HKETO Director joins Hong Kong-Mississauga Innovation Exchange Event to promote business opportunities in Hong Kong

Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (HKETO), Ms Emily Mo, joined the inaugural “Hong Kong-Mississauga Innovation Exchange” event co-organised by the HKETO, Invest Hong Kong (InvestHK) (Canada) and IDEA Mississauga in partnership with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council on April 11 to promote business opportunities in Hong Kong.

The event, drawing nearly 100 participants, aimed to facilitate innovative idea exchanges, foster business partnerships, and cultivate meaningful connections between the City of Mississauga and Hong Kong.

In delivering opening remarks, Ms Mo noted the close ties developed between Hong Kong and the City of Mississauga over the past decades, in which the Hong Kong immigrant community embraced Mississauga as home and contributed significantly to its growth through investments, entrepreneurship, and cultural enrichment. Concurrently, Ms Mo said, Hong Kong also opened its doors wide to Canadian enterprises keen on exploring the vast opportunities in the East.

Ms Mo outlined some of Hong Kong’s unparalleled advantages under the “one country, two systems”, including simple tax system and low tax rate, the city’s role as a premier fundraising platform, huge support from the Canadian community in Hong Kong, and its strategic location.  She added that Hong Kong’s strategic location offers seamless access to the Indo-Pacific region, including the mainland China, particularly the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) and other key Asian markets.

“Being the most open and international city in GBA, Hong Kong is a core city of the development.  With numerous facilitation measures and policies introduced and being planned to create synergy between the relevant cities, companies in Hong Kong (including foreign companies registered in Hong Kong) will be able to tap into this huge and rising market like no others,” she said.

Following Ms Mo’s remarks was a panel discussion by industry experts from McMillan, MNP and Roynat Capital Scotiabank on practical business resources for small-and-media-size enterprises and start-ups. Participants also joined informative sessions on government funding and support for innovative startups by IDEA Mississauga, YSpace York University and InvestHK (Canada), where Head of InvestHK, Mr Christopher Chen, shared about the funding and market opportunities in Hong Kong.
