HKETO Director attends CUHKAAO’s Gala Dinner

Posted in: Press Releases

October 26, 2018


Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto), Miss Kathy Chan, attended the gala dinner hosted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong Alumni Association (Ontario) (CUHKAAO) on October 26 in Toronto.

Speaking at the dinner, Miss Chan first welcomed a delegation led by Vice-Chancellor and President of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Professor Rocky Tuan, and joined by members of its newly established Vice-Chancellor's Global Alumni Advisory Board to hold their first meeting in Toronto.

Miss Chan was delighted to inform the audience of the commissioning of two mega infrastructure projects in Hong Kong recently.  The first one is the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link, which came into service on September 23. This link initially connects Hong Kong directly to 44 destinations on Mainland China.  It now only takes 14 minutes to reach Shenzhen, and 48 minutes to Guangzhou. 

“Just two days ago, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge also came into operation,” Miss Chan continued. The Bridge greatly shortens the travelling time between Hong Kong and the western Pearl River Delta.  “For example, the travelling time from Zhuhai to Hong Kong International Airport is slashed from 4 hours to 45 minutes,” she said. The Bridge would facilitate the flow of people and logistics of goods between Hong Kong, Macao and Zhuhai, bringing economic benefits to the three places.

In closing, Miss Chan invited participants to come back to Hong Kong to experience the commute convenience brought by the two new transport projects in the city.
