CE promotes HK's trading platform in Brazil (18.4.2012)
Chief Executive Donald Tsang has wrapped up his three-nation visit to New Zealand, Chile and Brasil, ending with a visit to BM&FBOVESPA in Sao Paulo, one of the world's largest stock exchanges. There, he held talks with the bourse's Chief Executive Officer Edemir Pinto. Addressing the local financial sector at a breakfast hosted by HSBC Brazil, Mr Tsang said Hong Kong intends to develop products to track BRICS - for Brazil, Russia, India, China - exchanges, which would give investors more exposure to the investment opportunities in Hong Kong's dynamic markets. "Another attractive option is to list on our stock market. Brazilian firms wishing to raise capital in Hong Kong can launch initial public offerings or secondary listings or issue depository receipts," he said. ( http://j.mp/J1j7BN )
HK, ASEAN sign free trade deal (12.11.2017)
Hong Kong and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations signed a free trade agreement and a related investment agreement today to bring about legal certainty and better market access for goods and services trade as well as investment protection to Hong Kong. Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau signed the two agreements with the economic ministers of the ASEAN member states in Pasay City, the Philippines. The pacts encompass investment, economic and technical co-operation, and dispute settlement mechanisms. The free trade deal also facilitates arrangements for the entry and stay of Hong Kong companies and service providers doing business in ASEAN member states. The agreements are expected to come into effect on January 1, 2019, at the earliest, subject to the completion of necessary procedures by Hong Kong and the ASEAN member states. Noting ASEAN is Hong Kong's second largest trading partner in merchandise trade and the fourth largest in services trade, Mr Yau said the two pacts are very important for the city. "All ASEAN member states are also economies along the Belt & Road. The agreements will extend Hong Kong's FTA and investment agreement network to cover all major economies in Southeast Asia. The closer ties forged will enhance Hong Kong's role as a trading and investment hub and cater for our strategy to tap the business opportunities offered by the Belt & Road Initiative," Mr Yau said.

HK ideal for wine trade (8.11.2018)
Many of you may already have local partners here or some of you may be looking for exploration of new terrain. Now, with Hong Kong as a gateway to the flourishing Asia-Pacific wine market, you will find us an ideal testing ground for you to establish a foothold and expand your market share in our part of the world. Not only do we charge no wine duty, GST (goods & services tax) or VAT (value-added tax), Hong Kong is also well known for our world-class commercial infrastructure for the wine industry and business to thrive. We have multi-talented wine and culinary professionals, sommeliers, and the world's first wine storage certification scheme, just to name a few. Now, speaking of the Mainland market, which is indeed our top wine re-export destination, we have shipped more than HK$2.2 billion worth of bottles in the first eight months of this year. Apart from our obvious proximity and our thorough knowledge of the Mainland market, wine traders based in Hong Kong can also enjoy instant customs clearance when they move the wines into the Mainland under our wine customs facilitation scheme. Hong Kong has been maintaining close relationship and partnership with major wine-producing countries and regions. The success of the fair bears testimony to the fruits, or rather vintages, of such co-operation over the years. And I understand that 11 years ago, we started with 200 exhibitors and now we have 1,075 today. We believe that our new memorandum of understanding with the Bordeaux region will further foster ties between the two places. Acting Financial Secretary James Lau gave these remarks at the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair 2018 opening ceremony on November 8. (http://j.mp/2OzFpzK)
HK Aus conclude trade talks (15.11.2018)
Hong Kong and Australia announced today the successful conclusion of negotiations on a free trade agreement and an investment agreement after reaching a consensus on both. Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau today met Australian Minister for Trade, Tourism & Investment Simon Birmingham, who is also attending the 30th APEC Ministerial Meeting in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea to discuss the two agreements between Hong Kong and Australia. After the meeting, they signed the Declaration of Intent to signify the successful conclusion of the negotiations. Mr Yau said Hong Kong and Australia are two like-minded economies in pursuit of free trade, adding Australia is also a very important Hong Kong trading partner. He said Hong Kong has set clear objectives in launching the free trade agreement negotiations to achieve zero tariffs for Hong Kong products to the Australian market, and to secure Australia's best free trade agreement commitments for Hong Kong services. “Our objectives are largely met with the successful conclusion of the negotiation of the very comprehensive free trade agreement and investment agreement today, thereby bringing our bilateral trade and investment relationship with Australia to a new height," Mr Yau said. He added, the two agreements encompass trade in goods, trade in services, investment and other related areas, providing Hong Kong with legal certainty and better access to the Australian market. The agreements also create business opportunities and further enhance trade and investment flows between the two places, Mr Yau said, adding Hong Kong's economy stands to benefit from the two agreements. Hong Kong and Australia expect to sign both agreements in the first half of 2019, after completion of the respective internal procedures. Mr Yau said: "To help Hong Kong enterprises and investors expand their markets, further reinforce Hong Kong's status as an international trade and investment hub and establish our worldwide network of economic and trade connections, we have been actively seeking to negotiate and forge free trade agreements and investment agreements with economies that have strong economic and trade connections with Hong Kong, markets with development potential or at strategic locations, as well as like-minded trading partners." In the past 12 months, the current term Government has signed three free trade agreements with 12 economies. It has also concluded negotiations for a free trade agreement with the Maldives. The free trade deals with Australia and the Maldives will bring the total number of such agreements Hong Kong has signed to nine, more than double the number signed prior to the current term.(http://j.mp/2ONbrse)

