President Message

Mr Emil Yu

I am truly honoured to have been chosen as the FEMC President for the 2023–2025 term. In addition to effectively increasing its membership over the last 20 plus years, FEMC has also expanded its outreach to and partnerships with a wide spectrum of institutional, professional, governmental, and private entities. I must express my sincere gratitude to our past presidents, James Chiu, Otto Poon, Paul Chong, and Rocky Poon, for their insightful leadership and tremendous contributions. Moreover, the cooperative and unwavering support from our constituent associations—ACRA, ECA, EMCA, FSICA, LECA, and PSWTA—has reinforced our shared objective and united us in our representation of the E&M sector in all spheres.

Legislating the Security of Payment into law with equitable and fair contract terms and conditions have long been goals and challenges for the E&M sector. In order to achieve these important objectives for long-term industry growth and sustainable business practices, FEMC has been and will continue to be involved in discussions, liaisons, and working groups with stakeholders and business partners, especially with the government. Under the NEC's guiding principles, cooperation and a spirit of mutual trust and trust are essential to advancing business confidence and industrial advancement.

For our industry to be viable over the long run, work safety is critical. At the same time, to move beyond the current comfort zone, the digital era must be embraced. To stay ahead in today's cutthroat and intricate commercial and social world, we must innovate and adapt to changes in our practice based on our prior knowledge and experience. At the same time, we must instil a culture of safety in our workers and ensure that risk assessment is always in mind.

The aging workforce and shortage of workers and practitioners in Hong Kong industries are no secret. In order to lower construction costs and project delays, coordination between various trade practitioners through BIM is an area that needs to be continuously improved. MiC and MiMEP with Design for Safety and Design for Manufacture and Assembly during the construction phase and beyond are also of paramount importance. Best practices must be shared among the partitioners through continuous professional development.

For the E&M industry to be sustainable, our association must keep pushing for training and bringing in fresh talent. Our Youth Committee serves as a platform to draw in young people who want to work in the E&M field, advance their skills, and achieve their goals.

Last but not least, may I again express my heartfelt thanks to the constituent associations, every member, and every business partner for their unfailing support of FEMC.

Emil YU
