Financial Secretary Paul Chan said on Sunday that the biggest business chamber in Indonesia is planning to visit Hong Kong early next year to explore more development opportunities for both sides.
He said that was part of what he achieved during his trip to last week’s G20 summit in Bali, during which he discussed strengthening trade ties with representatives from a number of different governments.
Chan said the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry are actively preparing a high-level delegation to visit Hong Kong next year, and he’s invited some Indonesians he met in Bali to attend the Asian Financial Forum here in January.
The finance chief said as the SAR gradually resumes connections with the international community, officials will make more trips around the world to tell the good Hong Kong story and look for more investment and development opportunities.
He stressed the government will do more to promote business and trade to strengthen the SAR’s status as a global trading hub, including stepping up efforts to join the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership as soon as possible.
