"I want to accelerate my business so that we as a company make a significant impact to society. I do not believe there is a bigger opportunity than to potentially help millions of people across Asia in the prevention of diseases and to save lives via the use of DNA technology. I want to create jobs, I want to create the next generation of leaders and I want to make Hong Kong proud!"
