He had helped organize the CITAC visit and wine & cheese pairing workshop, which two events were successfully held. PLATFORM STATEMENT By joining ICE HKA G&S as a helper in 2018, I had met many young civil engineers with different backgrounds through participating and organizing activities. Moreover, ICE had also provided me with great support in terms of technical seminar, personal development, career planning etc. It also gave me the chance to learn the construction development and to realize the importance of civil engineers in society. In the coming year, I would like to take up roles to further promote ICE HKA G&S to benefit more young civil engineers.
