Hong Kong's post-SARS dynamism has been showcased in St. Petersburg, Moscow and Prague in East Europe through a series of promotional events, a Hong Kong government press release said Friday.
The events included a seminar, a photographic exhibition and cultural performances, led by Director-General of the HK Economic and Trade Office, London, Andrew Leung.
Addressing about 110 prominent businessmen at a seminar organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council in Prague Thursday, Leung called on them to capitalize on the substantial business opportunities presented by CEPA.
He said consensus on building the HK-Macau-Zhuhai Bridge will consolidate the competitive advantage of the Pearl River Delta region, which will be developed into one of the world's most vibrant economic hubs within the next decade.
Leung said Hong Kong will continue to be the key to unlocking the full potential of the vast Chinese mainland market for Eastern European businesses.
Supported by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government, the Hong Kong City Contemporary Dance Company gave week-long performances in the three cities from Oct. 4. Their debut performance there, said Leung, laid a milestone in establishing cultural ties between Hong Kong and East Europe.
