(ECNS) -- China International Fair for Trade and Investment 2019 and the Belt and Road Investment Congress is currently underway in Xiamen, Fujian Province.
Vincent Tang, Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion at InvestHK, addressed a symposium at the event. Tang said Hong Kong's diverse service sectors can help mainland industries better connect with the world.
"Companies are willing to reach out to the overseas market and need good platforms. Hong Kong is willing to serve as the platform, because we have unique systems in terms of tax policies, talent and law," he said.
Tang compared the current situation in Hong Kong to a typhoon.
"A typhoon will leave sooner or later. What we can do is to deal with it by doing our job better. We'll try our best to promote Hong Kong, allowing companies to learn more about the city. In this way we can restore the luster of the 'Oriental Pearl' after the 'typhoon' has left," he said.
