     The Financial Secretary, Mr John C Tsang, today (July 17) started his two-day visit to Guangzhou and Dongguan to foster closer economic co-operation between Hong Kong and Guangdong Province.

     After arriving in Nansha Port in the morning, Mr Tsang first visited the Guangzhou Nansha Economic and Social Development Exhibition Hall to learn more about the positioning of Nansha as a national-grade new district.

     Nansha is listed among the key co-operation areas in the Framework Agreement on Hong Kong/Guangdong Co-operation and is one of the major co-operation projects among Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau under the dedicated chapter on Hong Kong and Macau in the National 12th Five-Year Plan.

     A lunch meeting was held with the Mayor of Guangzhou, Mr Chen Jianhua, and the Secretary of the CPC Nansha District Committee, Mr Ding Hongdu.

     In the afternoon, a tour of the Nansha Information Technology Park was arranged for Mr Tsang to see for himself the high-tech development there.

     Mr Tsang's next stop was the Nansha Bonded Port Area. It is the fifth bonded port area in China and the first in Guangdong Province to have passed the country's acceptance test.

     Last on Mr Tsang's programme in Nansha was a visit to a Hong Kong-funded enterprise specialising in automotive component products.

     This was followed by a dinner meeting with the Vice-Governor of Guangdong Province, Mr Chen Yunxian.  Mr Tsang said at the meeting that Hong Kong can make reference to Guangzhou on various fronts and added that Hong Kong and Guangdong should seek a win-win solution to further develop Renminbi business.

     Tomorrow (July 18), Mr Tsang will head for Dongguan for the second day of his visit.
