NEC in Hong Kong

In 2019, NEC marked 10 years in Hong Kong and continues going from strength to strength. As of 2019, there were more than 170 NEC works contracts and 30 NEC PSC contracts, amounting to a value of over HK$70 billion.  Looking ahead, NEC will still be a key driver for improvement, working alongside the  Government and the construction industry to build a better Hong Kong.

Government Recommendation

The Development Bureau, HKSAR, recommends the progressive transition from NEC3 to NEC4 in public works projects in Hong Kong. With suitable amendments to adapt to the Hong Kong local environment, NEC4 is expected to further enhance collaboration parnering, unlock innovations and acheive better cost management and value for money in public works projects.

Mr. S.H. Lam, Permanent Secretary for Development (Works) of Hong Kong SAR Government is the Chariman of the NEC Asia-Pacific Users' Group.
