CE meets Governor of Gansu Province (with photo)
     The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, held a breakfast meeting with the Governor of Gansu Province, Mr Tang Renjian, at Government House this morning (April 27).

     Mrs Lam welcomed Mr Tang on his first visit to Hong Kong and congratulated the Government of Gansu Province for successfully hosting the Gansu Investment Introduction and Marketing Event yesterday (April 26). Noting that Gansu Province, situated on the Silk Road Economic Belt, is a trade and logistics hub and a key base for industries and exchanges between people in the region, and that over 1 000 Hong Kong enterprises have investments in Gansu Province, Mrs Lam said she believes that trade and economic ties between the two places will increase under the Belt and Road Initiative. As Gansu Province strives to develop industries such as tourism, Chinese medicine, agriculture and innovation and technology, she expressed the hope that the two places will strengthen co-operation in these aspects and encouraged Gansu enterprises to leverage on Hong Kong's quality professional services to access overseas markets. She also invited Gansu Province to organise activities in Hong Kong and promote Gansu culture and products to Hong Kong people.

     She thanked the Government of Gansu Province for its staunch support for Hong Kong's work on youth development and facilitating exchanges for young Hong Kong people in the Mainland, such as the successful completion of a training programme for Dunhuang cultural ambassadors last year, which was well received by youths in Hong Kong. She said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will build on that successful experience and organise the Dunhuang Youth Internship Programme this year, which will last for six weeks, adding that she expects this year's programme will be just as successful with the support and thoughtful arrangements of the Government of Gansu Province.
