The HNU Belt and Road Research Institute visits the Chamber
Liang Haiming, President of the Belt and Road Research Institute at Hainan University, accompanied by Professor Witman Hung, visited the Chamber on 30 August. They met with Petrina Tam, Convenor of the Chamber’s GBA Working Group, and Wendy Hong, a member of the Working Group. HKGCC’s Senior Economist Wilson Chong also joined the meeting.
The two sides discussed the development of the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Border Economic Belt. Professor Hung introduced the concept of the “belt” and explained that it would become a new platform to deepen cross-border cooperation in a wide range of areas including technology innovation, high-end manufacturing, cultural exchanges, tourism and consumption, medical care and education. Tam and Hong remarked that the main challenges for the belt’s development were flow of data and people. However, these issues could turn into advantages if the hurdles to free flow across the border were removed.
