HONG KONG, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) looks to tap into new business opportunities with Indonesia amid the challenges from the COVID-19 epidemic.
Speaking on Tuesday at an online forum to promote trade, investment, professional services and innovation and technology between China's Hong Kong and Indonesia, HKSAR Chief Executive Carrie Lam said that digital economy and innovation and technology will bring fresh opportunities for business cooperation between the two sides.
Lam said digital innovation has helped Hong Kong contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and minimize community disruption, which is open for sharing with overseas partners, including those from Indonesia.
Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development of the HKSAR government Edward Yau said Hong Kong is an attractive location for Indonesian companies to expand to the mainland and elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific region.
Indonesian investors can establish businesses in Hong Kong to take full advantage of its close ties with the mainland and find new business opportunities especially in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Yau said.
The forum was held by the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau of the HKSAR government and the Consulate General of Indonesia in Hong Kong.
