Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying (middle) believes that Hong Kong will be the best placed Chinese city to contribute to the “Belt and Road” initiative if the SAR can lift its social capital.
Mr. CK Chow, chairman of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing, said: “Hong Kong is the most efficient financial center in the region.
“One role that Hong Kong has always played is really as a global supply chain manager orchestrating a lot of flows,” said Victor Fung Kwok-king, chairman of the Fung Group.
Hong Kong’s pool of knowledge puts it in an ideal position to provide super connectivity within and among countries participating in the Belt and Road strategy, said Lincoln Leong Kwok-kuen, CEO of the MTR Corporation, which manages the city’s transport infrastructure.
“We should become the hub for the Belt and Road. The first thing to start is how to provide the information,” said Vincent Lo Hong-sui, chairman of the HKTDC, which is planning to launch an information website for the initiative.
"Hong Kong's role as a 'super connector' can help bring China and the world closer together," said YK Pang, chairman of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce
