HKETO hosts spring reception in Wuhan

Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Wuhan (WHETO), the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and the Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce in China-Wuhan jointly held the Spring Reception for Hong Kong Residents in Hubei Province 2018 today (March 9) in Wuhan to celebrate the Chinese New Year with around 200 Hong Kong people who live and work in Hubei.

     In his welcome remarks, the Director of the WHETO, Mr Vincent Fung, said that since the establishment of the WHETO in April 2014, it has been playing an active role on various fronts including strengthening the connections with the provincial governments in the central region of the Mainland; fostering closer ties in areas such as trade, economic affairs and cultural and youth exchanges; and offering better support to the Hong Kong residents and enterprises in the region. As 2018 is the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up of China and Hong Kong will also be connected to the national high-speed rail network this year, the WHETO will keep pace with the new situation and further enhance its functions and offer better services. Apart from setting up two Liaison Units in Hunan and Henan, the WHETO also set up the Immigration Division recently in November 2017 to offer Hong Kong Special Administrative Region passport replacement services and provide practical assistance for Hong Kong residents in distress in the region.

The WHETO will step up the promotion of Hong Kong and facilitate exchanges on various fronts between two places.

     During the reception, Mr Fung spoke with representatives of the provincial government of Hubei. He also talked with Hong Kong people who live, study and operate businesses in the province to know more about their experiences there.

     The Hunan Liaison Unit of the WHETO, the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office (HKMAO) in Hunan and the Changsha Municipal Government will jointly hold the Spring Reception for Hong Kong Residents in Hunan Province 2018 in Changsha on March 15. The Hunan Liaison Unit and the HKMAO in Hunan will jointly hold the 2018 Forum between the Hunan Provincial Government and Representatives of Hong Kong Enterprises in the same afternoon.

The Henan Liaison Unit of the WHETO will also host the New Year Gathering of Hong Kong Residents in Henan 2018 in Zhengzhou on March 20.
