HKTDC “In Style • Hong Kong” Going to Ho Chi Minh City


23 August 2018 - Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the mega promotion “In Style • Hong Kong” is making its debut in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in September. Following its previous successful editions in Jakarta, Bangkok and Malaysia, this year’s campaign aims to highlight Hong Kong’s vibrant lifestyle and unique creativity, and showcase the city’s branded, design-led products and world-class professional services, and how Vietnamese companies could leverage on Hong Kong’s advantages to expand business globally.

Vietnam is Hong Kong’s largest export market among ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries and sixth largest export market globally, with the city’s exports to the country amounting to US$10.2 billion in 2017. Vietnam is Hong Kong’s tenth largest trading partner.

“The connection between Hong Kong and Vietnam has always been strong. The newly signed Hong Kong-ASEAN Free Trade Agreement has further boosted the momentum for bilateral collaboration and connectivity,” Peter Wong, HKTDC Regional Director of Southeast Asia and South Asia, said at today’s press conference. “Despite the uncertainties in the global environment, Vietnam’s economy remains resilient. ‘In Style • Hong Kong’ aims to leverage the momentum and the various growth opportunities to strengthen the economic and trade ties between Hong Kong and Vietnam. We look forward to bringing the best of Hong Kong’s services and products to Vietnam in September.”

“In Style • Hong Kong” in Ho Chi Minh City will include a full-day symposium on business services, a two-day trade expo and a high-level gala dinner, as well as a wide array of shopping and dining promotions in the city.

Symposium on Hong Kong’s World-class Professional Services

The main symposium will be held on 20 September at GEM Center, highlighting Hong Kong’s advantages in various services sectors, particularly cross-border logistics and creative branding and design.

Vincent HS Lo, Chairman of HKTDC; Paul Chan, Financial Secretary of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR); and a high-level local official will officiate at the opening ceremony.

The main symposium themed “Hong Kong- Vietnam: Partnering for Prosperity”, will be chaired by HKTDC Director of Research Nicholas Kwan, who will be joined by other business leaders from Hong Kong, including Jonathan Choi, Chairman of Sunwah Group; John Cheh, Vice Chairman and CEO of Esquel Group, as well as Wallace Lam, Managing Director, Co-head of Global Banking, HSBC Hong Kong. The speakers will share practical insights on the opportunities brought by the Hong Kong-ASEAN Free Trade Agreement and discuss how both countries could collaborate to stay competitive and expand their global businesses together.

Navigating the Future of Retail

As e-commerce in Asia has experienced explosive growth over the years, the retail industry is facing vast opportunities and challenges at the same time, notably in delivery channels and cashless trading. A thematic session on “Navigating the Future of Retail” will highlight the growing trend of e-tailing, cross-border transactions, online payments, as well as their impacts on the supply-chain management and logistics.

Tran, Director, QRC Hub will share their experience and insights on how Vietnamese e-tailers can leverage Hong Kong’s edge in logistics services to expand their online businesses in other markets.

From Ideas to Business

The steady growth of Asian economies offers Vietnamese companies new business opportunities. A session entitled “From Ideas to Business” will explore the latest trends in creative and innovative branding, interior design and licensing solutions. Distinguished speakers will share their experience on how various solutions helped upgrade their businesses in Asia.
