The British Chamber Further Develops its Belt and Road Connectivity Internationally

The British Chamber of Commerce will further develop its regional connectivity and provide members additional opportunities to understand and benefit from China’s Belt and Road Initiative by joining the Hong Kong Trade Development Council’s (HKTDC) new “Belt and Road Global Forum".

The objective of the Forum is to establish a platform gathering Hong Kong, Chinese mainland, and international businesses and organisations to share information, interact, and explore business collaboration under the Belt and Road Initiative through Hong Kong.

Members of the Forum include Hong Kong, Chinese mainland and international companies; which include project owners, investors, service providers, Chambers of commerce, professional bodies and research institutes.

Membership of this Forum will build upon the business opportunities already provided to Chamber members through its MOU with HKTDC as a Belt and Road Strategic Partner. Crucially this new Forum will provide a broader global network, including mainland Chinese entities, for members to connect with and share information with.

A dedicated interactive online platform will be created by HKTDC for members to acquire Belt and Road intelligence, interact and share information on their respective regions. Representatives of the membership will also be invited to meet annually to discuss ways to capitalise on the opportunities arising from the Initiative. These meetings will coincide with the annual Belt and Road Summit held in Hong Kong.

If Chamber members wish to engage further around the topic of Belt and Road and international infrastructure, they can look to join the Chamber’s International Infrastructure Forum. If you would be interested please email hugo@britcham.com for further details.
