Hong Kong is ideal for FinTech sector

Hong Kong, given its strengths – stability, opportunity and security, is the ideal place for the FinTech sector investment, said Director of HKETONY Joanne Chu when she addressed the opening of an InvestHK forum in Chicago (Sep 11).

In her first speaking engagement in the Windy City, she highlighted Hong Kong’s business-friendly environment and business opportunities for Chicago firms under the Belt and Road Initiative and in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Bay Area.

Noting the recent celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, which saw the inauguration of the fifth term Hong Kong SAR Government, led by the city’s first female Chief Executive Carrie Lam, Ms Chu pointed out that Hong Kong has continued to prosper amid a stable political environment under the "One Country,Two Systems" principle over the last 20 years. "With strong fiscal reserves and good credit ratings, we remain a shining beacon of free trade, open markets, the rule of law, judicial independence, low taxes, a level playing field for local and foreign companies, a high degree of transparency, and a society with a low tolerance for corruption," she added.

Head of FinTech of Invest Hong Kong Charles d’Haussy spoke on the Hong Kong’s thriving FinTech ecosystem and the city’s role as a “superconnector” to Mainland China and beyond. The attendees, about 40 business executives, were interested in how to set up a startup company in Hong Kong; and in government support programs such as the IT Venture Fund.
