Major Initiatives

The Government supported the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC)'s introduction of Transformation Sandbox (T-box) to facilitate SMEs in capitalising on new business opportunities, including making the most of the Belt and Road Initiative by expanding their businesses in the Mainland of China's overseas Economic and Trade Co-operation Zones (ETCZs).

In addition, the Government organises various activities from time to time, such as the Belt and Road Summit, sharing sessions and webinars, to facilitate establishment of direct contact between enterprises and professionals in the Mainland, overseas and Hong Kong. For details, please visit the website of Belt and Road Office and the Belt and Road Portal of the HKTDC.

Hong Kong has been actively seeking to expand its Free Trade Agreement (FTA) network in order to secure favourable conditions for Hong Kong's goods and services to enter the Mainland and international markets.
