Party chief hopes to carry out more cooperation with Hong Kong
Shanghai Party Secretary Li Qiang met Yao Cho Fai, chairman of Shanghai-Hong Kong Economic Development Association, and his delegation on June 7.
Li said Shanghai is making all-out efforts to build itself into a world economic, financial, trade, shipping, technology and innovation center, as well as an influential metropolis. The city will strive to achieve high-quality development, create better livelihood for the people, and set up the “four brands” in Shanghai.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the opening-up and reforms of China and Shanghai, so the city will take a more open stance on cooperation with Hong Kong and other countries and regions in various fields.
Shanghai and Hong Kong have so many similarities and cooperation potentials, so it’s expected that the two cities can further the cooperation in finance, technologies, education, cultural industries, and urban management.
The city hopes the Shanghai-Hong Kong Economic Development Association can keep supporting the cooperation and development in both cities, Li added.
Li also briefed his guests on the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta regions.
Yao said the association has witnessed and participated in Shanghai and Hong Kong’s development and benefited by China’s opening-up and reforms since its establishment.
The association hopes to take the opportunity of the new round of opening-up and reforms in Shanghai and the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta regions to strengthen the cooperation in various industries with Shanghai.
Zheng Gangmiao, minister of the United Front Work Department of the CPC Shanghai Committee, and Zhuge Yujie, secretary-general of the CPC Shanghai Committee, also attended the meeting.
