Excellent Business Places

Hong Kong and Shenzhen are excellent places to do business
香港和深圳分別是營商的好地方

Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Berlin (HKETO, Berlin), Mr Stephen Wong, addressed dinner guests following the Hong Kong-Shenzhen joint promotion seminar in Munich on June 9 (Munich).

"Taken individually, Hong Kong and Shenzhen are excellent places to do business. Taken together they represent an unbeatable combination. Hong Kong is part of China. At the same time, Hong Kong enjoys a high degree of autonomy as a distinctly different part of China. Our traditional role of acting as a bridge between East and West, far from fading after 1997 as some suggested it might, is if anything stronger than ever," he said.

He noted that Hong Kong and Shenzhen are located in the Greater Peal River Delta (PRD), which includes Hong Kong, Macau and the PRD Economic Development Zone portion of Guangdong Province (Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Jiangmen, Dongguan, Zhongshan, parts of Huizhou and Zhaoqing) and has a total population of some 55 million. With its total gross domestic product and exports exceeding USD 665 billion and USD 751 billion respectively, the Greater PRD is China's most affluent region and has a rapidly expanding purchasing power.

The seminar, co-hosted by Invest Hong Kong and the Science, Industry, Trade and Information Technology Commission (SITIC) of Shenzhen Municipality, was designed to highlight the latest business opportunities and current economic environment in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Companies have benefited from establishing their regional headquarters in Hong Kong and making use of this strategic location at the centre of Asia to oversee their manufacturing facilities and sales operations in the Greater PRD and the wider Asia region. Case studies and practical tips were presented. The seminar served as an excellent opportunity to network with high-level government officials and business executives.

  香港駐柏林經濟貿易辦事處(駐柏林經貿辦)處長黃繼兒慕尼黑時間六月九日於當地的香港深圳聯合研討會晚宴上向嘉賓致歡迎辭時說:「香港和深圳分別是營商的好地方;兩城市合起來是無與倫比的組合。香港是中國的一部份,也是享有高度自治權的地方。我們作為東西方橋樑的角色自一九九七年以來不只沒有褪色而是更加明顯。」

  香港和深圳位於大珠江三角洲(珠三角),其中包括香港、澳門和廣東省珠江三角洲經濟開發區(廣州、深圳、珠海、佛山、江門、東莞、中山、部份惠州市和肇慶),人口總計約五千五百萬。憑藉其六千六百五十億美元的國內生產總值和七千五百一十億美元的出口總額,珠三角是中國最富裕的地區之一,其購買力迅速擴大。

  這次由香港投資推廣處和深圳市科技工貿和信息化委員會聯合舉辦的研討會旨在介紹香港和深圳最新的商機和經濟發展。受惠處於亞洲中心優越的地理位置,在香港設立地區總部的公司能夠監察其在珠三角及亞洲區的生產設施和銷售業務。此外,研討會也提供案例研究和實用竅門,是一個讓高級政府官員和商務行政人員建立合作關系的極好機會。
