20th Anniversary seminar at Manchester Airport
Keynote speech at Take Off 2017
Our DG Priscilla To gave the keynote speech at Take Off 2017 on 28 November, a special event organised by the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) North West at Manchester Airport – inside the Concorde Hangar!
200 people attended the event, which was devised to help UK companies in the North West get ready for international trade – with a special focus on doing trade with Hong Kong – and included an exhibition with stands by banks, airlines, UK Export Finance, Invest Hong Kong, HKTDC Hong Kong Trade and Development Council, and Manchester Airport, followed by panel discussions on various subjects. Attendees also got a fascinating chance to tour Concorde. The event is part of our programme marking the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
