Strengthening Ties with Belt and Road Office
Belt & Road Series
We had a constructive meeting with Rex Chang, the new Commissioner of Belt and Road Office on 14 March. He was accompanied by Mary Tsang, Assistant Commissioner of Belt and Road Office and Helen Cheng, Trade Officer of Belt and Road Office, and were welcomed by Chamber CEO George Leung and Belt & Road Working Group Co-Convenors Edmond Yue and Nicholas Ho.
Chang said despite the pandemic, the government's plan for the BRI was to maintain the same momentum and promote Hong Kong's role as a functional platform between the Mainland and the international community. His office had organized a few webinars with ASEAN counties, namely Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, and was planning to organize another session with United Arab Emirates soon, a country with which Hong Kong had seen business ties growing rapidly in the past couple of years.
Apart from connecting Hong Kong to the international market, Chang said it was also important to bring Hong Kong and Mainland businesses together and find synergy. With that in mind, his office was organizing a few events with Mainland authorities to help promote integration of Hong Kong's state-of-the-art professional services sector with projects owners in the Mainland. He added there were many opportunities in green financing to help build a sustainable BRI.
