Hong Kong/Hokkaido, 16th January: Earlier this week, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Hokkaido Government in northern Japan agreeing to strengthen bilateral economic cooperation and to work together to help Hong Kong and Hokkaido-based enterprises to promote their products globally.
Under the terms of the MoU, the HKTDC and the Hokkaido government will exchange information to foster bilateral economic relations. They will also support economic exchange programmes and identify projects and investment opportunities for enterprises from both Hong Kong and Hokkaido.
HKTDC Executive Director Margaret Fong, said, “Through signing the MoU, we seek to strengthen the ties between Hong Kong and Hokkaido, and connect Hokkaido companies with counterparts from Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and Southeast Asia. Hokkaido could also ride on other lifestyle-related trade fairs organised by the HKTDC… to promote Hokkaido as the ideal shooting location for the entertainment industry, which will help boost inbound tourism at the same time.”
