Hong Kong Chief Executive C. Y. Leung met with U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew at Government House on March 1. They discussed the state of the global economy and exchanged viewpoints on issues of mutual concern.

Mr. Leung said Hong Kong and the U.S. enjoy close economic and trade ties. Hong Kong, being an international financial and trade center, can act as a “super-connector” for U.S. enterprises to open more business opportunities in the mainland China market. He hopes that Hong Kong and the U.S. will continue to maintain exchanges and cooperation on various fronts.

Mr. Lew acknowledged the importance of Hong Kong’s role in bridging relations.  “Both the U.S. and China are responsible for an influence in the global economy,” he said. “It is clear how important Hong Kong is in playing a role in connecting China and the U.S. and the world."

Mr. Lew had earlier attended the G-20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting in Shanghai.