HK a business bridge: FS (2.12.2015)
Financial Secretary John Tsang Japan is Hong Kong's third-largest trading partner, and our third-largest source of imports. And, for nearly a decade now, Hong Kong has been Japan's top overseas market for exports of food as well as agricultural products. So we do love Japanese food. We know, of course, that Mainland China has been Japan's top trading partner for about a decade as well. But it's worth noting that Hong Kong - the business bridge between the Mainland and the world - plays a significant role in that trade. Last year, more than US$36 billion worth of trade between Japan and the Mainland was routed through Hong Kong. That represents nearly 12% of the total trade between Japan and the Mainland in 2014. We see investment promises, too. At the end of 2013, Japan was Hong Kong's eighth-largest source of inward direct investment, with a total of US$26.5 billion worth of investments. That strong statement of confidence in Hong Kong - as the gateway to Mainland markets, as the business hub of Asia and as a global financial centre - is reflected in Japan's corporate presence here.

HK-ASEAN trade pact to be signed (13.5.2017)
Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Gregory So said Hong Kong will sign a free trade pact with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations by the end of this year. Speaking to the media after attending a radio programme today, Mr So said ASEAN is Hong Kong's second-largest trading partner. "The Hong Kong – ASEAN Free Trade Agreement negotiation is progressing very well. We almost completed the negotiation on the major items. It is our plan that the agreement will be entered into by the end of this year. "The other economies will also have to follow the domestic agenda and procedures, before we will be in a position to sign this together. There are 10 countries involved plus Hong Kong, so time must be allowed to finish complying with all these procedures," Mr So said. (http://j.mp/2qcN0M6)

CE promotes HK in Belgium (15.6.2018)
Chief Executive Carrie Lam kicked off her duty visit to Europe in Brussels yesterday, promoting Hong Kong's ties with the European Union and Belgium's business community. She met European Commission Vice President and Union for Foreign Affairs & Security Policy High Representative Federica Mogherini. Mrs Lam said since its return to the motherland, Hong Kong has successfully implemented a high degree of autonomy with the principles of "one country, two systems" and "Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong". She noted Hong Kong has close ties with the European Union, with the Structured Dialogue meeting held every year. Mrs Lam said she hopes collaboration will continue to strengthen and welcomed scientific and research institutions from the EU to develop in Hong Kong. Addressing a business luncheon, she said Hong Kong is determined to become a global hub for innovation and technology, and play an important role in the Belt & Road Initiative and the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area. She welcomed European companies and startups to establish a presence in Hong Kong and ride on its unique advantages to explore business opportunities in Mainland China and Asia. At the luncheon, Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade & European Affairs Minister Didier Reynders said Belgian companies continue to view Hong Kong as one of the freest economies in the world. European Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom expressed her appreciation for Hong Kong's support in strengthening the multilateral trading system and said she looked forward to working together to advocate the benefits of open global trade. In the afternoon, Mrs Lam paid a courtesy call on King Philippe of the Belgians at the Royal Palace where she updated him on Hong Kong's latest developments. She later toured Musee Margritte and told the venue's director she looks forward to collaborating with the museum to bring its art collection to Hong Kong for exhibition. Mrs Lam also called on Charge d'affaires of Belgium's Chinese Embassy Zhang Chi to thank the embassy for its support and assistance. In the evening she officiated at a cocktail event organised by Cathay Pacific Airways and the Airport Authority. (http://j.mp/2HPt4UZ)

HK to grasp Belt-Road opportunities (24.2.2016)
Emerging markets are of growing importance in the global economy and Hong Kong needs to expand trading ties with the rest of the world and develop more markets for enterprises. Delivering his 2016-17 Budget today, Financial Secretary John Tsang said the Belt & Road Initiative is a strategy for long-term development and the emerging markets along the Belt-Road are likely to become the new impetus for Hong Kong’s future development. The Government will continue promotion efforts to deepen understanding of the business sector and the community of these new markets. He also plans to lead a business mission to Central Asia this year to gain first-hand knowledge about the development potential and business opportunities in the region. The Monetary Authority will establish an office to facilitate the financing of infrastructure projects and provide a platform for pooling the efforts of investors, banks and the financial sector to offer comprehensive financial services for various infrastructure projects. The Government and the Trade Development Council will organise the inaugural Belt & Road Summit in May to discuss and explore co-operation opportunities and the unique role Hong Kong can play. Mr Tsang said the Government will strive to pursue trade and investment agreements to expand Hong Kong’s commercial and trading networks, creating more favourable conditions for Hong Kong enterprises to access the Mainland and overseas markets. To cater for long-term air traffic demand and sustain Hong Kong’s competitiveness as an aviation hub, the Airport Authority is pressing ahead with the implementation of the three-runway system project. A “single window” for “one-stop” lodging of the 50-plus trade documents and submissions for trade declaration and customs clearance will be established to facilitate trade in goods. The Government will continue to promote mutual capital market access between Hong Kong and the Mainland, attract more corporate treasury centres to Hong Kong, strengthen publicity of the city’s capital market and develop green financial products, he added.

