CE starts Chongqing visit

Chief Executive John Lee today visited the Chongqing International Finance Square (IFS) to learn more about Hong Kong enterprises’ development in Chongqing, as he arrived in the city for a three-day trip with his delegation.


Opened in 2017, the Chongqing IFS is a development project with investment from Hong Kong enterprises and is the largest integrated development project in the financial centre of the Liangjiang New Area.


Noting that Hong Kong is Chongqing’s largest source of external investment with diversified business portfolios of more than 3,400 Hong Kong investment projects, Mr Lee said he was pleased to learn that Hong Kong enterprises are actively unleashing their creativity to support Chongqing’s development as an international consumption centre.


In the evening, Mr Lee met and exchanged views with Hong Kong people and representatives of Hong Kong enterprises in Chongqing.


The Chief Executive thanked Hong Kong enterprises for their active participation in Chongqing’s development, which has paved the way for co-operation between the two places.


With the establishment of a Hong Kong-Chongqing co-operation mechanism, Mr Lee expressed hope that Hong Kong enterprises and youths could fully leverage the new opportunities brought by the co-operation between the two cities to promote economic, trade and cultural exchanges, tell the good stories of Hong Kong, and open a new chapter for business and talent exchanges between the two places.
