Belt and Road Working Group Meeting
Belt & Road Series
Edmond Yue, Co-Convenor of the Belt and Road Working Group, hosted the group’s meeting on 2 March. He invited Liu Yajun, Head of Commercial Office, Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR, who spoke on the latest developments of the Belt and Road, and the initiative’s relations with the recently signed Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and the Mainland’s Dual Circulation Strategy.
Liu said countries in the RCEP region had traditionally been important markets for the Belt and Road, so the RCEP will further create and enhance synergy between members of the trade bloc and the initiative.
Although Hong Kong is not yet a member of the RCEP, it aims to join at the first opportunity. The Mainland supports Hong Kong's inclusion in the bloc, and believes the city will play a key role in connecting the participating economies through its state-of-the-art services industries and financial infrastructure.
