Expectation towards Social Innovation and the SIE Fund

"How innovative a city is determines its future position in the global economy, as well as whether her citizens enjoy working and living there. The world has changed and governance is not the job for the government only. Traditional interest groups lobbying through elected representatives to protect their interest in a zero-sum game no longer works in a more networked society. The genuine tripartite cooperation between government, business and civic society will open up a collaborative governance with many social innovative ideas to make our city better. My wish for SIE Fund Task Force is for us to set a good example/role model through our successful work on how collaborative governance could transform the policy-decision process in Hong Kong."
