HKTDC organises Lifestyle Expo in Istanbul

News this week: Last week, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) held the second edition of Lifestyle Expo in Istanbul. The expo took place at the Lutfi Kirdar Convention and Exhibition Center from 12th to 14th September and is organised by the HKTDC and the Department of Commerce of Guangdong Province (GD-DOC).

More than 180 companies from Hong Kong and Guangdong showcased products including electronics, fashion, watches and clocks, household products and gifts and premiums. According to the HKTDC, the total value of bilateral trade between Hong Kong and Turkey exceeded US$1.2 billion last year - a year-on-year increase of 7%.

Andrew Leung, council member of the HKTDC, commented at the opening ceremony, “Trade between our two countries, Turkey and China, dates back centuries. This Expo is an opportunity to build new B2B bridges along the new Silk Road.”
