To strengthen the cooperation in professional training with the Mainland, the Housing Society and Jiangsu Provincial Personnel Department (now renamed Jiangsu Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security) signed an MOU on joint professional training in 2008. Under this MOU, the Housing Society organises housing related training programmes every year for Jiangsu civil servants in Hong Kong.
A close rapport with the Housing and Development Board of Singapore has been maintained for years. In the past few years, several officials and architects visited the Housing Society to gain a better understanding of our latest development in housing projects and housing management practice.
