Hong Kong Development Council

09.27.16 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location:
Greater Cleveland Partnership, 1240 Huron Road East, Cleveland, OH 44115

Join the Greater Cleveland Partnership and Global Cleveland for an insightful and informative program that will explore how new and established companies can build business connections and opportunities in Asia, including one of the biggest consumer markets, China.

Hong Kong's strong fundamentals, ideal location and dynamic people offer an extremely business-friendly environment. In addition, a wide range of business support services are available thanks to Hong Kong's many roles as:

  • An international financial center
  • A platform for overseas direct investment (ODI) and Chinese outbound investment
  • A regional trading hub
  • A logistics and maritime services hub
  • A professional services hub
  • A lifestyle trendsetter

Many U.S. companies also use Hong Kong as the launching pad for their established brands in new Asia markets.

About the program

Ralph Chow, regional director, Americas of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), will lead a panel of experts discussing how business can expand and take advantage of all Hong Kong has to offer.

The HKTDC is the trade promotion arm of the Hong Kong government and has been established in global markets for 50 years providing business matching services, trade fairs, business missions and conferences to help overseas companies find partners for both goods and services.

He will be joined by Amy Freedman, International Trade Specialist, U.S. Commercial Service, and Ping Li, partner, Thompson Hine Corporate Transactions & Securities. The speakers will share their experiences working with U.S. companies doing business in Asia.
