Invitation to the World Free Trade Zone (Hengqin) Summit 2019

 

We are honored to invite you to attend the 3rd World Free Trade Zone (Hengqin) Summit on October 29th, 2019, in Zhuhai China, organized by the China Regional Office of World FZO.

Early in August 2019, China President Xi announced the founding of six new pilot free trade zones in China, which have been extending the opening-up to the outside world and encouraging companies to conduct international business.  Now it is the best time to learn about the new trend & development in China.  This is an excellent opportunity to join the upcoming summit in Zhuhai to learn, share, and network with different free zones.

With the theme of “Openness, Innovation, Connection,” the summit will gather 200+ experts, representatives from worldwide free zones, international organizations, and global enterprises.  The participants will share the latest policies, trends of free zones, and the development of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA).  If you are looking for a good partner in the far east, it is an event you cannot miss.

See you in Zhuhai!


Yours Sincerely,

China Regional Office of World FZO

About Zhuhai


Zhuhai is in the southwest of the Pearl River estuary in Guangdong Province, with Hong Kong in the east and Macao in the south. It is a key point of the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road. As one of China’s first special economic zones, the city has always prioritized ecological development, boasting one of the best environments in China.

Local lands have been reasonably developed, low-end industry is kept in check, and the population count is nicely balanced with its overall quality of living. The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, the world’s longest cross-sea span and the first of its kind in China, makes Zhuhai the only mainland city to directly connect Hong Kong and Macao by roadway.

Ever since the Hengqin FTZ (Free Trade Zone) came into operation in 2015, the city has played an increasingly important role in China’s Belt & Road Initiative. It has cooperated with Macao to build a world-class tourism and leisure center and China-Portugal economic and trade cooperation platform. Economic and trade relations with Latin American countries have also been continuously strengthened through diversification and the furthering of secure access to the outside world.
