As part of an all-out drive to promote Hong Kong to businesses around the world, the Special Administrative Region’s Director-General of Investment Promotion, Stephen Phillips, is due to meet with tech and finance business leaders in Lisbon this week.

Phillips will speak at the Hong Kong Seminar in Europe 2022 in Lisbon on 9 June and meet with business leaders in the financial services and information technology sectors.

“The agenda is to promote Hong Kong’s business advantages and opportunities, highlighting the city’s strategic role in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA). It is part of our investment promotion efforts to promote Hong Kong’s business attractions,” Invest Hong Kong stated.

Phillips started his promotional tour last month with visits to Doha, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Kuwait, followed by Amsterdam and Madrid.

Phillips will meet with business leaders from various sectors including innovation and technology, financial services, fintech, business and professional services, tourism and hospitality, and transport, infrastructure and advanced manufacturing, CLBrief reported.

Phillips said: “Hong Kong is an ideal location for overseas and mainland Chinese companies, as well as entrepreneurs from around the world, as a base to set up or expand their business in Hong Kong, the GBA, China, and Asia more widely. The facts speak for themselves: in two surveys conducted last year, we saw a record number of businesses from overseas and mainland China come to Hong Kong, as well as the largest number of start-ups in Hong Kong.”
