25 October 2023

The Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Mr John Lee Ka-chiu GBM SBS PDSM PMSM announced today in The 2023 Policy Address that the new building of the HKSI, to be completed in mid-2024, will provide more advanced training facilities for elite athletes. The HKSAR Government will also allocate additional resources to enhance its Sports Medicine Centre. Mr Tang King-shing GBS PDSM, Chairman of the HKSI welcomed this news and agreed that the new measures proposed by the Chief Executive showed how much the Government understands the needs of elite sports development.

Mr Tang extended his thanks to the Chief Executive for the significant allocation of resources to the HKSI, saying, “The HKSI has been providing science-based, athlete centred support to coaches for elite training. The HKSI new facilities building to be completed next year will not only provide athletes with more advanced training facilities, but also strengthen the functions of multiple elite training science and technology centres. Thanks to the HKSAR Government for allocating additional resources to the Sports Medicine Centre, through the synergy of both hardware and software, we will surely be able to provide athletes with more appropriate and comprehensive support services. The HKSI is fully committed to collaborating with the HKSAR Government for implementing the sports policies and working with stakeholders to bring local elite sports development to new heights.”

At the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games and the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou this year, Hong Kong athletes achieved historic results, while some athletes are currently competing diligently at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Para Games. Mr Tang believed that the policy direction and resource allocation by the HKSAR Government will continue empower athletes to strive for more honour for Hong Kong.
