In 2008, W3C China Office took over the related business from W3C Hong Kong Office and W3C Hong Kong Office was terminated for a good reason. W3C China Office appreciated the contribution from Hong Kong Office, especially the efforts and supports from Prof. Vincent Shen the Office Manager of W3C Hong Kong Office.
