A warm welcome to the inaugural Internet Economy Summit.

The rapid development and continuing evolution of the Internet and mobile technology are great growth engines. Together, they promise to power global economies through this 21st century. Hong Kong, the region's ICT hub and the super-connector between the Mainland of China and the rest of the world, is well placed to take advantage of the burgeoning new economy.

A highlight of the International IT Fest, the Summit spotlights the myriad, fast-moving opportunities propelled by the Internet. Technology leaders and innovators from Hong Kong, the mainland and throughout the world are here to share their experiences in the Internet economy, its many challenges and endless opportunities.

Beyond information and intelligence, I am confident the Summit will provide the insights and the inspiration you need to take your business, or your start-up plans, to the next level in our dynamic digital age.