Greg So seeks ASEAN trade pact views (16.6.2014)
Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Gregory So met with local business groups today to seek their views on a proposed Hong Kong - ASEAN free trade agreement. Speaking to representatives from the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce, the Chinese Manufacturers' Association of Hong Kong, the Federation of Hong Kong Industries, the Hong Kong Chinese Importers' and Exporters' Association, and the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce, Mr So said such an agreement would boost the city's economic growth by allowing its goods, services and investments to access a larger market. "Forging a free trade agreement with ASEAN contributes to regional economic integration, which is beneficial to maintaining and enhancing Hong Kong's international profile and its role as a regional trading hub, as well as a gateway for trade and investment between ASEAN and the Mainland," he said. The Trade & Industry Department is currently consulting the public on the topic, before the Government commences formal negotiations with ASEAN in July. (http://j.mp/1jxV8cI)
HK a globalisation success story (24.3.2017)
Chief Executive CY Leung: Today, Hong Kong is the world’s seventh-largest exporter of merchandise trade and the 14th-largest exporter of commercial services. Last year, the total value of trade in goods came in at US$974 billion, and total trade in service amounted to US$172 billion. Trading and logistics contributes 22% of Hong Kong’s GDP, employing about 750,000 people.        So because of trade – free trade – we have been able to punch above our weight. Our experience clearly shows that free trade not only creates wealth and jobs, it also promotes innovation and competition, encourages savings and investments, and enables more goods and services to reach consumers at lower prices. It is no coincidence that Hong Kong is hailed as Asia’s “shopping paradise”, as well as the world’s second-largest recipient of foreign direct investment.        We will continue to uphold free trade. All the more in the age of globalisation and technology, where people, societies and businesses are increasingly bound together, fostering international collaboration and specialisation, as well as lowering transaction costs across national boundaries. While there may be temporary aberrations and setbacks for domestic political play, we believe that longer-term, trade globalisation is an irreversible trend. (http://j.mp/2odaOLO)

Hong Kong ivory carvers suffer as ban nears
(10 Feb 2017) The decline of Hong Kong's once-flourishing ivory business is set to accelerate even further as plans move ahead to ban domestic ivory trading in the city and in mainland China. In the ivory carving industry's heyday in the mid-1970s, Hong Kong factories employed as many as 3,500 carvers. Today however only half-a-dozen part-time carvers are left, along with 10 to 20 full-time mammoth tusk carvers, according to Save the Elephants - thanks to an international ban on trading that was imposed in 1990 that also led to carvers switching from elephant ivory to the tusks of extinct woolly mammoths. Lai-ngan Wong started carving ivory more than 50 years ago. Now aged 77, he says the industry is pretty much dead now. Beijing plans to start shutting China's ivory carving factories and shops by March and ban local sales by the end of 2017. Hong Kong's blueprint would end local trading by 2021. Those moves are raising pressure on European countries to do the same. Researchers say Hong Kong is the world's biggest retail ivory market. It's also a hub for illicit trading of all sorts of endangered wildlife. Customs officers make regular busts of illegal shipments of ivory, rhino horns and pangolin scales destined for the Chinese mainland. The crackdown on ivory is driven by concern over mass slaughter of Africa's elephants to meet demand from China, the world's biggest ivory consumer. According to one recent study, the continent's savannah elephant population fell 30 percent from 2007 to 2014, to 352,000. Chinese traditionally have prized ivory carved into bracelets, chopsticks and figurines. Rising demand from the country's growing middle class has driven up prices, earning it the nickname "white gold." A one-off auction of African ivory to Japan and China in 2008 also unintentionally helped fuel demand. Hong Kong has 72 shops whose licenses to sell ivory were obtained before the 1990 ban, according to a 2015 survey by Save the Elephants. Most buyers are mainland Chinese, who smuggle it back home, it found. There are also about 450 legally registered ivory traders in the city, the group found. Activists suspect some traders use their legal stockpiles to "launder" illegal ivory. They worry that the four-year gap between the enforcement of China's ban and Hong Kong's could encourage this. The problem "will be even more serious because as China is squeezing out its domestic trade, Hong Kong is still having an open market," said Cheryl Lo, a wildlife crime officer at the World Wildlife Fund. Traders in mainland China could be targeting Hong Kong to liquidate their stock or to ship it to other markets such as Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam and Thailand, which have fewer restrictions, she said. Hong Kong's traders say five years is not enough time to sell off their inventory. They want compensation if they have to give up their 75-ton stockpile of legally registered ivory worth billions of dollars. Officials have indicated that's not an option. Wong's employer, Daniel Chan, managing director of Lise Carving and Jewellery, says he doesn't know anything about illegal ivory. Chan's workshop is filled with hundreds of unsold shrink-wrapped ivory carvings of dragons and Buddha figurines. Department stores stopped selling Chan's ivory on consignment after protests by conservation groups, he complains. He denies the ivory industry is responsible for elephant deaths in Africa, despite clear evidence that poaching is the main factor. The ebbing ivory trade mirrors the decline of other crafts that once helped define Hong Kong's identity but have been pushed out by changing tastes, rising rents and new technology.

