The 2018 summit drew more than 80 international speakers was attended by some 5,000 distinguished government officials and business leaders. The event drew approximately 100 delegations and more than 230 investment projects were on offer. There were also more than 520 business-matching meetings. The exhibition featured 100 stands showcasing the strengths of 100 organisations. Half the delegates came from Hong Kong, 29% from Mainland China and 11% from ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries, with the balance coming from the rest of the world.
WHERE: Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
AND YOU CAN QUOTE ME: I think the Belt and Road event in Hong Kong is the only big regional event that focuses on the Belt and Road. This event is also a great opportunity to meet fellow participants and investors.
