Our Chairman Mr. Joseph Chan participated in the online seminar, the Significance of RCEP and Hong Kong’s Opportunities Webinar, organized by the Maritime Silk Road Society (MSRS), was held on 30 March.

In his welcome speech, Mr. Joseph Chan, Honorary Advisor of MSRS, thanked Dr. Wang Chun Xin, Head of Hong Kong Economic and Policy Research Division, Bank of China (Hong Kong), for analyzing the significance of RCEP to the global economy and the opportunities brought to Hong Kong. He described the achievement of RCEP as the establishment of a unified market by reducing tariffs and non-tariff barriers of member countries, and would become the world's largest and most potential regional free trade agreement. He believed that Hong Kong, with China as the hinterland, would definitely benefit from RCEP.
