Director promotes business and trade ties in Alabama

On his first official visit to Alabama, January 21-22, Director of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, New York (HKETONY), Steve Barclay, called on Lieutenant Governor Kay Ivey to exchange views on mutual cooperation between Hong Kong and the state.

Mr. Barclay also met Alabama’s Secretary of Commerce Greg Canfield and Alabama’s Director of International Trade Hilda Lockhart to update them on the latest developments in Hong Kong and to explore future business and trade partnership.

During his meetings with the various government agencies and business groups, Mr. Barclay encouraged Alabama business to look into Hong Kong as they explore expansions or exports overseas, highlighting Hong Kong’s unique gateway role between Mainland China and the United States as well as the city’s business-friendly tax structure and legal system.

Addressing students at Auburn University in Montgomery, Mr. Barclay spoke on economic and business prospects in Hong Kong and encouraged the students to explore study and job opportunities in Hong Kong.

In his remarks, the Director also said that the Hong Kong government has just launched the second stage of consultation exercise on the electoral arrangements to implement “one-person, one-vote” for the Chief Executive election in 2017, bringing Hong Kong one step closer to the goal of selecting the Chief Executive by universal suffrage.