Hong Kong--Your Stepping Stone into China
Doing business in China through Hong Kong. Why Hong Kong? HK has a long history and experience of dealing with the rest of China. They know and understand their culture; they have that mixture of western-eastern knowledge, experience and history. The advantage of doing business in HK is that it’s a free trade city, you can move your assets as you like. HK has a favourable tax regime. There’s also the non-tax reasons, including free foreign exchange control; the ease of setting up in HK; the amount of talent and resources you can recruit in HK. One thing that’s really cool about Hong Kong is that they have a very liberal policy in terms of immigration. The people work in my company is like a rainbow, coming from all over the world. For a Canadian SME that hasn’t done any business in Asia before, I strongly recommend they spend a few years in HK first to have a better understanding of Asia. You, at your peril, ignore HK as a gateway to doing business in Asia, and in fact the world. Don’t ignore HK, unless you don’t want to make money. If you're a Canadian SME and have questions about doing business in China, please send us your questions by email at [email protected] All services of the Trade Commissioner Service are FREE of charge to qualified Canadian clients.
Post-COP24 HK Forum | Hong Kong perspective by Dr. Agnes Wong
In addressing issues raised from COP24, Dr. Agnes Wong from Environmental Protection Department, HKSAR Government, gave a speech on the Hong Kong perspectives. 📰For more upcoming events: https://envr.ust.hk/events-and-media/events-and-seminars.html 🌳Event Background🌳 Two decisions in the 2015 Paris Agreement made COP24 special: 1. Asking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to report by COP24 on the benefit of keeping temperature increases to 1.5°C rather than the previous objective of 2°C. Secondly on how this can be done. The IPCC has reported that: • The climate system is more sensitive than previously thought and there are very significant benefits from keeping global average temperature increase to 1.5°C rather than 2°C. • Keeping temperature increase to 1.5°C is geo-physically possible but requires rapid action to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. 2. Tasking COP24 with finishing the ‘Paris Rulebook’: The Paris Agreement used constructive ambiguity to allow countries with different views to sign up. Agreeing the Rulebook required eliminating these ambiguities. Contrary to expectations, COP24 succeeded in agreeing rules on reporting of emissions, stock-takes on progress in mitigation, adaptation, financial flows, addressing loss and damage, and boosting the ambition of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). The only significant area it had to postpone until next year was agreeing rules on international carbon trading (Article 6). 🌳Event Highlights🌳 Governments’ actions following COP24: • How will implementing the Paris Rulebook affect China and Hong Kong? • What will be done to raise ambition on reducing carbon emissions given the IPCC’s 1.5°C report? • China’s action including its national carbon trading scheme for electricity generation. • The Silesian Declaration on Just Transition. Private sector action to decarbonize Hong Kong given the IPCC’s advice that global carbon-neutrality is needed by 2050 to keep global average temperature increase to 1.5°C: • How can engineering our city and buildings reduce Hong Kong carbon emissions? • How will Hong Kong, as a financial services center, play a role in the investment needed regionally to create a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy? • How can Hong Kong move to zero carbon electricity by 2050? • How will the Hong Kong’s Council for Sustainable Development’s public consultation gather views on Hong Kong’s long-term decarbonization?’
Tall Order: Asia's Newest Logistics Facility Goes Online in Hong Kong
Hong Kong's new 24-story Goodman Interlink building is the world's tallest logistics facility -- and one the largest developments of its kind to spring up in Asia in the past few years. Australian property group Goodman started the US$644 million (HK$5bln) project in 2009 amid global economic uncertainty, but by its 6 March 2012 opening the centre was nearly fully leased -- reflecting Hong Kong's solid place as a regional logistics hub.

