謹藉此機會,祝賀「2007香港可持續發展建築與城巿國際會議」取得美滿成果。
