Belt and Road Initiative

"Through our information website, missions, our global network and partnerships, and our annual Belt and Road Summit, we have helped businesses from Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and around the world to collaborate and explore commercial opportunities on the Belt and Road. We look forward to continue working with the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government to enhance this flagship event on 11-12 September next year, by stepping up business matching and promotional elements," he added.
Asia's convention and exhibition hub
The HKTDC is pleased to note the Government's clear direction to enhance the development of the convention and exhibition industry.
