President's Message


Welcome to the new HKIP website

On behalf of the Hong Kong Institute of Planners (HKIP), I would like to extend a warm and sincere welcome to you to our newly redesigned website.

Over the years, information was uploaded, spreading out over different databases, sections and homepages. Last year, we initiated the revamping exercise to redesign the website. Through the good work of our young members, you can now explore the new HKIP website by your PC or smartphone, obtain the latest information and give timely feedback in a one-stop portal. This newly revamped website will definitely give you a more comfortable browsing and reading experience.

We will continue our effort to update the website and make it more informative, more user-friendly and more fun. We have also started to connect with our members and the general public through a few popular social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn. In the reaching out process, I am sure you will find areas we can further improve. I hope you will let us know any suggestions you may have. We have ventured into a new platform for HKIP to grow and evolve. The world is changing. Our city is changing. Let’s get ready and embrace the new challenges together!

 Ms Fiona Lung, President
