Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (HKETO), Ms Emily Mo, briefs politicians and international business leaders on Hong Kong's latest developments at the 2023 Economic and Trade Forum Summit Conference on May 5.
Speaking at its inaugural plenary session, Ms Mo mentioned about the unique advantages Hong Kong enjoys under the “one country, two systems” as the only place in the world where the global advantages from the West and the East come together in a single city. Hong Kong has never stopped its efforts to play the unparalleled role as one of the world's most dynamic and prosperous economies.
Ms Mo pointed out that the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) has expedited various infrastructure developments during pandemic. Besides, the HKSAR Government also rolled out proposals on improving governance at the district level.
“This is an important move to strengthen the district governance structure so as to enhance the efficacy of district governance," Ms Mo said.
Ms Mo said she believed that the economic outlook for Hong Kong in 2023 is positive, and that the city's relationship with Canada will continue to grow and strengthen in the coming years. Noting that Hong Kong has removed all restrictions for travelling, she encouraged participants of the forum to visit the city, to see and to experience, and explore the business opportunities there.
Organised by the Xinflix Entrepreneur Club, the 2023 Economic and Trade Forum Summit Conference is a full day hybrid business forum attended by political and business leaders from Canada and other countries.
