When it comes to building a seamless world-class transit system, there are few better organizations to learn from than Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway (MTR). Over the past four decades, MTR has built a transit network that covers 221 kilometers, serves 5 million people daily, runs on time 99.9% of the time, and operates at a profit.
Hear from MTR CEO, Lincoln Leong, on decades of lessons learned – lessons which our region should consider as we advance network integration.

The need for infrastructure and technological solutions for moving goods efficiently across the region is equally important.
This expert panel will discuss strategic projects for moving people and goods throughout our region, potential funding sources and possible opportunities the Province’s uploading agenda provides.
