A business seminar (Feb 19) featuring senior government officials and business and legal executives on the business opportunities that Hong Kong offers has highlighted the city’s strategic roles and advantages in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Hong Kong Commissioner for Economic and Trade Affairs, USA, Eddie Mak, said that with Hong Kong’s deepening economic integration with the Mainland, the Bay Area and the Belt and Road Initiative offer enormous potential in trade, investment and commerce for US businesses. The seminar was jointly held by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York and Invest Hong Kong, in partnership with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, the Hong Kong Association of Florida, Swire Properties, Miami-Dade Beacon Council, and Enterprise Florida in Miami for the first time. It was followed by a Chinese New Year reception hosted by HKETONY.
While in Miami, Mr Mak called on Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, updating him on the latest developments in Hong Kong and exploring future collaborations. He has also met the President of World Trade Center Miami Charlotte Gallogly.
