Secretary for Labour & Welfare Chris Sun delivers his opening remarks at the online job fair.

Hong Kong Talent Engage (HKTE) co-hosted an online job fair with recruitment platforms in Hong Kong and the Mainland today, with over 240,000 views and over 2,000 job applications submitted online in about two hours.


Delivering the fair's opening remarks, Secretary for Labour & Welfare Chris Sun said he hoped the webcast could help those interested in coming to Hong Kong to better understand its talent attraction initiatives and assist them in mapping out their career paths in the city through the sectors' information and job opportunities shared by representatives of participating organisations.


Six large public and private organisations in Hong Kong participated in the job fair, offering over 500 job vacancies.


Most of the vacancies required applicants to hold a bachelor's degree or above, whereas individual professional positions required postdoctoral qualifications, such as data business analysts, cloud infrastructure engineers, cyber security analysts and postdoctoral fellows in artificial intelligence.


HKTE said that it will continue to collaborate with designated partners to organise diverse online and offline activities, and facilitate different sectors in attracting quality talent with a view to injecting impetus for Hong Kong's long-term development.
