Belt and Road Experience Sharing Forum
To let our young people better understand the opportunities and challenges brought by the Belt and Road Initiative, the Belt and Road Office co-organised with the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau, the Development Bureau, the Education Bureau and the Home Affairs Bureau, a Belt and Road Experience Sharing Forum (“Forum”) on 7 June 2017 at the Central Government Offices. The Y.Elites Association and Junior Chamber International Hong Kong were supporting organisations. The Forum is also one of the events to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
The Chief Executive, Mr CY Leung, attended and gave welcoming remarks at the Forum. He specifically pointed out that the Belt and Road Initiative would provide new prospects for the Hong Kong community, our younger generation and various sectors.
At the Forum, four young Hong Kong entrepreneurs and professionals who have considerable experience and achievements in working or doing business in Belt and Road countries shared their experience and insights with some 400 young people who are working in different fields or studying in universities. The four guest speakers were: Mr Jason Law from the architectural sector, Ms Glendy Choi from the construction sector, Mr Jason Chiu from the information technology sector and Mr Conrad Chan from the legal services sector. After the four speakers had finished their talks, there was a Q&A session moderated by Mr Clarence Leung, Honourable Chairperson of the Y.Elites Association.
