HKETO Director presents 2023 Chinese Canadian Legend Award at the 22nd Award Gala

Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (HKETO), Ms Emily Mo, attended the 22nd Chinese Canadian Legend (CCL) Award Gala on July 29 and presented award to an outstanding Chinese Canadian who made remarkable achievements in her field.

Organised by the Chinese Canadian Legend Association, the CCL Award is one of the most prestigious, influential and distinctive awards in Canada with an aim to promote and recognize the achievements and contributions of Chinese Canadians and to foster multiculturalism, understanding as well as respect between different communities.

Speaking at the gala, Ms Mo highlighted the Hong Kong spirit which is a testament to unwavering resilience, determination and adaptability, adding that the “can-do spirit” is what Hong Kong people beautifully embody in pursuing dreams.

She presented the CCL Award to Sue Tang, a Hong Kong-born woman who forged a successful career in Canada and pursued charitable endeavors with a sense of gratitude – a testimony of Hong Kong spirit.

Earlier this month, Ms Mo attended the Summer Extravaganza organised by the Women International Network (WIN) of the Hong Kong-Canada Business Association, an event supported by HKETO, Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) in Canada and Invest Hong Kong (InvestHK) Canada. The WIN event, held on July 20, facilitated networking particularly among female entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Speaking at the event, Ms Mo updated event participants of the latest developments of post-pandemic Hong Kong and introduced the new opportunities Hong Kong possesses, including a gateway to the Greater Bay Area, a leading hub for Family Offices and a perfect place for the Fintech & Web 3 development.   She added that in Hong Kong, over one-third of the managers, administrators and professionals are women.  The city is a perfect launchpad for Canadian female entrepreneurs and professionals to access to the Asian markets.

Ms Mo stressed that Hong Kong and Canada are long-term trading partners, and invited Canadian business people to come and experience the new face of Hong Kong.
