     The Financial Secretary, Mr John C Tsang, today (October 11, Washington, DC, time) attended the plenary session of the Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group in Washington, DC, as a member of the Chinese delegation.

     The Annual Meetings each year bring together central bankers, ministers of finance and development, private sector executives and academics to discuss issues of global concern, including the world economic outlook, poverty eradication and economic development.

     At a luncheon hosted by the Brookings Institution after the plenary session, Mr Tsang spoke on Hong Kong's unique advantages in areas such as offshore Renminbi business and its competitive edge as a business-friendly city in Asia. He urged US businesses to make good use of Hong Kong's strengths as the world's freest economy and its position on the doorstep of Mainland China.
     In the evening, Mr Tsang attended a reception for the Hong Kong community in Washington, DC.

     Mr Tsang will leave Washington, DC, tomorrow (October 12, Washington, DC, time) and arrive in Hong Kong in the morning of Monday (October 14).
