The speakers from various disciplines have shared their successful stories and technical knowledge in face mask productions, it has arouse the interests of participants, engaging actively in the last panel discussion section.
Topics and Speakers:
- Mr. Benny Chang, CEO of Sun Shine Investment Holdings Limited
Topic: Reindustrialization Opportunity in Hong Kong by taking facemask manufacturing as a footprint forward
- Mr. Cola Lam, Lead Consultant in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Division of Hong Kong Productivity Council
Topic: Setup, Maintenance, Efficiency control of surgical mask production line in Hong Kong
- Mr. Yip Kam Hung, General Manager of Sunny Social Enterprise
