CE meets Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Food of Slovenia
Hong Kong (HKSAR) - The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, met the visiting Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Food of the Republic of Slovenia Mr Dejan Å½idan at the Chief Executive's Office this afternoon (November 8).
Welcoming Mr Å½idan on his visit for the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Fair, Mrs Lam noted that Hong Kong and Slovenia have already established co-operation in wine-related businesses. She said that the Memorandum of Understanding on Co-operation in Wine-related Businesses signed between the two places in April this year would lay a solid foundation for further collaboration in wine trade and promotion in the future. Mrs Lam added that Hong Kong's status as Asia's wine hub would provide an excellent platform for the Slovenian wine industry to gain access to tens of millions of visitors to Hong Kong as well as to enter the vast Mainland market.
Mrs Lam pointed out that the Belt and Road Initiative advocated by China will strengthen ties between Asia and Central and Eastern Europe.
Hong Kong’s status as an international hub for finance, commerce, services and logistics, coupled with its unique advantages under "One Country, Two Systems", makes it an ideal gateway for Slovenian companies to expand their business to the Mainland and the rest of Asia. She expressed the hope that Hong Kong and Slovenia could deepen co-operation on all fronts and further promote bilateral ties.
