Connecting Hong Kong and Dutch businesses

Lucille Merks, Deputy Consul General of the Netherlands in Hong Kong SAR and Macao, Senior Commercial Officer Betty Liu and Economic Officer Polyee Tang, visited the Chamber on 30 September, where they were welcomed by Chamber CEO George Leung and PR & Programs Director Malcolm Ainsworth.

Merks, who took up the position in August 2022, said she hopes to cooperate with the Chamber to help Dutch companies connect with both Hong Kong and Mainland businesses to explore new opportunities. Green technologies, innovation, fin-tech as well as art and design were some of the industries in which the Netherlands excels.

She also proposed helping members to get ready for a new EU supply chain law. The draft European Supply Chain Act requires EU companies to audit their suppliers along the entire global supply chain, including all direct and indirect business relationships. Leung agreed it was important to inform businesses early so that they can understand and prepare for the law. The Chamber will be organizing talks on the law, which is part of the EU’s sustainable economy plans.
