HKB lauds top companies in China International Business Awards and Technology Excellence Awards 2021

Outstanding companies in China were awarded via virtual presentations.

The rapid spread of COVID-19 across the globe jolted businesses across industries and left multiple countries struggling amidst the economic downturn. However, with technology and digital transformation taking centre stage, Chinese companies were able to see their businesses thrive during the crisis.

Hong Kong Business recognised these outstanding international firms and exceptional technology companies at the China International Business Awards and China Technology Excellence Awards held virtually throughout the month of September.

The China International Business Awards lauded global companies that have found a solid foothold in China, whilst the China Technology Excellence Awards honoured enterprises that have remarkably contributed to transforming industries through technology. The winners, in turn, shared their thoughts on dominating the prestigious awards programmes through virtual interviews.

Nominees for the China International Business Awards were judged by Mark Gilbraith, China Consulting, Consumer Markets, Health and Technology Industry Leader at PwC China; Ben Huang, National Head of International Business at Grant Thornton China; Jason Yau, Partner & Regional Leader, Asia-Pacific at RSM; Gordon Gao, Tax Partner & General Manager at BDO China Tax, BDO Tax Limited; and Jens Ewert, MNC Affairs Lead Partner at Deloitte China.

Meanwhile, China Technology Excellence Awards nominations were judged by an equally elite panel of judges consisting of Wilson Chow, Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Industry Leader at PwC; Mark Lian, Technology Sector Leader at Deloitte; and Martin Ngai, Telecom, Media & Technology Tax Leader, Greater China at EY.

Congratulations to the winners!
