The success of Hong Kong’s manufacturing industries owed much to the devotion and contribution of small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The operation of SMEs is not confined to the activities inside their factories. Collaboration with various parties outside the factories, such as import/export companies, large manufacturers, other industry practitioners, internal contractors and outworkers, cannot be overlooked. The manufacturing operation of factories in Hong Kong has never been a closed-door business. Instead, it is a highly flexible system involving various production units and workers. In this talk, the speaker will recapture how Hong Kong’s manufacturing industries in the old days went beyond the boundaries of factories, with families living in public housing estates forming part of the production chain.
