On behalf of the Council and Members of the Society of Construction Law Hong Kong, may I welcome you to this year's One Day Conference:

"Is 2015 a Year of Reform for the Hong Kong Construction Industry?"

We are delighted to have Ir. C.M. Chan JP, Deputy Secretary (Works), HKSAR Government Secretariat, Development Bureau. Mr. Chan heads the Government's Works Policies and Infrastructural Projects Division and has kindly agreed to give the Opening Address. We are also delighted to have Sir Vivian Ramsey, former High Court judge and judge-in-charge of the Technology and Construction Court in England & Wales. Sir Vivian will deliver the Keynote Address.

The Conference this year is focused upon the statutory changes concerning competition and procurement, security of payment and adjudication. The former are due to be implemented in Hong Kong in the near future. The latter may still be a little way off but the legislative process has now been kick-started. These various changes are likely to have a significant impact on future construction industry practices in Hong Kong. In addition, the Conference will look at how NEC3 is standing the test of time and what lessons are still to be learnt using this standard form, which the HKSAR Government appears to be committed to using in Hong Kong.

Once again, the Conference will adopt a debate style format with panels comprising a mix of internationally and locally renowned legal and industry practitioners.

We also wish to thank all of our sponsors from Hong Kong and the UK for supporting this annual event.

I very much hope that everyone attending this year's Conference will find it both informative and enjoyable.
