Dear Speakers and Guests,
It is my great honour and pleasure to welcome you all to this major international
event in Hong Kong.
Following the success of our previous eight international conferences spread
over the last decade, you are now attending
the Ninth International Value Management
Conference from 29th October to 1st November
2008, jointly hosted by the Hong Kong Institute
of Value Management and the Department
of Building and Real Estate of the Hong
Kong Polytechnic University.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Achieving Sustainable Values through
Collaboration”. This topic attracts attention
from all industries worldwide and the construction
industry is of no exception. The conference
will provide a valuable opportunity for
all of you to exchange views and experiences,
and to explore possible collaborations
in the future.
I wish to take this opportunity to thank all members of the Organising Committee
and the volunteers for the excellent job
they have done and their hard work in organising this major event.
Last but not least, I wish all of you a fruitful and pleasant participation at
the conference in Hong Kong.
Professor Geoffrey Q.P. Shen, PhD, CVS, VMF (List A)
