As the Chairman of the Asia-Oceania Computing Technology Organisation (ASOCIO) ICT Summit 2008 Organising Committee, Mr Ng has facilitated the donation of scholarships to 30 full-time Higher Diploma students newly admitted to the IT Discipline in the academic year of 2009/10, to encourage more young people to pursue IT studies to meet the growing manpower demands of the IT industry in Hong Kong.
