Twenty-seven companies in Hong Kong have joined the sponsorship project of the special administrative region's Expo participation, contributing more than 38 million HK dollars (US$4.89 million) in total.

Henry Tang Ying-yen, Chief Secretary for the Administration, hosted a 'thank-you' dinner for sponsors on Monday night. "On behalf of the Hong Kong government, I would like to thank you for your support of our participation in the Shanghai World Expo," he said.

He said Hong Kong would take the excellent opportunity to promote the city as a modern, vibrant and interconnected metropolis with quality city life.

HK singer Jacky Cheung was appointed as a Hong Kong ambassador for Expo at the dinner.

Cheung led a group of well-known singers including Eric Suen, Kay Tse, Hins Cheung, Keeva Mak and band Mr to record the Cantonese version of the theme song for Hong Kong's participation in the Expo.

The song was composed by Eric Suen, with the Cantonese lyrics penned by Chan Siu-kei.

A 30-second promotional video featuring the theme song was premiered at the dinner.
