Supporting and Nurturing the Next Generation

We understand the importance of investing in the future and providing growth and development opportunities. We have been putting effort into empowering the next generation to excel and reach their full potential. Youth play an essential role in our sustainability journey initiatives to foster growth, learning and success for the next generation while creating a supportive environment throughout the year.


Active Ageing in Place 2023

We catalysed innovative thinking and social transformation by providing different opportunities in which youth are promoted to solve the significant challenges our society faces. We have organised a one-day design thinking workshop, “Active ageing in Place”, in collaboration with MIT HK Innovation Node in April 2023. This workshop gave students insight into the current challenges and long-term demands of eldercare in Hong Kong.

During the workshop, students have gained the confidence to apply design thinking methodologies in real-world situations. To develop innovative solutions that would support the older population in remaining active, independent and socially connected, our students have embarked on a mission to gather valuable insights and feedback from the citizens of Tsuen Wan. The student group explored four key sites: NINA MALL, Tsuen Wan West MTR station, Tsuen Wan Park and Yeung Uk Road Market. We have encouraged our students to immerse themselves in these locations to gain inspiration to address specific ageing issues and create solutions that could improve the lives of older people.


HKUST Chinachem PrimeMovership Scholarship


Our Group goes beyond being a real estate developer and takes pride in its role as a facilitator for nurturing talented individuals. In line with this commitment, we have collaborated with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (“HKUST”) to establish the Chinachem PrimeMovership Scholarship. In 2022, the Chinachem PrimeMovership scholarship was awarded to 14 students after a rigorous selection process. This scholarship aims to cultivate the next generation of innovation and technology leaders and is a testament to our unwavering dedication to making Hong Kong a smart city.

PolyHack 2023


We have been supporting youth organisations to achieve a sustainable future through technology. We proudly sponsored PolyHack 2023, a global student-led hackathon and ideathon competition. More than 700 motivated individuals from over 80 regions participated in the intensive 2-week competition, creating ground- breaking solutions in the domains of AI, financial technology (“FinTech”), smart city and the Internet of Things (“IoT”). The Best Chinachem Group Award was established to recognise students who presented solutions to society’s challenges. This event encourages youth to continue innovating and work towards a sustainable future.

The Impact Booster Programme


We have co-organised the Impact Booster programme with a local non-profit and invited secondary students to generate innovative solutions for the community in Tsuen Wan. In the programme, we have provided seed funding for the participants to bring their ideas to life. One of our finalists, Resonance, devised a ground-breaking concept. The team also received a cash prize upon being shortlisted as finalists. This opportunity encouraged more youth to make changes, and we are glad to see many aspiring youth eager to create positive impacts.

Career Talks For Tertiary Institutions

We are committed to nurturing the next generation of hospitality talent at Nina Hospitality. To increase awareness of career development opportunities with Nina Hospitality among students studying Hotel and Catering Management and International Hotel Management, we have partnered with the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (“IVE”), a member of the Vocational Training Council (“VTC”), to hold career talks on the VTC campuses. Over 210 students attended the four career talks we conducted, and we look forward to reaching more students through our future on-campus career talks.


HKGCC Business Case Competition


New business models are emerging as the virtual and real worlds come together. We are excited to integrate virtual world concepts into our businesses and projects, envisioning the future of the built environment and activating existing spaces.

We have organised a business case competition with the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (“HKGCC”) to promote cutting-edge technologies such as Web 3.0 metaverse and blockchain. Participants were invited to share inspirational ideas on revolutionising physical and virtual environments, building future cities and societies, forging social connections despite physical barriers and creating financially viable and self- sustaining business models.

This competition allowed students to contribute to transforming the built environment and devise innovative solutions that connect the virtual and physical worlds. Five university student teams were recognised as winners of the 2022 HKGCC Business Case Competition.