Hong Kong Protect Baby Formula Supply from Mainlanders
As the Chinese New Years travel season gets underway, health conscious Mainlanders are making last minute trips to Hong Kong. They are there for something you might not expect—baby milk formula. The melamine-tainted milk scandal that sickened hundreds of thousands of babies is still fresh in the public conscious. So, the demand in China for safe, regulated milk powder from Hong Kong has skyrocketed. The only problem--Hong Kong babies are going hungry. Smugglers have flooded the city. They're buying up baby formula tax-free and selling it for big profits in the mainland. [Lai Tung-Kwok, Secretary for Security]: "In view of the latest situation, the Customs and Excise Department, and their Shenzhen counterpart, have, with immediate effect, have further strengthened its enforcement efforts by launching a joint, anti-smuggling operation among daily commodities, especially baby formula." Passengers travelling between Hong Kong and Mainland China by train will now be limited to only 50lbs of luggage, down from 70. They're also now limited to just four pounds of milk powder per trip. It's gotten so bad that Hong Kong citizens are even petitioning US President Barack Obama for help. But local distributers are also doing their part to help. [Teddy Li, Taylor Dispensary Limited Staff]: "We try our best to differentiate between the local customers - people who really need the products - and parallel traders. Usually the parallel traders ask for many brands and many types. We just tell them we have no stocks left. We want to take care of the local users." The Year of the Snake, which officially begins on the Chinese New Years on February 10th, will see many convenience stores and shops closedown over the weeklong holiday.

HK, India can explore prospects (5.2.2016)
Chief Executive CY Leung: Hong Kong, to be sure, is equally pro-business and pro-growth. Indeed, we are the world's eighth-largest trading economy, and 15th largest exporter of commercial services. We place our faith, and our future, in free trade and innovative enterprise. Good reasons for India and Hong Kong to expand on our strong and longstanding ties - to explore the wealth of new and emerging prospects open to business on both sides. And that's why I'm here, in India, leading a high-profile mission of 40 Hong Kong and Mainland business leaders. That reality - that our mission counts CEOs of major businesses - underscores a critical Hong Kong advantage: our "one country, two systems" arrangement. The "one country" part of this successful formula means that Hong Kong enjoys unique advantages for being part of China. We enjoy the best market access to the Mainland, and many other benefits that come with being a privileged player in China, the world's second-largest economy. As for "two systems", we offer free market access to Hong Kong, the common law system, rule of law, open and democratic government, independent judiciary and English as one of the official and business languages. The "one country" and "two systems" arrangement offers opportunities no other city in China, indeed no other economy in the world, can match. It's a unique role, one that has made Hong Kong a two-way business bridge open to all. We bring the rest of China and the rest of the world together. I like to call Hong Kong the world's "super-connector". There are nearly 8,000 overseas and Mainland companies that maintain offices in Hong Kong. Most take advantage of our peerless ties to the Mainland. No less important, they set up in Hong Kong because capital, information, trade and people flow freely in and out of Hong Kong. They do so because our tax system is simple and our tax rates low. (http://j.mp/1obW7IJ)
HK: natural Belt-Road trade hub (7.12.2015)
Financial Secretary John Tsang As you know, more than 50% of our total exports are destined for the Mainland, our largest trading partner. CEPA (the Mainland and Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement), our free-trade arrangement with the Mainland, certainly helps fuel those exports. Some 1,800 products now enjoy zero tariff preference, thanks to CEPA, and the total export value of the goods under CEPA exceeds HK$73 billion, with tariff savings of more than RMB5 billion. And, rest assured, we shall continue to explore other ways to enhance the competitiveness of Hong Kong products in the ever-expanding Mainland market. The development of the Belt & Road initiative will certainly increase the volume and intensity of international trade and investment flow among the economies along the twin corridors of "the Belt" and "the Road". It will also expand two-way traffic in and out of Mainland China. Hong Kong is the natural financial, business and trade hub of the Belt & Road. And to ensure our place in the fast lane of the Belt & Road, the Government will continue to work with our trade partners in concluding bilateral as well as plurilateral trade and investment agreements. We also have plans to streamline our customs-clearance arrangements, and strengthen co-operation with economies along the Belt & Road on border control issues. (http://j.mp/1lnMW75)
Trade pact to boost HK-ASEAN ties (17.9.2015)
Chief Executive CY Leung It's a great pleasure to be here, on my first official visit to Indonesia. I've certainly picked the right reason, the right time, and the right place to be in Indonesia. Over the next three days, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council's ambitious In Style • Hong Kong promotion will showcase the best of Hong Kong in two high-powered, highly appealing, areas: our smartly styled lifestyle products and our internationally in-demand business services. And what better place to do so than Jakarta, Indonesia's business, cultural, creative and political capital. Indeed, Jakarta is a rising global powerhouse buoyed by a surging economy and an ambitious, increasingly brand-conscious population. That's why we're here with In Style • Hong Kong, a brand and services promotion counting more than 180 Hong Kong companies. Together, we can help satisfy your consumer and your business services' needs, wants and wishes. While this year's In Style • Hong Kong may be new, it arrives as a high-profile expansion of the HKTDC's Lifestyle Expo in Jakarta, which took place here over the previous three years. And when it comes to doing business, Hong Kong and Indonesia have a long and mutually rewarding history. Last year, our total merchandise trade exceeded US$5 billion, up nearly 