The best is yet to come
Last year, Japan was our fourth-largest trading partner globally and there were more than 1,300 Japanese companies operating in Hong Kong, with nearly half of them using Hong Kong as their regional headquarters or regional office. We remain the number one destination for Japanese food exports. With a strong economy and plentiful opportunities arising from Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area, I am sure these positive trends will continue, propelled not least by the return to Tokyo in November of our mega “Think Global, Think Hong Kong” campaign.
I am confident that the best is yet to come for Hong Kong and for our relationship with Japan.
