Over the past six years, the Belt and Road Initiative has transformed from ideas to actions, and from vision to reality… Hong Kong comprehensively leverages on its strengths as a one-stop centre, providing professional services such as trading, investment and legal services to all kinds of enterprises. Hong Kong is also supported by international talent, and its deepened cooperation with Mainland China.

Chairman of All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce

I think Hong Kong has a very important position in the Belt and Road and is a key player in the initiative. The open economy and open society in Hong Kong make it easy to connect and do business.

HE Abdulla Al Saleh

Ministry of Economy,

Hong Kong has the experience, and has proven time and again that it is a resilient economy and community. The fact that there are so many countries represented here today, including from Europe and beyond, is a vote of confidence in Hong Kong.

HE Mr Thaung Tun
Union Minister for Investment and Foreign Economic Relations;
Chairman of Myanmar Investment Commission (MIC), the Republic of the Union of Myanmar

I’ve been able to expand my business using the Hong Kong capital market, and the special geography of Hong Kong has been especially helpful. Today we’re talking about the Belt and Road Initiative, in which Hong Kong plays a significant role. If you want to invest in Belt and Road countries, you should come and invest here.

Dr Mochtar Riady

The Belt and Road has made China a much more prosperous, dynamic economy. It has provided countless opportunities for Hong Kong and international companies... Hong Kong continues to play a unique role in Mainland China’s continuing development and the advancement of the Belt and Road Initiative.

Key Participants

I appreciated every single arrangement at the Belt and Road Summit, from the line-up of speakers to the programme, business-matching meetings and breakout sessions. Hong Kong will continue in its role as a super-connector and trade fair hub.

Mr Laszlo Bakonyi
President, Hungary-Hong Kong Business Association


The Belt and Road Summit is founded on a very strong and powerful initiative. What brings us to be a part of the Summit are the countless opportunities that you find here and the chance to meet a lot of potential partners to take the Initiative forward and find good opportunities for cooperation. We find this very useful … We've been at the Summit since the first year and hopefully will be here in the years to come.

The Summit is a great platform for us to embellish relationships with potential investors (...) some companies are really interested to invest in Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan plays a strategic role within the Belt and Road Initiative
