HKETO Berlin hosts Hong Kong community gatherings in Berlin and Vienna (with photos)
     The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Berlin (HKETO Berlin) held gatherings for members of the Hong Kong community in Berlin, Germany, and Vienna, Austria, on April 1 (Berlin time) and 3 (Vienna time) respectively.
     About 200 Hong Kong residents attended the gatherings, including those who have been living, working or studying in Berlin or Vienna, as well as young people who joined the working holiday schemes agreed between Hong Kong and Germany and between Hong Kong and Austria.
     At the gatherings, the Director of HKETO Berlin, Mr Bill Li, introduced the latest developments in Hong Kong, especially the completion of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and the Hong Kong Section of the Express Rail Link, which both greatly enhance Hong Kong's connectivity with the Mainland of China. With the many opportunities coming up in Hong Kong, he also encouraged the young people to make good use of their stays in Europe to widen their exposure and develop an international perspective, and said he looked forward to welcoming them in Hong Kong in their future pursuit of careers and aspirations. Moreover, Mr Li wished the Hong Kong community in the two places a happy and prosperous Year of the Pig.
