HKTDC’s new director unveils new strategies

News this week: Newly appointed executive director of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), Margret Fong, has highlighted the council’s commitment to creating business opportunities for local companies while also focusing on attracting mainland Chinese and international enterprises to expand their business through Hong Kong.

Fong outlined three strategic directions the HKTDC will take to assist local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to seize global opportunities including: the “Hub Concept”, Hong Kong as Asia’s Business Centre, and Hong Kong’s IT edge.

The “Hub Concept” will see the HKTDC promote trade in products and services, while supporting Hong Kong companies looking to access new markets. Secondly, the council is to establish and promote the city as Asia’s business capital. Finally, the HKTDC will utilise developments in IT to improve and add value to its services for SMEs through its trade fairs, exhibitions and online channels.
