“E-trading and logistics business are like modern Santa Claus. Santa has to capture all different gift ideas… from children around the globe. He has to keep track how his magical elves are fabricating the numerous gifts. He has to monitor the inventory level and then make countless trips to deliver the right gifts to the right kids…And Belt and Road Initiative will further improve the process…and Hong Kong has a unique role to play in trading and logistics.” 

 

Dr. Bernard Chan, Under Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Commerce & Economic Bureau, HKSAR Government
