Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (HKETO), Ms Emily Mo, joined the 2023 iPitch Competition “Venture into Asia” hosted by the Junior Hong Kong-Canada Business Association (McGill Chapter) (JHKCBA) on March 10, where participating university students competed in teams on business related topics.
Addressing the event virtually, Ms Mo took the opportunity to give participants an overview of Hong Kong’s latest developments, especially the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSARG)'s latest initiatives to attract businesses and young talents to explore opportunities in the city.
Ms Mo said that the unique connectivity, history and economic development had made Hong Kong a comfortable and convenient place to live and work, adding that the Dedicated Team for Attracting Business and Talents in HKETO is working full steam to attract and support Canadian enterprises and talents arriving in Hong Kong.
She emphasised that under the "one country, two systems" principle, Hong Kong enjoyed unparalleled advantages of having the high degree of connectivity globally and with the Mainland of China, which helped people and businesses achieve excellence in their chosen fields from traditional financial sector to I&T, arts and virtual asset management.
She encouraged young Canadian talents to grasp the enormous opportunities and make use of Hong Kong as a springboard to enter the fastest growing market in the East.