2% over the previous year. Through the first six months of this year, it's up again - 2.5%, year on year. And our services trade in 2014 was worth some US$1.4 billion, an increase of nearly 7% over 2013 results. Good numbers, to be sure, and with the promise of much more to come as Indonesia's 250 million people continue to urbanise, to demand the best that the world has to offer. The strength of Indonesia pushes well past the limits of its vast archipelago. You are a key member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, our important partner in commerce and trade. Indeed, ASEAN is Hong Kong's second-largest trading partner in goods and our fourth largest in services in the world. Last year, the total value of merchandise trade between Hong Kong and ASEAN exceeded US$106 billion - up 10% over the previous year. I am confident that our mutual trade and investment could only be better, generating new business opportunities while boosting economic growth on both sides. Pact will boost trade The ASEAN-Hong Kong Free Trade Agreement will certainly help. The FTA covers trade in goods and related issues, trade in services, investment, economic and technical co-operation, and dispute settlement. The fourth round of negotiations took place in July, in Singapore. I look forward to the FTA's successful conclusion in the coming year. It will, I know, strengthen economic ties and co-operation between Hong Kong and Indonesia. With our help, it will encourage more Indonesian exports to the Mainland of China. Inevitably, more Hong Kong and Mainland Chinese investment will also find its way into Indonesia. That connection is among Hong Kong's unique business strengths. I'm talking, of course, about our role - Hong Kong's role - as the super-connector between the Mainland of China and the world. Our free-trade experience and global connectivity have supported - indeed, fast-tracked - the Mainland's opening up to the world for more than three decades now. More than the Mainland's largest investor, Hong Kong is the launching pad for Chinese companies and brands eager to take their products, services and capital to global markets - that of course includes Indonesia. Equally important, we are the gateway for global business looking to Mainland markets. For good reason, starting with our tax system, which is low and blessedly uncomplicated. It helps, too, that we maintain a common law system underpinned by an independent judiciary and that intellectual property is rigorously protected. Indeed, Hong Kong has been named the world's freest economy for each of the past 21 years by the Washington-based Heritage Foundation. Three days ago, the Fraser Institute again ranked Hong Kong number one in the world in terms of economic freedom. Level playing field We are a very open and welcoming society. We believe in the free flow of people and information. We subscribe to a level playing field for business, wherever that business comes from. Nearly 7,600 overseas and Mainland Chinese companies are based in Hong Kong. The government does not compete with you. The government does not own businesses in Hong Kong to compete with businesses whether they are local or foreign. ... (http://j.mp/1F4ycT2)
English/Nat The US government moved closer to imposing trade sanctions against Beijing on Saturday. It issued a list of Chinese imports which could incur much higher import taxes unless Beijing clamps down on alleged piracy of American films, software and music. China has already threatened to retaliate in kind against American imports if Washington goes ahead, sparking an all-out trade war between two of the world's biggest trading countries. Washington will decide after February 4th whether to impose the new tariffs, although many expect that negotiations will resolve the problem before then. The US claims that American business loses more than 800 (m) million US Dollars a year to Chinese copyright pirates. Officials say that virtually all videotapes and 94 per cent of software sold in China is counterfeit. US Trade Representative Mickey Kantor's statement said that action must be taken to protect US interests. Speaking during the week, State Department spokesman Michael McCurry outlined the US position. SOUNDBITE: "We are very concerned about instances of piracy and instances in which copyright laws here in the United States are not honoured, harming unnecessarily US industries, and we believe there is a system of rules that exist within the international trading order and as a government that wishes to enter into that trading order, China has responsibilities that it needs to meet with that respect" SUPER CAPTION: Michael McCurry - State Department spokesman For example, tens of (m) millions of fake CDs are smuggled out of southern China each year to shops around the world. Many end up either in Hong Kong or are shipped through it. The main counterfeiting centre used to be Taiwan, but a strict clampdown there over the last two years has forced the pirates to move to mainland China. However, it's estimated that half the cost of setting up in China has come from Taiwan and Hong Kong businesses. Many of the CDs are indistinguishable from the real thing: a copy of this particular product was on the Hong Kong market before the software company released it anywhere in the world. Some allege official involvement on the mainland. SOUNDBITE: "We suspect that at least some of the factories have obtained support from various Chinese government ministries either directly or indirectly." SUPER CAPTION: Ron Eckstrom, Business Software Alliance In Hong Kong the Customs Department frequently raids the shopping arcades and street-sellers for software or CDs. They say one of the best ways to hit back at the counterfeiters is for a new form of coding to be added to CD-making machines, allowing a pirated CD to be traced back to the factory. China is expected to re-licence the country's CD factories which may help solve some of the problem. SOUNDBITE: "So, as one of the requirements for re-licensing that's why they have to install the S-I-D code with their machinery. So, this is a very good move and then we hope in the future we can stop to a certain extent the Music CD piracy, might as well the CD ROM piracy." SUPER CAPTION: Ronny H. K. Tsang, Hong Kong Customs and Excise Dept If China continues this widespread faking of all types of goods, not only will the US impose new taxes on a wide range of Chinese imports, it could also continue to oppose China's entry to the World Trade Organisation.

