Meeting with Belt and Road Office

Denis Yip, Commissioner for Belt and Road, paid a courtesy call on Chamber CEO George Leung and Belt & Road Working Group Co-Convenors Edmond Yue and Nicholas Ho on 18 March to discuss ways to help more businesses in Hong Kong and overseas get on the BRI train. He was accompanied by Deputy Commissioner Kesson Lee and his team from the Belt and Road Office.

Yip said his office had been organizing webinars to promote trade and investment between Hong Kong and Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. He added that the Belt and Road Summit 2021, planned to take place in September, will feature a new emphasis on the Greater Bay Area (GBA), RCEP, ASEAN and their connection to the BRI. He explained that the his office’s work had been geared towards promoting Hong Kong as a top-class service provider to BRI countries, and leveraging Hong Kong’s advantages in sectors such as I&T, finance, startups, medical, construction and engineering. 

Leung said the Chamber and its BRI Working Group keeps members abreast of the latest developments of the BRI, and, through its connections with overseas chambers, connects members with potential partners in emerging markets in ASEAN and beyond.
