Hong Kong Trade Development Council welcomes new Budget

HONG KONG, Feb 26, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - Chairman of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) Dr Peter Lam welcomes the new 2020-21 Budget, including the additional HK$150 million funding to the HKTDC to help Hong Kong businesses find new opportunities and to help the city rebuild international business confidence in Hong Kong as Asia's commercial hub.

Dr Peter Lam said, "We are greatly encouraged by the support from the government. Hong Kong's SMEs [small and medium-sized enterprises] are tackling immediate financial challenges; I hope the measures in the Budget, together with the recently announced corona virus relief package for the convention and exhibition industry, will help them win new business and open up new markets".

Dr Lam added, "When the cornavirus subsides, we will redouble our efforts to leverage HKTDC's global network to reach out to the international community. I sincerely hope that, through enhanced promotional events, increased participation in trade fairs worldwide and proactive outreach through overseas business missions, we will help Hong Kong companies shore up their strengths and forge a bright future."
