HONG KONG - A Chinese official said here Wednesday that China will continue to go global in this new era with new opportunities brought to the world, especially to Hong Kong.

Xie Feng, commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China (CPC) in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), made the remarks at a briefing to foreign chambers of commerce in Hong Kong and representatives of multinational corporations on the outcome as well as significance of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

"We are promoting China's socialist modernization drive and are working to ensure the faithful implementation of 'one country, two systems' in Hong Kong. This will bring opportunities to not only Hong Kong but also countries and business communities around the globe," Xie said.

The Commissioner said that, for Hong Kong and Hong Kong-based foreign companies, opportunities come from Hong Kong's integration into the national development's strategy. Support will be given to the HKSAR in leveraging its advantages and role in national development strategies such as the Belt and Road Initiative and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Andrew Seaton, executive director of the British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, said that the international business community welcomes the initiatives for the latest development of Chinese economy, some of which have already caught a high level of interest among foreign businesses.
