Promoting ICT Adoption among SMEs

The vast majority of businesses in Hong Kong are the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and the extent of their adoption of information and communications technology (ICT) is key to Hong Kong's development as a digital economy. Over the years, the Government and the ICT industry have joined hands to facilitate the wider adoption of ICT among SMEs. Through the OGCIO's Sector-specific Programme (SSP) and IT Training Programme for SMEs (ITTP), we have supported 25 projects for 17 business sectors [1] since 2004. To date, 22 projects have successfully completed, benefiting over 38 000 practitioners from SMEs. The remaining projects are in progress. Given SMEs' significance in Hong Kong's economy, OGCIO will continue to launch initiatives to enhance their adoption of ICT with a view to enhance their overall competitiveness.
