Smart Manufacturing Recruitment Promises to Boost Hong Kong Economic Growth


Hong Kong, China -- (SBWire) -- 04/27/2022 --According to Hong Kong's Labor and Welfare Bureau, the local innovation and technology ecosystem is creating a broad range of opportunities in manufacturing recruitment. In particular, the 'InnoPark' concept, which has resulted in three former industrial estates in Tai Po, Tseung Kwan O and Yuen Long being repositioned as tech-centric InnoParks, is supporting the government focus on re-industrialisation to boost economic growth. 'Innofacturing' will take place in InnoParks - an "infusion of innovation into existing industries through the use of advanced technologies, such as AI, robotics and data analytics." This will provide exciting opportunities for those with skill sets in areas such as R&D. The government has emphasised the importance of bringing traditional industry up to speed with technology - achieving Industry 4.0's smart production techniques. With this new focus it intends to diversify the economy away from reliance on sectors such as logistics and tourism and towards a more tech-driven manufacturing sector that can help to support greater economic growth in the region.

Established in 2008, DSJ Global specialises in manufacturing recruitment and a broad spectrum of roles in connected fields such as procurement and supply chain. The drive to update the manufacturing sector, infusing technology to improve efficiency and outcomes, is not exclusive to Hong Kong.

"2021 was a year of pressure and strain for procurement & supply chain markets globally. Travel restrictions, delays on cargo flights and congested shipping lanes created a multitude of challenges for the smooth operations of supply lanes globally which had a knock-on effect for recruiting and retaining top talent in this field" said Jamie Thorpe, Head of DSJ Global, Hong Kong. "These macro factors created high demand for candidates with extensive experience in Strategic Procurement, Logistics and Supply Chain within a very tight candidate pool. Companies have had to resort to offering very high compensation and benefits to attract the talent they desperately need."
