HONG KONG, Feb 20, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – The Director-General of Investment Promotion at Invest Hong Kong (InvestHK), the Government of HKSAR, People’s Republic of China, Mr Stephen Phillips, today (February 20) started his duty visit to Bangkok as part of the latest efforts to promote Hong Kong’s business opportunities.
During the visit, Mr Phillips will meet with start-ups and companies from fintech, transport, infrastructure and advanced manufacturing, tourism and hospitality, and consumer products sectors to discuss their plans of setting up or expanding in Hong Kong.
He will also speak at the panel discussion, “Digital FDI & Innovation”, at the World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (WAIPA) APAC IPAS Investment Conference, and host two briefings for Thai start-up communities themed on the latest developments and initiatives in Hong Kong, and the vibrant start-up landscape and opportunities in the city, respectively.
Mr Phillips said, “Hong Kong is the only place in the world where the global advantage and the China advantage come together in a single city. This unique convergence makes Hong Kong the irreplaceable connection between the Mainland and the rest of the world.
The city is an ideal location for overseas and Mainland companies, as well as entrepreneurs from around the world, as a base to set up or expand their business in Hong Kong, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA), China, and more widely in Asia.”
He added, “Hong Kong offers Thai companies a wide range of opportunities, and routes to growth. I look forward to sharing the latest business chapter in Hong Kong with company representatives and entrepreneurs, and in particular, how they can leverage Hong Kong to seize greater opportunities, including those arising from the GBA.”
