Top mainland and Hong Kong officials threw their support behind the city's push to play an enthusiastic role in the Belt and Road Initiative. That role emphasizes advantages that are expected to enable the Asian financial center to move forward amid social turbulence and geopolitical storms.

"The connectivity and cooperation promoted by the Belt and Road have become increasingly prominent in today's complex social and business environment," Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said at the Belt and Road Summit in Hong Kong on Wednesday.

The two-day event, in its fourth edition, was jointly organized by the HKSAR government and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council. It attracted nearly 5,000 participants and over 80 government officials and business leaders from over 60 countries and regions.
