“Think Asia, Think Hong Kong” Conferences to Take Place in U.S. this June
12 April 2013
The Hong Kong Trade Development Council will hold its first “Think Asia, Think Hong Kong” conferences in the U.S. this spring to foster business-building and networking opportunities between American and Hong Kong companies. The first symposium will be held in New York City on 11 June, followed by a Los Angeles conference on 14 June.
As Asia’s hub for international trade and finance with strong trading ties to the U.S. and mainland China, Hong Kong offers a gateway to Chinese and other Asian markets for American toy manufacturers and other industry professionals.
“The topics to be addressed at this event will be an important part of ongoing efforts to nurture relationships between the U.S. and Hong Kong toy industries,” said North American Toy Industry Association President Carter Keithley.
The conferences will bring together corporate leaders, small and medium-sized enterprises, service providers, economists and academics together to discuss developments, trends and new business opportunities. The Honorable CY Leung, chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, will deliver a symposium in New York on Chinese enterprises and Hong Kong services available to U.S. companies; the agenda also includes break-out meetings with Hong Kong and Chinese mainland delegates, as well as thematic business seminars on Chinese outbound investments and exports to Asia, punctuated by a networking luncheon.
Free registration for both conferences is now open; for more information, contact the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (212.838-8688).
