Hong Kong and Canada have benefited from a long history of friendship and strong economic links. Canadian businesses in Hong Kong have contributed significantly to the development of our economy and the growing Canadian community is a testament to our cultural diversity.
Ranked number two in Foreign Direct Investment, Hong Kong is becoming a hotspot for multinational corporation headquarters, a launching pad for new start-ups, and the ‘super-connector’ for Mainland China companies to “Go Global”. Join Dr. Simon Galpin, Director-General of InvestHK and Dr. Tony Chan, President of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as they discuss how Hong Kong is a super-connector for business, investments, talent and technology.
When you are in Hong Kong, you are in the heart of Asia – a market with tremendous potential with unique access to China. Under the ‘One Country, Two Systems’ arrangement, Hong Kong is not just a gateway to Mainland China but is a super-connector for Mainland China companies. Mainland Chinese companies make use of Hong Kong’s advantages as an international financial centre and seize the opportunity to “Go Global” using the professional services of many local and international firms in Hong Kong.
Hosted by the Toronto Board of Trade. This presents an opportunity for Canadian professional service firms, architects, consultants, branding and design consultancies to come to Hong Kong to support Mainland Chinese firms with their global expansion.
