Dr Peter K N Lam, Chairman of the HKTDC

Dr Lam said: “I am honoured to be reappointed as Chairman of the HKTDC. In the past four years, the global economy has faced unprecedented challenges. While preparing for the resumption of business in Hong Kong, the HKTDC has also been working hard to help companies, especially SMEs, continue connecting with partners around the world through our online-offline hybrid platforms. With the recent re-opening of Hong Kong, we immediately rolled out several major international conferences and exhibitions and outreach activities, including a delegation to the Middle East led by HKSAR Chief Executive Mr John Lee in February this year. We are pleased to see from the international business community not only their continued enthusiasm for Hong Kong, but also their interest in opportunities such as the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and Asia in general.”

Dr Lam further added, “The HKTDC team and I will continue to leverage Hong Kong’s position as the international gateway of Mainland China to support national policies such as the Belt and Road Initiative and the Greater Bay Area. Through our 50 offices around the world, we will strengthen our overseas promotion activities to promote the Hong Kong city brand, and we will also continue to attract businesses and talent to Hong Kong through our anchor fairs and conferences and digital information platforms. I am optimistic about the future, and will lead the HKTDC team to continue creating opportunities for the business community in Hong Kong and around the world.”
