Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto), Ms Emily Mo, attended a series of virtual Chinese New Year celebration events organised by various business associations in Ontario, including Hong Kong-Canada Business Association (Greater Toronto Area Section), as well as Toronto, Brampton and Mississauga Chinese Business Associations in the week of January 29.
In delivering speeches on these occasions in pre-recorded videos, she was delighted to share with participants that this year is an important milestone for Hong Kong, as Year 2022 celebrates the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. “The theme of ‘A New Era – Stability • Prosperity • Opportunity’ represents Hong Kong’s achievements over the past 25 years, and underscores our anticipation for and confidence in a brighter future,” Ms Mo elaborated on the theme of the celebration.
“With the staunch support from the Central Government, Hong Kong has successfully implemented ‘one country, two systems’ over the past 25 years while sustaining its role as an international metropolis,” Ms Mo continued.
Looking forward, Ms Mo is optimistic about the future of Hong Kong. “Under the National 14th Five-Year Plan and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area development, a promising future will be created for Hong Kong as people work together and grasp the new opportunities ahead,” Ms Mo said.
Before closing, Ms Mo invited participants to join the series of celebration events and continue to partner with HKETO in building a more resilient and thriving Hong Kong. “The celebration events will include the flagship galas, invaluable business and academic seminars, arts and photo exhibitions as well as cultural performances,” Ms Mo said. Besides, she also delivered New Year greetings to the participants and wished businesses in Canada and Hong Kong to flourish in the Year of the Tiger.
