The Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (HKETO), Miss Kathy Chan, attended the Chinese New Year Gala Dinner of the Confederation of Greater Toronto Chinese Business Association (Confederation) in Toronto on February 11.
Speaking at the gala dinner, Miss Chan noted that in the past year, the HKETO continued to work closely with the four Chinese business associations of the Confederation to encourage and help local businesses to make use of the “super-connector” role of Hong Kong to tap into the markets of Mainland China and the rest of Asia. She thanked the staunch support rendered by the Confederation to the work of HKETO.
She said that Hong Kong is an excellent place to do business. More importantly, Hong Kong continues to be an ideal gateway to go into Mainland China for businesses from around the world, including Canadian businesses.
“Under the “one country, two systems” arrangement, Hong Kong enjoys the unique advantage to have entered into a special free trade arrangement with Mainland China, which provides all Hong Kong-based companies, regardless of their origin, the most favourable terms when accessing the massive market of Mainland China. Hong Kong also has the people who have the knowledge, experience and connections of doing business with Mainland China,” Miss Chan added.
2017 not only celebrates the 150th anniversary of the confederation of Canada, but also marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Miss Chan invited the attendees of the gala dinner to join the series of celebration activities that are being planned by HKETO in the year ahead.
