Chamber Welcomes EU Office’s New Head of Trade Section

Walter van Hattum, recently appointed Head of Trade of the European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao, visited the Chamber on 10 March with colleagues Sami Al Daghistani, and Weng Lam Chu, where they were welcomed by Chamber CEO George Leung, General Committee Member and Europe Committee Chairman Jennifer Chan, and PR & Programs Director Malcolm Ainsworth.

Van Hattum introduced the latest trade developments concerning the European Union (E.U.) and its trading partners, and discussed the bloc’s economic and e-commerce policies. The E.U. is currently reviewing its trade policy, van Hattum said, in order to address issues arising from the Coronavirus pandemic, but expects it will still be the most open trade bloc in the world.

The two sides also discussed possible impacts on Hong Kong businesses brought by the Comprehensive Agreement on Investment reached in principle by Mainland China and the E.U. last December after seven years of negotiations.
