Financial Secretary Paul Chan concluded the final day of his visit to Davos, Switzerland, by meeting World Trade Organization (WTO) Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala today.
Accompanied by Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Algernon Yau, Mr Chan gave Ms Okonjo-Iweala a briefing on Hong Kong's latest economic and trade situation.
He also thanked the WTO for reaffirming the free trade regime of Hong Kong, China and its position as one of the world's most important international trade and financial hubs in its Trade Policy Review conducted at the end of last year.
Mr Chan said that Hong Kong would continue to firmly support a rules-based multilateral trading system with the WTO at its core, and actively promote free trade, so as to contribute to a better recovery of the global economy.
