The construction industry makes a significant contribution to securing a sustainable future of Hong Kong. Productivity measures the output to input ratio and provides valuable insights into the long-term potential of an economy. Therefore, construction industry productivity has long been an important issue for Hong Kong. However, the industry faces severe challenges including cost escalation and labour shortage. This 2nd international consultation forum is part of a study funded by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) and led by The University of Hong Kong (HKU), which aims to enhance the productivity and efficiency of the Hong Kong construction industry by conducting a comprehensive and rigorous investigation on the practices, procedures and standards adopted in the industry.

The forum aims to shape a more productive construction industry by exploring strategies and measures, both locally and internationally, for improving construction industry productivity in five strategic areas, namely, policy formation; regulatory requirements; planning and design; project management and administration; and site construction. The forum will feature renowned international and local speakers to share latest knowledge and practices of enhancing construction productivity.
