Chief Corporate Development Officer, Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks Corporation
Dr HL Yiu, Head of Innofacturing Division at Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), spearheads the key infrastructures and initiatives in driving new industrialisation at HKSTP. “Innofacturing”, a term coined by HKSTP in 2021, aptly captures our shared “new industrialisation” goals as it embodies our commitment to advancing I&T-driven manufacturing across Hong Kong’s existing and new industries. By providing the state-of-the-art and purpose-designed facilities with special provisions, Yiu fosters advanced industries and smart production in InnoPark in Tai Po, Yuen Long and Tseung Kwan O with an ultimate goal to revitalise them to be the base of “Innofacturing”. He strongly believes that “Innofacturing” can further elevate the “Innovated, Designed, and Made in Hong Kong” label as both an internationally recognized brand and a source of local pride.
Before heading the Innofacturing Division, Yiu was the lead in the Electronics, Materials, Precision Engineering Clusters, managing over 300 companies of this domain in HKSTP. Leveraging his business development experience and technical expertise in semiconductors and integrated circuit, electronics, information technology, telecommunications and computing, Yiu secured a few key tenants, and drove key initiatives under the Robotics Platform including Robotics Alliance and Robotics Conference.
Prior to HKSTP, Yiu assumed the role of senior executive in both start-up and MNC. Working in Motorola Semiconductor for over 15 years, Yiu was the General Manager Asia, Networking and Computing Group before he left. Being the brain of the famous DragonBall microprocessor, Yiu was one of the key inventors of this successful project which does not only contribute to the development of the personal digital assistant / handheld computers today, but also proves him a visionary leader and an innovator with eight patents.
Graduated with Bachelor and Master of Electronic Engineering as well as the Doctor of Business Administration degree from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Yiu continued his education in Executive MBA, Finance and Juris Doctor from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is currently a fellow member of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers and an Executive Committee Member of Hong Kong Automation Technology Council and Hong Kong Electronics Industry Council of the FHKI.
