CE meets Premier and Minister for the Arts of Queensland, Australia (with photo)

     The Chief Executive, Mr C Y Leung, met the visiting Premier and Minister for the Arts of Queensland, Australia, Ms Annastacia Palaszczuk, at the Chief Executive's Office this afternoon (April 6) to exchange views on issues of mutual concern.

     Mr Leung said that Hong Kong and Australia enjoy close economic and trade ties. As an international financial and trade centre, Hong Kong can act as a "super-connector" for Australian enterprises to connect with the market in the Mainland of China to open up more business opportunities. He pointed out that Hong Kong has been playing an active role in facilitating the implementation of the country's Belt and Road Initiative and that the two places could enhance economic and trade co-operation to tap the vast development opportunities brought about by the Initiative.

     Mr Leung also said that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government is committed to promoting developments in arts, culture, innovation and technology, and expressed the hope that the two places would continue to strengthen co-operation and exchanges in these areas.
