     HKTE will stage an exhibition area at the Expo to promote Hong Kong’s unique advantages and development opportunities, various talent admission schemes as well as HKTE's support services, coupled with experience sharing by incoming talent on settling in the city.

In addition, some exhibitors will provide visiting talent and their families with consultation services and settling-in solutions or offers, with a view to helping them move to Hong Kong, adapt smoothly and stay in the city for development.