CE promotes HK in London (22.9.2017)
Chief Executive Carrie Lam continued her London visit yesterday by speaking at the Think Asia, Think Hong Kong symposium. Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, the event showcased Hong Kong's business services advantages for UK companies seeking opportunities in Asia. More than 1,000 people from the political and business sectors attended. Mrs Lam attended the event with Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau and Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury James Lau. Addressing the event, she said Hong Kong is the preferred location for doing business in Asia for enterprises worldwide and welcomes British partners to explore new business opportunities in the region. "The unique advantages that Hong Kong enjoys under 'one country, two systems' and our very strong commercial links with the mainland of China, naturally, make us the preferred location for doing business in Asia. "Being the country's most international city, not only can Hong Kong benefit from the advantage of 'one country' and the convenience of 'two systems', it can also serve as a hub for international trade and investment in the (Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao) Bay Area. "Fully leveraging its unique position as international, financial, transportation and trading centres, a global offshore renminbi business hub and an international assets management centre, Hong Kong will become a platform connecting the bay area with the rest of the world, bring in foreign businesses and investment, and join hands with Mainland companies to go global." Mrs Lam then met First Secretary of State and Minister for the Cabinet Office of the UK Damian Green and Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox at the Prime Minister's Office. Mrs Lam said Hong Kong continues to strengthen its status as an international business and financial centre thanks to the successful implementation of "one country, two systems" and the support of the Mainland. With the rule of law and judicial independence, a clean and efficient Government, a fair business environment and a rich pool of talent, Hong Kong continues to stride forward, she added. Hong Kong and the UK have strong and long-standing ties and are close trading and business partners, she said, welcoming the Strategic Dialogue on Trade Partnership agreed by both sides to further study the strengthening of bilateral trade. She said she looked forward to closer collaboration with the UK in the areas of art and culture, and innovation and technology. Mrs Lam also attended a luncheon hosted by the All Party Parliamentary China Group at the House of Commons to discuss housing, urban planning, smart city initiatives and heritage conservation. She then met awardees under the Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence Scheme who are studying in the UK. Mrs Lam said her administration attaches great importance to young people and will provide more opportunities for them by developing a diversified economy. She encouraged the attendees to return to Hong Kong after graduation to contribute to the community. Mrs Lam and Mr Yau later toured the Victoria & Albert Museum and an exhibition at the London Design Festival. They also called on Chinese Ambassador Liu Xiaoming to thank the Chinese embassy for helping Hong Kong people in the UK. (http://j.mp/2jR2DHP)

HK connects financial markets (22.06.2015)
A premier capital formation centre, Hong Kong is one of the world's largest markets for initial public offerings. Last year, our stock market raised $233 billion through IPOs, second globally, just behind the United States. More than 1,700 companies are listed in Hong Kong, including Mainland and overseas companies. They are here because of Hong Kong's market liquidity and our access to global investors. They are here also because Hong Kong offers the combined advantage of "one country" and "two systems". Today, Mainland companies account for more than 60% of our market capitalisation. One of the highlights of the past year must be the preparation for, and then the launch of, Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect. The go-ahead given by the Central Authorities in Beijing amidst the disturbance of Occupy Central is the ultimate proof of their trust and confidence in Hong Kong in the handling of the unprecedented challenge to law and order. I take this opportunity to thank the Central Authorities. I thank also Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing for working with the Government during the weeks of anxiety before we got the final green light. I remember the many meetings with Chung Kong – CK, and Charles, including one that CK was asked to join in Government House straight from the airport after a long flight from Europe. Groundbreaking connection Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect has indeed taken our super-connector role to new heights. It is groundbreaking too. It has opened the Mainland stock market as never before. It enhances co-operation between the Hong Kong and Shanghai stock markets by expanding their sources of investment; it also boosts their competitiveness. It proves again that both cities can work together for mutual benefits, and the game is not zero-sum. And there is more. Stock Connect is promoting the gradual opening of the Mainland's capital account and the internationalisation of the renminbi as an investment currency for global investors. Stock Connect has been running smoothly. And it's just the beginning. A similar link with Shenzhen will follow. Global expansion Just last month, FTSE announced that it would include Mainland A-shares in its global benchmarks. Such a move will enable global