Hong Kong trade seminars set for this summer
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, April 16, 2013
New York - The Hong Kong Trade Development Council is hosting its largest promotion in the U.S. this summer with free seminars in New York and Los Angeles for companies looking to tap into business in Asia, particularly on the Chinese mainland.
"Think Asia, Think Hong Kong" symposiums will take place in New York June 11 and Los Angeles June 14. Speakers will include CY Leung, chief executive of the Hong Kong SAR Government, and more than 60 senior executives from global companies. Fourteen 14 Hong Kong partners and close to 100 US organizations are supporting the development council's program.
"As the global economic balance continues to shift to Asia, Hong Kong is the ideal business platform from which to access the myriad regional opportunities now available in the growing ASEAN area and the Chinese mainland," said HKTDC chairman Jack So. "Our low taxes, free economy, rule of law, English-speaking environment and world-class business services make us the preferred partner for any overseas businesses wishing to tap these growing possibilities."
As of October 2012, there were 869 US companies with their regional headquarters or regional offices in Hong Kong, more than any other country, according to the development council.
More than 100 Hong Kong government officials and business leaders from a wide spectrum of sectors, including lifestyle products, fashion, food and wine, technology, finance, accounting, legal, logistics and marketing, will take part in "Think Asia, Think Hong Kong." Business-matching sessions will be organized with US companies onsite.
