HKRITA OFFICE
Welcome on Board

Ms Connie Lai joined HKRITA as Director of Corporate Services in August 2018.

Ms Lai has extensive experience in corporate services. She said “I am delighted to join HKRITA, exploring the innovation and technology horizon with a group of passionate researchers and experts from the textile and apparel industry. I was very excited to witness the joint announcement of HKRITA and industry partners on the major breakthrough in creating a closed loop system for recycling disposed textiles and garments at the Mills in Tsuen Wan and the opening of an environmentally friendly yarn production line in Tai Po Industrial Estate. It is my great honour to be part of a team that contributes to the first return of a textile production line to Hong Kong in more than 50 years. Looking forward, I believe my experience in corporate services can contribute to the development of corporate policies to meet the challenges of changes; to identify red tape and modify costly, ineffective or outdated regulations, so as to facilitate the development of HKRITA. With the support of the Board of Directors and the Innovation and Technology Commission, I will work together with the team to explore a promising future.”
