New Council to Promote Cooperation with Taiwan
Initiative Will Enhance Hong Kong-Taiwan Ties: HKTDC

31 March 2010 – The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) welcomes today’s establishment of the Hong Kong-Taiwan Economic & Cultural Co-operation & Promotion Council. The newly formed Council, set up by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government (HKSARG), will collaborate with its Taiwan counterpart, the Taiwan-Hong Kong Economic & Cultural Co-operation Council. The HKTDC believes that this initiative will enhance cooperation between Hong Kong and Taiwan in a range of key sectors.

The HKTDC also welcomes the HKSARG’s appointment of David Lie, Executive Chairman of Newpower International (Holdings) Co Ltd, as Chairperson of the Hong Kong-Taiwan Business Co-operation Committee (BCC). The BCC will collaborate at the corporate level with Taiwan’s Economic Co-operation Committee, to be established under the Taiwan-Hong Kong Economic & Cultural Co-operation Council.

The BCC will have four major functions: to enhance friendship and understanding between the two business communities; to strengthen cooperation in trade, investment and tourism; to discuss issues affecting trade and business activities in Hong Kong and Taiwan; and to raise issues of mutual interest with the relevant authorities in both places.

The HKTDC will act as the secretariat for the BCC. Committee members come from various sectors, including finance, investment, manufacturing, trading, supply chain, legal and tourism. All members are appointed for a two-year term, which can be extended.

See appendix for the membership list of the Hong Kong-Taiwan Business Co-operation Committee.
