“The continued steady growth of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations market, in particular the Greater Mekong Sub-region, including Thailand, presents plenty of business opportunities for Hong Kong.”
She later visited the largest private hospital in Southeast Asia, with 538 beds and 30 specialty centres.
Mrs Lam then met with local business leaders to promote investment opportunities for Thai companies in Hong Kong.
“Through Hong Kong’s role in the opening up of the Pearl River Delta region, our investors and professionals are experienced in the challenges and opportunities of unlocking the potential of new markets. Thai companies can tap into our experience in opening up new markets.”
