Under the theme 'Creating and Realising Opportunities', the summit will analyse in depth how Hong Kong can give full play to its strengths in the Belt and Road Initiative and help participants from different countries and professional sectors to explore opportunities.
This year's event is being extended to two days, covering a broader range of issues and sectors. More exchanges and business-matching meetings will be organised in 2019, providing more opportunities for government officials, entrepreneurs and professionals from around the world to discuss collaboration opportunities under the Belt and Road.
About 80 government officials, business leaders and representatives from international organisations from Hong Kong, Mainland China and countries along the Belt and Road have been invited as guest speakers at the summit.
The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has been accorded the status of a key strategic plan in the blueprint for China's longer-term development.
