16 Jun 2017

On 15 June 2017, the Xi'an-Hong Kong Economic Exchange Meeting and Inauguration of Hong Kong Xi'an Trade Association kicked off in Hong Kong. Mr. Wang Yongkang, member of the Standing Committee of the Shaanxi People's Congress and the Communist Party Secretary of Xi'an, addressed the meeting.

 

Qiu Hong, Associate Director of Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region; Luo Xi, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors and General Manager of China Resources Group; Francis HO, Associate Director-General of Invest Hong Kong; and Yang Sunxi, Board Chair of Heung Kong Group attended the meeting with rest of the delegation from Xi'an.

 

Mr. Wang says, the Xi'an-Hong Kong Economic Exchange Meeting echoes the highlights in President Xi Jinping's speeches, especially his speech at Belt and Road Forum in May this year. President Xi Jinping called for enhanced cooperation and communication in more sectors, and a better resource planning and allocation in wider ranges. This offers Xi'an a higher platform for its development and opening-up, a fast lane to become a flagship of landlocked reform and opening-up.

 

As Belt and Road Initiative progresses, Mr. Wang points out, Xi'an, a gateway toward the west, steps in a golden era for development. The upcoming years promise Xi'an opportunities in transforming into Greater Xi'an, Belt and Road Free Trade Zone, National Central City, and an international metropolis. It brings investment opportunities and potential for development.  Xi'an welcomes entrepreneurs both at home and abroad, in all sectors to invest and start their business. Xi'an promises to continuously improve business environment and facilities.

 

After the Meeting, Wang Yongkang visited the headquarters of Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce and Da Tang Xi Shi Group (Hong Kong), and conducted meetings with representatives from Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce, Da Tang Xi Shi Group (Hong Kong), and CITIC Group.
