Business luncheon held in Singapore to celebrate 25th anniversary of establishment of HKSAR
The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Singapore (Singapore ETO) held a business luncheon in Singapore on June 21 to share with the business community the latest developments and opportunities in Hong Kong. Around 75 business leaders and executives attended the event in person, while other participants joined online.
Co-organized with the Hong Kong Singapore Business Association, the event was part of the Singapore ETO's celebratory events for the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
In his event address, the Director of the Singapore ETO, Wong Chun To, pointed out that Hong Kong was blessed with immense opportunities under various strategies and initiatives promulgated by the Central Government, notably the National 14th Five-Year Plan, which supports Hong Kong's development of eight international centers and emerging industries.
"As Asia's leading world-class city and one of the world's most competitive economies, Hong Kong will continue to be the prime partner for businesses to tap the vast business potential in Mainland China, in particular, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and beyond," Wong added.
During the luncheon, the 25th-anniversary theme song "Heading Forward" was also screened. Featuring a total of 28 local and Mainland singers, the song encourages young people to seize new opportunities for Hong Kong made possible by the country, and work together to enable Hong Kong to move forward in sustaining prosperity and stability.
The Singapore ETO will continue to organize a series of events in the coming months to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR.
