Hong Kong – Export Destination – Pathway to China Trade

With an economy larger than that of Ireland and Israel and a GDP per capita higher than that of the USA, Hong Kong is an import export destination in its own right. Perhaps more importantly it also offers an attractive point of entry for companies wishing to approach markets in mainland China. The local business community is attuned to British business culture with strong historic links and a positive attitude to trade with UK. This is a market where we can be confident of a warm welcome and a familiar approach to co-operation and partnership.

The event is aimed at businesses that are looking to enter or increase their exposure to Hong Kong, China and the economies of South and South East Asia.  Leading representatives of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and Hong Kong Invest will present the business environment and describe where opportunities lie across the broad span of business sectors.  The area of Life Science and Technology will be addressed by the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park’s London team who will inform us on the drive to develop Hong Kong as a leading player in the region.

With contributions from The Hong Kong University MBA programme and a presentation by Gerry Osborn, Deputy Director of the Hong Kong Independent Commission on Corruption, delegates will learn much of the inner workings of this vibrant centre of business in the Orient.

The event takes place early evening and the venue is close to the A14 at Impington on the outskirts of Cambridge. A substantial buffet will sustain participants through an intense programme and time will be provided for networking with delegates and speakers and guests from Hong Kong.
