Reflections on the Hong Kong CIRC report

Fox, Paul William, Skitmore, Martin, & Hon, Carol K.H. (2008) Reflections on the Hong Kong CIRC report. In Proceedings of the CII-HK Conference 2008 : Building a Stronger Construction Industry for Hong Kong : Opportunities and Challenges, Construction Industry Institute, Hong Kong, Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel and Towers, Hong Kong, pp. 147-157.


The Government of the Hong Kong SAR sponsored a report investigating the Hong Kong construction inudstry and published the investigating committee's findings in 2001 (HK CIRC 2001). Since then the Provisional Construction Industry Coordination Board (PCICB), and its successor, the Construction Industry Council (CIC), also set up by the Government, has made progress with the necessary reforms. Now that seven years have passed, it is time for an independent evaluation of the impact of the CIRC initiative in order to assist the CIC and the Government decision-makers in refining the efforts to improve the industry's performance. This paper reports on the interim results of a study that seeks to provide such an evaluation.
