Financial Secretary Paul Chan visited the community testing centre at the Hong Kong Science Park today to inspect the Universal Community Testing Programme’s operation and encourage the staff.

 

Mr Chan, accompanied by Secretary for Innovation & Technology Alfred Sit, was briefed on the operations and watched the workflow from registration to specimen collection.

 

He praised the healthcare staff and civil servants for performing their duties to fight the virus together.

 

Mr Chan said he was very pleased that the Science Park community has responded enthusiastically to the programme, adding that the community testing centre at the park has been fully booked in the past few days.

 

He encouraged those who have yet to register to actively participate in the programme.

 

Mr Chan took the opportunity to tour the InnoCell, which is currently under construction, after inspecting the community testing centre.

 

The InnoCell will provide short to medium term accommodation for the companies in the Science Park. It is expected to commence operation early next year.

 

Mr Chan then moved to the co-working labs and spaces for biomedical technology to understand how Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks Corporation’s Incu-Bio Programme supports its members.

 

He also met three biomedical technology partner companies of the park.
