Belt and Road Summit: Hong Kong-Indonesia connection

Hong Kong’s “connector” role to ASEAN through the recent free trade agreement is a very important factor for Belt and Road investment, according to Shinta Widjaja Kamdani of Indonesia’s Sintesa Group. With Sintesa Group’s construction of a new eco-tourism zone and Indonesia’s increasing demand for public-private partnerships, she says at the Belt and Road Summit 2018 that Hong Kong is a bridge to such projects with the Chinese mainland.


Pakistan’s Belt and Road commitment

Pakistan’s infrastructure drive and China’s new energy options through Pakistan characterise the developing China-Pakistan Economic Corridor under the Belt and Road Initiative, according to Pakistan’s Hong Kong & Macau Consul General. Abdul Qadir Memon says a Hong Kong registered company and other Belt and Road participants are bringing prosperity and optimism to Pakistan.
