     The Chief Executive, Mr C Y Leung, meets the visiting Secretary of the CPC Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region Committee, Mr Peng Qinghua, at Government House this evening (June 24) to exchange views on issues of mutual concern.

     Mr Leung welcomed Mr Peng on his visit. He pointed out that Guangxi and ASEAN have close economic ties and there is ample room for development in the trade of goods and services, investment and tourism. He hoped that Hong Kong enterprises could tap the ASEAN market through the platform of Guangxi.

     Mr Leung said that his proposal in the Policy Address to extend the "early and pilot implementation" approach to other provinces and municipalities in the Pan-Pearl River Delta region, including Guangxi, could further enhance the co-operation between Hong Kong and Guangxi.
