Dr HL YIU

Head of Re-Industrialisation, HKSTP

Dr HL Yiu, head of re-industrialisation division at Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), spearheads the key infrastructures and initiatives in driving re-industrialisation at HKSTP. By providing the state-of-the-art and purpose-designed facilities with special provisions, Yiu fosters advanced industries and smart production in Industrial Estates in Tai Po, Yuen Long and Tseung Kwan O with an ultimate goal to revitalise them to be the base of advanced manufacturing. He strongly believes that re-industrialisation can further elevate the "Made in Hong Kong" label as both an internationally recognized brand and a source of local pride.

Before heading re-industrialisation, Yiu was the lead in the Electronics, Materials, Precision Engineering Clusters and managed 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 such as Arrow and TCL, 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.
