“As an international logistics centre, Hong Kong has a long pedigree in every competitive advantage for meeting the increasing demand in logistics services brought by the booming trade volume along the Belt and Road and Bay Area regions.”  

Dr. Raymond So Wai-man, BBS, JP, Under Secretary for Transport and Housing

 

“The key to propel the trade and logistics development in the regions is to ease the flow of people, goods, capital and information. I believe to facilitate the flow of goods and information, standardisation is the essential component to harmonise and facilitate collaboration across regions to create more efficient, safe and sustainable value chains.”

Ms Anna Lin, JP, Chief Executive of GS1 Hong Kong

 

As the Belt and Road Initiative and Greater Bay Area are gaining momentum, Hong Kong has a key role to play in both initiatives given our strong global connectivity, well-established institutional strengths, and competitive edges in trade, finance, and innovation.

To capitalise on the opportunities, our Forum invited prominent speakers from the HKSAR Government, Chinese administrations and APEC representatives, as well as business leaders who are specialising in information connectivity, trade and logistics, to dwell on the initiatives and plans in promoting innovations in the Bay Area and Belt & Road countries.

The video highlights will be ready soon, stay tuned!
