AND YOU CAN QUOTE ME: The ‘So French So Innovative’ Pavilion features some 30 French companies. It’s been a fantastic experience here. The expo has got the right traffic and we are able to engage with the right people in different sectors to explore business opportunities. The participating French companies are very impressed with the tremendous opportunities presented by the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The feedback has been very positive. We really enjoy working with HKTDC. Their staff are very helpful and professional, providing customer oriented services to ensure that everything goes well throughout the expo. It’s very important to find the right partner in order to be successful.
