To maximise the capacity of the road network and enhance road safety, it is our objective to encourage the application of new technology to traffic management in Hong Kong. As such, the Government has deployed a wide spectrum of advanced technologies in managing traffic and promoted the development and provision of value-added transport services through partnership and collaboration with the private sector, academic and professional institutions. ITS organizations like ITS-HK, a non-profit making learned society established in 2000 to promote the ITS industry among members and to communicate with worldwide ITS organizations, also play an important role in the development of ITS in Hong Kong.
