|Growing U.K.-Hong Kong Business|
We had a very insightful discussion on 21 February with Jonathan Marshall, who recently arrived in Hong Kong to head up the British Consulate's Economic and Global Issues Section. Europe Committee Chairman Davide De Rosa and Vice Chairman Alfonso Ballesteros welcomed Marshall who was eager to hear the business sector's outlook for Hong Kong now that we have fully reopened following Covid.
Both De Rosa and Ballesteros said that they were very confident that with the borders fully opened, the city will quickly bounce back. They explained that Hong Kong is such a unique city with so many advantages reinforced by the one country two systems that it cannot be replaced.
Marshall also expressed keen interest in learning more about the Greater Bay Area and Hong Kong's position in this plan. Both sides agreed to work closely together and organize events to help British companies better understand this rapidly growing market.
