Tsangs Group is pleased to announce that we have teamed up as Strategic Partners with Good City Foundation in June 2021 to create better urban development for emerging cities in Asia.
Good City Foundation is a non-profit, non-governmental development organization founded by a group of young Hong Kong scholars and entrepreneurs. They have been a proud ambassador of bridging young leaders in China and other Asian countries, and establishing a vibrant community of over 2000 people on important topics, such as smart cities and urban development.
The strategic partnership will promote the foundation’s goal to reposition Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Areas as a “Global Marketplace and Platform for Smart Cities Technologies and Green Technologies”; and improve inter-city connectivity through global meets with high-quality governance development programmes for young leaders and mentorship for youth leaders and future talents of entrepreneurial visions to serve the green and digital economy and smart city movement. The partnership also aims to bring positive practices and values of Green Technologies and Smart Cities Governance in Mainland China to Asia and the globe.
The partnership will also include a sponsorship that covers a series of capacity building development programmes such as the “Bootcamp Accelerator for Mayor Offices” (BAMO) and “Future City Summit” (FCS). Endorsed by the World Bank IFC, the BAMO is a VR-supported smart city development incubator for mayor offices in Southeast Asia, while the FCS is an annual conference for global leaders involved in urban technologies and smart city policy making, hosted primarily in Hong Kong and across various cities in Mainland China to discuss and share the latest outlook and trends of emerging cities in Asia through thoughtful discussions, panel sessions, and sharing of best practices.
“The partnership between Good City Foundation and Tsangs Group is a living embodiment of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal №17, which encourages and promotes effective partnerships that can mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, and resources in support of the development progress of countries, in China, Asia and beyond. With Tsangs Group’s support, we look forward to delivering a more robust programme than ever to create impacts on climate change, economic transformation, social inclusion, etc.,” commented Peggy Tse, CFA, Chief Strategy Officer of Good City Foundation.
“Tsangs Group is always a supporter in building a better world. In partnership with Good City Foundation, we firmly believe that we could create value with a positive impact and a positive influence. Good City Foundation consists of a young and passionate team that shares the same values as Tsangs Group. I look forward to participating in the Foundation’s innovative and meaningful initiatives,” commented Patrick Tsang, Chairman of Tsangs Group.
