Productivity and Quality

Hong Kong Productivity Council


Hong Kong Productivity Council


The Hong Kong Awards for Industries: Productivity and Quality primarily aims to encourage and give recognition to Hong Kong enterprises that have attained improved productivity and quality on a continual basis. It also aims to promote successful practices and strategies in various aspects of industrial performance.


This annual productivity and quality award programme is open to all companies and organizations, including subsidiaries or divisions within a company or organization in Hong Kong, that function as a business entity. The company must have a clear definition of organization as reflected in its organization charts, administration manuals and annual reports.

Entrants may include both manufacturing and servicing enterprises or companies that provide manufacturing- or service-related services which are registered with the Business Registration Office of the Inland Revenue Department for one year at least, and have demonstrated improvement in productivity and quality. For manufacturing organizations, the location of activity needs not necessarily be confined to Hong Kong. However, at least one or more of the critical manufacturing-related processes such as design, research and development, tooling, quality control, product development, marketing, etc., must be carried out in Hong Kong to support the overall in-house manufacturing operations. For organizations in the service sector, the major operations have to be in Hong Kong.

The organizer of the Hong Kong Awards for Industries: Productivity and Quality has the final decision on the eligibility of applicants.
