The largest Hong Kong promotion to take place in the United States will be held this summer to showcase Hong Kong’s advantages for American companies looking to tap new business opportunities in Asia, particularly on the Chinese mainland.
“Think Asia, Think Hong Kong” will feature symposiums in New York and Los Angeles, June 11 and 14, respectively. Speakers will include CY Leung, chief executive of the Hong Kong SAR Government, and more than 60 prominent senior executives from global companies. The event is organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), with support from 14 Hong Kong partners and close to 100 US organizations.
U.S. exports to Hong Kong from 2010 to 2012 grew by 41%, to more than $37 billion. Over the past decade (2003-2012), U.S. exports to Hong Kong have surged 177%.<
