*********************************************************

     Invest Hong Kong (InvestHK) hosted a seminar in Chongqing today (April 29) during the Chongqing Hong Kong Week 2014. InvestHK's representatives explained the business advantages of Hong Kong and encouraged Chongqing enterprises to use the city as the platform from which to promote their brands and expand globally.

     The seminar entitled "Hong Kong íV Platform to Go Global" was organised by InvestHK in partnership with the Trade Office of the Economic Affairs Department of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government (CPGLO) in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR); Chongqing Liaison Unit of the HKSAR Government; and Chongqing Foreign Trade and Economic Relations Commission. Supporting organisations included Chongqing State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission as well as Chongqing Federation of Industry and Commerce.

     Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion, Miss Victoria Tang; the Deputy Director-General of the Economic Affairs Department and Head of the Commerce Office of the CPGLO in the HKSAR, Mr Yang Yi; Director-General of the Chongqing Liaison Unit, Mr Chris Ng; and Director-General of Chongqing Foreign Trade and Economic Relations Commission, Mr Xu Qiang, delivered remarks at the event.

     Commenting on Hong Kong's business advantages and the opportunities it has to offer Chongqing companies, Miss Tang said, "Chongqing has seen fast economic development in recent years on the back of its enhancing economic fundamentals. Hong Kong and Chongqing have close economic ties, and Hong Kong is also a key conduit of foreign investment in and out of Chongqing, offering a reliable platform for Chongqing enterprises to go global."

     Miss Tang added, "The internationalisation of Chongqing enterprises has become inevitable as Mainland enterprises are encouraged to go global. Hong Kong is an international city with extensive marketing networks, world-class financial markets, and free flows of capital and information. Our city offers a wide range of quality professional services in listing and financing, accounting, law, banking services, brand building and so on, which meet the needs of Mainland enterprises in their global expansion."

     Other speakers at the seminar included Deputy Representative, Southern China, Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing Ltd, Ms Angela Liu; Assistant General Manager, Corporate Banking and Financial Institutions, Bank of China (Hong Kong), Mr Marvin Lo; Creative Director, Tommy Li Design Workshop, Mr Tommy Li; and Secretary of the Board, Lifan Group, Mr Tang Xiaodong. The speakers spoke about Hong Kong's business advantages in their respective fields and encouraged Chongqing enterprises to expand overseas using Hong Kong's facilities and services.
