THE HKIE GEOTECHNICAL DIVISION 43rd ANNUAL SEMINAR 2023 - Towards a Smart-Green-Resilient Geo-Future for World-class City Development

Hybrid Webinar 

Date: 19 May 2023 (Friday)

Time: 09:00 – 17:00


The Seminar

With heightened expectations for green growth and sustainable development, geotechnical engineers are in a prime position to build Hong Kong into a world-class smart, resilient city. Geotechnical engineering has been embracing innovation and technology in laying the groundwork for the provision of land and infrastructure in Hong Kong, including the six new major rail link and road projects announced in the 2022 Policy Address. Government, academia, practitioners and industrial partners are collaborating synergistically to action on climate change and carbon neutrality, and to reinforce Hong Kong as one of the most livable cities. This concerted effort, underpinned by our geotechnical expertise, has overcome geographical constraints of very limited natural, developable land and enhanced our economy and living quality. This seminar provides a platform for policymakers, practitioners and academia to share their insights and brainstorm ideas with a view to seizing future opportunities and shaping the new future of Hong Kong.
