Trade and Industry Department holds roving exhibition to celebrate 20th anniversary of CEPA signing
     To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Mainland and Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA), the Trade and Industry Department is staging a roving exhibition from today (September 12) until March 2024 at different locations. Members of the public are invited to visit.
     A spokesman for the Trade and Industry Department said, "As the most liberal free trade agreement of the Mainland, CEPA fully demonstrates the country's continuous and staunch support for Hong Kong. Through CEPA, Hong Kong has been a testing ground for the opening up of the country. CEPA has not only embodied the successful implementation of the "one country, two systems" principle in Hong Kong, but has also reinforced Hong Kong's unique status and advantages of enjoying strong support from the country and being closely connected to the world."
     Under the theme "Mutual Benefit Continuous Development", the exhibition showcases to different quarters of the community how CEPA has created unprecedented business opportunities for various industries and sectors, promoted economic and trade integration of the Mainland and Hong Kong, and played an active role in the country's reform and opening up. Through this exhibition, the public can look back on the development and achievements of CEPA over the past two decades, and look forward to more promising opportunities to be brought to Hong Kong by CEPA. The major statistical information of the 20 years' achievements of CEPA is in the Annex.
     The spokesman expressed gratitude to all quarters of the community for supporting CEPA over the years. Looking ahead, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will continue to actively seek to further enrich CEPA's content and assist the trade in fully utilising its preferential measures, striving to foster prosperous and complementary development of the economy of the two places, and enable Hong Kong to integrate more comprehensively into the national development.
