The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) hosted the ‘Mauritius – Hong Kong Business Forum’ on the Wednesday 20th of November 2019 at Le Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel. Corporates, Businessmen, Commerce and related partners in the industry had the opportunity to explore the Hong Kong – Mauritius market and to engage with the HKTDC delegates for new business ventures and opportunities.


Mr. Barlen Pillay, guest speaker at the event, highlighted the different trade and investment opportunities that the Mauritian business community can exploit in Hong Kong. He also underlined the huge African Market that Hong Kong business people can be accessed through Mauritius. The event also saw the presence of Mr. Francois Guibert, CEO of Economic Development Board, who delivered a presentation on the business climate in Mauritius.


The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) is a statutory body established in 1966 to promote, assist and develop Hong Kong's trade. With 50 offices globally, including 13 in Mainland China, the HKTDC promotes Hong Kong as a two-way global investment and business hub. The HKTDC's mission is to create opportunities for Hong Kong companies, by focusing on delivering value by promoting trade in goods and services, while connecting the world's small-and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through Hong Kong's business platform. 


The MCCI and the HKTDC have agreed to further consolidate their relations through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the two organisations.
