Symposium to explore logistics' connectivity aspect

The drive to bring Hong Kong up-to-scale as a logistics hub has been intensified with the formation of the Logistics Development Council. With its prime location at the middle of East Asia and excellent infrastructure, Hong Kong is best qualified as the logistics hub of the region. Now, with China's entry into the World Trade Organization, Hong Kong's logistics capabilities will be put to a test and more importantly, the flow of information will be the key to turning Hong Kong into the international logistics hub it aspires to be.

eLogistics, or the application of information technologies in logistics, is recognized as a critical tool in facilitating the logistics process. It could considerably enhance the

efficiency of industry players and help corporations stand out in the increasingly competitive business environment, particularly against the background of globalization.

Procurement & eLogistics Management Symposium 2002, organized by Hong Kong Productivity Council and City University of Hong Kong, will be an opportunity for those concerned to get a comprehensive understanding and updated information on e-logistics and procurement. Experts including Hong Kong Government officials, Mainland logistics bodies, industry leaders in supply chain management, information technology and the academia will gather together, bringing you the latest e-logistics and procurement management concepts, Government plan for the Hong Kong logistics hub development, market trend and case studies with hands-on experience from successful business players.

The two-day symposium, to be held on 26-27 March, 2002 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, will be most relevant and valuable to logistics and procurement professionals, decision-makers from the Government, top corporate executives, as well as interested parties from the public. Participants will return to their organizations with the framework, insights and tools to build up their e-logistics and procurement capacity.
