A Series of Economic and Trade Exchange Activities Carried Out between Chongqing and Hong Kong

On Sept. 26th, Leung Chun-ying, Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, led Hong Kong delegation to visit Chongqing, and then took part in a series of economic and trade exchange activities, attended Chongqing-Hong Kong cooperation projects signing and Chongqing-Hong Kong Industrial Park opening ceremony”, and attended “Chongqing-Hong Kong Economic and Trade Exchange Meeting” and “Chongqing-Hong Kong Economic and Trade Forum” to further promote the cooperation between Chongqing and Hong Kong.
The government leaders Huang Qifan and Chen Heping, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region So Kam-leung, Executive Director of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council Fred Lam, etc. attended the Leung Chun-ying said, “This time I lead delegation to visit Chongqing mainly for two purposes: one is to be a “matchmaker” to introduce Hong Kong’s commercial and industrial circles to Chongqing’s, so as to mutually understand, and establish relations for further cooperation; the other is to introduce Chongqing’s commercial and industrial circles to Hong Kong, and introduce the services Hong Kong can provide in further economic development of Chongqing and even of the whole mainland.   Hong Kong is an international metropolis, and a good platform for mainland’s opening up. If mainland’s products including Chongqing’s can take root in highly international and highly competitive Hong Kong market, the products can enter the international market. Now, it is a trend for mainland enterprises to enter the international market. Chongqing can take Hong Kong as the platform for “Going Out”, and entering international market. Meanwhile, Hong Kong’s financial market can also be used for financing. The Special Administrative Region’s government will provide necessary services to help mainland enterprises to expand business.”
Leung Chun-ying said, “Hong Kong SAR Government always attaches great importance to the cooperation with Chongqing, and makes great effort to promote economic and trade cooperation as well as exchange in other aspects between Chongqing and Hong Kong. With the strong support from Chongqing government, Hong Kong delegation to Chongqing was established last year. So far, it has operated well. The delegation provides consultation and services for Hong Kong businessmen in Chongqing to help them develop well here. Meanwhile, helps Hong Kong businessmen grasp the potential of strong domestic demand in Chongqing, and helps Hong Kong brands enter Chongqing’s market. In the future, SAR Government will continue to focus on promoting the cooperation with Chongqing. On the one hand, help Hong Kong businessmen seize opportunities in Chongqing, actively enter Chongqing’s market, and cooperate in the fields of professional service, logistics, manufacturing industry, capital construction, real estate, etc.; on the other hand, focus on helping Chongqing enterprises doing business in Hong Kong, and promote the economic and trade cooperation between Chongqing and Hong Kong to make new achievements.”
Huang Qifan said, “Hong Kong is a highly free and open competitive economy, and a famous center for international finance, trade and shipping.  In recent years, under the CEPA framework, Chongqing and Hong Kong continued to deepen pragmatic cooperation, expanded mutual benefit, and formed an economic and trade cooperation pattern with multi-dimension and multi-level. Hong Kong investment always accounts for more than 60% of foreign investment in Chongqing, which has played a supporting role in opening up in Chongqing. Recently, the world economy is in great integration and adjustment. Strengthening cooperation and mutual benefit is the trend of the times. The economies in Chongqing and Hong Kong are highly complementary and have great potential for cooperation. The highly developed service industries: finance, trade, logistics, consultation, etc. in Hong Kong can provide support in the aspects of funds, technology, qualified personnel, etc. for the development and “Going Out” of Chongqing enterprises; the vast hinterland, huge domestic need market and vigorous development trend in Chongqing will also bring opportunities for operation extension of Hong Kong enterprises.  In the future, the two parties can cooperate focusing on the fields of finance, business service, Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe logistics, real estate, manufacturing industry, modern service, etc. Chongqing government will keep various policies stable and continuous as always, promote mutual benefit between Chongqing and Hong Kong with better and attentive service, and make Chongqing-Hong Kong cooperation reach a new level.” 
In the exchange activities, the four chambers of commerce: Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce, Chinese General Chamber of Commerce, Chinese Manufacturers' Association of Hong Kong, Federation of Hong Kong Industries and Hong Kong entrepreneurs branch in Chongqing suggested and advised on the issues of strengthening Chongqing-Hong Kong commerce & trade and retail cooperation, building Hong Kong products exhibition center in Chongqing, transferring part of Hong Kong industries to Chongqing, maintaining the continuity of policies, etc.
