"The definition of what makes a good website depends partly on its purpose," said David Chung, Chief Technology Officer, Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited, who was on the judging panel of the Commercial and Non-commercial categories. "Whether it be a commercial or non-commercial website, a good website should meet a variety of different characteristics to be considered of quality. I am glad to see that the winning websites of both categories can serve as role models, showcasing best-in-class website practice in the industries and for the general public, as they have met some basic agreement on what constitutes quality in website function and design, particularly on its useful, easy to navigate, relevant and updated content, accessibility and meet its purpose."
