     Hong Kong Talent Engage (HKTE) today (April 11) announced that the Global Talent Summit · Hong Kong will be held May 7 and 8 in the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

     The Chief Executive set out in the 2023 Policy Address that a summit would be organised to promote regional exchanges and co-operation in talent attraction. The Director of HKTE, Mr Anthony Lau, said, "The Summit will bring together international and Mainland leaders from political, academic, business and other sectors to exchange trends and experiences in talent development, with a view to promoting Hong Kong's dual role and advantages as an international talent hub and our country's gateway for talent."

     The Summit will comprise three parts, namely the International Talent Forum on May 7, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) High-quality Talent Development Conference on May 8 and the CareerConnect Expo to be held on both days concurrently. The Summit will bring together Mainland and overseas government representatives, scholars, business leaders and representatives of various trades and human resources agencies, aiming to showcase Hong Kong's distinctive advantages of enjoying the strong support of the motherland and being closely connected to the world under the "one country, two systems" principle, as well as the charm of an international talent hub to the world. The Summit will also promote talent exchanges and co-operation in the international arena and the GBA to forge ahead with the high-quality development of Hong Kong and the GBA, and build a superb talent hub in the region together.

     In addition, the Expo will enable international, local and regional strategic enterprises and partners to present to participants and global talent the opportunities of Hong Kong and the Mainland as well as development prospects of various sectors.
