HKTDC welcomes the HK Government's economic relief measures

20/08/2019

PETER KN LAM, chairman of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) has welcomed the economic relief measures announced by Hong Kong Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-Po.

"Our future economic development will become more challenging as global economic growth continues to be under pressure, the Sino-US trade war intensifies and incidents in Hong Kong impact our economy," said Dr Lam.

"The economic relief measures from the HKSAR Government announced today will benefit the business community and the people of Hong Kong.

"We particularly welcome the enhancement of the Export Marketing Fund, BUD Fund and the SME Financing Guarantee Scheme because it can help our SMEs in their business operations and their efforts to capture new market opportunities, especially those from the Belt and Road and from the Mainland, including the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area," he said.
