Reinforcing economic ties and building regional prosperity together - DAB’s ASEAN Visit 2022

Updated: Sep 14, 2022

August 31, 2022

Hong Kong endured the social incidents in 2019 and the epidemic for more than two years, and she now faced the most severe power politics by major countries in a century. Ill-intentioned people took use of the opportunity to make a fuss of some common issues, mislead people overseas about the situation in Hong Kong. We felt the need to respond to the malicious smear and misunderstandings and to explain the real situation in Hong Kong to people overseas, in order to shape a positive narrative of Hong Kong and China.

On September 4, three DAB delegations set off to visit five ASEAN countries and meet local chambers of commerce, professional groups, youth organizations and local investors. Our aim was to deepen mutual understanding, promote mutually beneficial economic, trade and social cooperation between Hong Kong and ASEAN, and to build regional prosperity together.
