Hong Kong-Guangdong Cooperation in Environmental Protection Presented Business Opportunities

May 21 2010

The theme and other highlights of the upcoming fair were introduced at a business luncheon hosted by Expo organisers the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd on 19 April 2010.

Hong Kong-Guangdong cooperation in environmental protection presented business opportunities
The luncheon’s keynote speaker, Secretary for the Environment Edward Yau, introduced the latest developments in Hong Kong-Guangdong cooperation in the area of environmental protection, and the opportunities they presented to the business sector. In April, Chief Executive Donald Tsang and Guangdong Governor Huang Huahua signed the Framework Agreement on Hong Kong/Guangdong Co-operation. That agreement includes a number of important measures meant to implement a regional ecology and environmental protection regime, to create a high-quality living area in the Greater Pearl River Delta region.

“The business sector has a key role to play in the region’s pursuit of a green agenda as a solution provider. Eco Expo Asia provides an ideal platform for business-to-business and business-to-government dialogue on how their partnerships could be strengthened to tackle the challenges posed by climate change and, at the same time, harness the opportunities,” said Mr Yau.

C40 Workshop on “Low-Carbon Cities for High-Quality Living” would be held concurrently
HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau told the luncheon guests that a C40 Workshop – “Low-Carbon Cities for High-Quality Living” – would be held concurrently with the fifth edition of Eco Expo Asia. The C40 Climate Leadership Group encompasses some of the world’s leading cities committed to tackling climate change.

The two events, said Mr Chau, would bring together government officials and environmental experts from Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and around the world to share their insights on low carbon living. Those insights bring with them enormous business opportunities – particularly on the Chinese mainland. “But more than business,” he added, “they offer solutions to the complex environmental issues that confront us all.”
