WHAT: The Hong Kong Trade Development Council has launched a dedicated website on China’s Belt and Road Initiative to help global business seize opportunities arising from Beijing’s trade and economic development plan.
WHEN: 7 December 2015
WHY: Available in English, traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese, the Belt and Road Portal serves as a business facilitation and market intelligence platform to help businesses make important decisions related to the Initiative. It also highlights the benefits of leveraging Hong Kong’s position as a major financial, logistics, investment, trade and commercial hub.
The online site features a carefully selected, researched and verified collection of related news and analyses, up-to-date official documents, information on investment projects on the Chinese mainland and in the countries along the Belt and Road routes, as well as video features on various topics related to the Initiative.
A key feature under the section “How Hong Kong Can Help” highlights Hong Kong’s unique capabilities in presenting a range of the city’s most reputed services providers in the financial, professional and infrastructure development sectors. The database’s search function enables businesses to connect with relevant counterparts based in Hong Kong that have been assessed and identified with the expertise and project experiences relevant to the Belt and Road Initiative.
Businesses can also make use of the “Advisory Service” to apply online for consultation service with Hong Kong professional institutions and services providers covering the areas of accounting, finance, infrastructure development and law.
WHO: The Portal has been made possible with the support of leading professional institutions and services providers in Hong Kong, international media partners, as well as businesses and organisations, including KPMG, Hang Seng Bank and Xinhua News.
And You Can Quote Me: “The Belt and Road Initiative is a game-changer for Asia and the world. The HKTDC plays the role of catalyst in Hong Kong’s position as a “super-connector” under the Initiative. With our vast international network and contact with industry leaders, government organisations and industry associations, we are devising a series of programmes to facilitate connectivity and business integration for the Belt and Road era.” (HKTDC Chairman Vincent Lo)