investors to gain wide exposure to the A-share market. It will also benefit our financial intermediaries, those who provide services to global investors entering the A-share market through Hong Kong. Mainland connectivity is only part of our strategy. We set our eyes also on market players from the rest of the world. HKEx now owns the London Metal Exchange, LME, in the UK, the world's largest premier base metals market. HKEx now enjoys a global leadership position in base metals futures and options trading through the LME. In April, with the Government's full support, HKEx's four clearing houses were recognised by the European Securities & Markets Authority as third-country central counterparties to offer clearing services to European financial institutions. This ensures that European banks and other financial institutions will continue to participate in our markets. The recognition is also testimony to the high standards of Hong Kong's financial market intermediaries. Beyond Hong Kong's well-established equity and equity derivatives business, our super-connector role extends to the commodities market. Last December, HKEx launched its first Asia commodities futures contracts, referenced to the global reference price of the LME. Hong Kong is in an excellent position to satisfy Asia's appetite for trading in commodity futures, particularly demand driven by the Mainland. Looking ahead, "One Belt, One Road" and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, AIIB, promise us huge opportunities as a fundraising hub and provider of financial services. I'm thinking of international investment, cross-border trade settlement, Renminbi bond issuance, asset and risk management services, corporate treasury services, and more. Hong Kong has a powerful competitive edge in these areas, and we stand to benefit from the grand initiatives of "One Belt, One Road" and AIIB. We will, as well, continue to develop Islamic finance in Hong Kong, given the many Muslim countries along the Belt-Road way. Just last month, the Government successfully offered a second sukuk, with an issuance size of US$1 billion over a tenor of five years. There would be more to come, I believe, when Hong Kong expands its role in Islamic finance. (http://bit.ly/1JdSKcK)

CE promotes HK to the US (12.6.2013)
Chief Executive CY Leung continued his official visit to New York today, promoting Hong Kong as a trading port at the "Think Asia, Think Hong Kong" symposium held by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council. Mr Leung said the best route for US companies to reach the vibrant Chinese and Asian markets is not a straight line on a map, but through Hong Kong. He said some companies know that a presence in Hong Kong is a ticket to the Chinese and Asian markets, and they know that if their products or services sell well in Hong Kong, they will also sell well throughout China, a market with 1.3 billion potential customers. "In other words, our city is a very effective showcase for American goods and services targeting consumers in Asia - a Madison Avenue of the East!" he said. He also appealed to US businessmen to think of Hong Kong as the "Chief Information Officer" or "Chief Knowledge Officer" for Mainland China. Mr Leung also attended a luncheon hosted by the National Committee on US - China Relations, and met Hong Kong people living in New York. He also spoke at a dinner hosted by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council in New York. He said Hong Kong serves as a super-connector between the world's two largest economies, the US and China, and is working to strengthen cross-boundary connectivity. "Importantly, the HKSAR Government will be more involved in reviewing and formulating the National Five-Year Plans which serve as development blueprints for our country," he said.

Hong Kong Law change to boost consumer protection
Hong Kong Law change to boost consumer protection - The Trade Descriptions (Unfair Trade Practices) (Amendment) Ordinance 2012, which extends coverage from goods to services and specified unfair trade practices, will come into effect on July 19. Commissioner of Customs & Excise Clement Cheung outlined the ordinance at a press conference today. He said the Government is committed to protecting consumer rights and establishing an effective regime where consumers and businesses can trade fairly with confidence. He said the objectives of this ordinance are twofold - to enhance consumer protection, and to create a good business environment and a platform for fair competition so honest and law-abiding businesses can thrive. Under the amended legislation, six types of unscrupulous trade practices will be prohibited - applying false trade descriptions of goods and services; misleading omissions; aggressive commercial practices; bait advertising; baiting and switching; and, wrongly accepting payment. Investigation priorities will be set to deal with cases under the ordinance by taking into account the identified risks, the complaints received and making the best use of enforcement resources. He said a higher priority is generally accorded to a case involving conduct that has significant public interests or concerns, a repeated and intentional conduct engaged by a trader or a trading industry, or conduct that causes significant financial loss to consumers. While the Customs & Excise Department is the principal agency responsible for enforcing the ordinance, concurrent jurisdiction is conferred on the Communications Authority to enforce sections in relation to the commercial practices of licensees under the Telecommunications Ordinance and the Broadcasting Ordinance that are directly connected with the provision of telecommunications or broadcasting services.
