     Ve Interactive, a multiple award-winning e-commerce technology company from the UK, announced today (May 14) that its regional headquarters in Hong Kong has officially opened to target demand in the fast growing e-commerce markets in the Asia-Pacific Region.

     The opening of Ve's headquarters in Hong Kong is part of the company's regional expansion strategy. The Hong Kong office is going to double its number of staff members to help manage flourishing businesses throughout Southeast Asia and Mainland China. Ve also plans to set up offices in Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Gurgaon and other cities in Asia in the near future to strengthen support for their clients in the region.

     Founding investor and Regional Chief Executive Officer of Ve Interactive Mr Charles Allard Jr said, "With a growing client base in Mainland China and the entire Asia region, we are looking for an advantageous location to base our support services. Hong Kong provides us with the intellectual capital, legal infrastructure, geographic proximity and international outlook that other cities do not offer. Hence, there is no doubt that Hong Kong is our choice as a business hub."

     He added, "Ve Interactive aims to not only better serve our existing clients in the region, but also develop new applications to stimulate business growth. Hong Kong is simply desirable to have a deep pool of talent to support our businesses in different aspects, be it technical support or account services. I am happy to have chosen Hong Kong to start our business."

     Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion Mr Charles Ng congratulated Ve Interactive on its new regional headquarters in Hong Kong and said, "Hong Kong is a major communications hub in the Asia-Pacific region with world-class telecommunications infrastructure and connectivity that provides a perfect platform for e-commerce, omni-channel retailing and marketing businesses. Our city is an excellent regional base for multinational companies that want to ride on this thriving business trend to expand their business in Asia Pacific's high-growth markets."
