Speaking at the opening reception, Mr Leung highlighted Hong Kong's role as a gateway for trade between the Chinese mainland and the ASEAN region, adding that a Hong Kong-ASEAN Free Trade Agreement (FTA) would be concluded within the coming year. "It (the FTA) will, I know, strengthen economic ties and cooperation between Hong Kong and Indonesia," said Mr Leung. "With our [Hong Kong's] help, it will encourage more Indonesian exports to the mainland of China. Inevitably, more Hong Kong and mainland investment will also find its way to Indonesia."

Meanwhile, Mr Yahya said "In Style - Hong Kong" was an important business gathering for Indonesia. "It is enhancing the partnership between Indonesia and Hong Kong, especially in trade, investment and tourism," he said.

Chairman of the HKTDC Vincent HS Lo explained that "In Style - Hong Kong" is an expansion of previous expo's organised by the HKTDC in Jakarta. "This event is bigger and better. In addition to products, we have added today's business symposium where you can find and network with core business leaders and find out how to take advantage of Hong Kong's world-class services to grow your business," said Mr Lo.

Also speaking at the opening reception, Secretary, Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs of the Republic of Indonesia Agus Muharram said Hong Kong was a gateway for Indonesian companies, "not only to the Hong Kong and China markets, but also the global market as well as [providing] potential for Indonesian cooperatives and small and medium-sized enterprises products."

"By maintaining a good relationship between Indonesia and Hong Kong, we hope that this will present good results in export market expansion and promotion of Indonesian cooperatives and small and medium-sized enterprises products," said Mr Muharram.

Services under the spotlight

The services symposium features five thematic sessions highlighting ways Hong Kong services, including financial services, legal and arbitration, design and branding services, digital marketing and ICT services, can help Indonesian companies expand their business in Asia, and especially the Chinese mainland.

Product expo features lifestyle themes

In addition to showcasing Hong Kong's services, more than 190 participating companies are also presenting Hong Kong lifestyle products in four major themed zones; fashion and fashion accessories, jewellery and watches, gifts and houseware, and consumer electronics. There is also a display of award-winning pieces.

An invitation-only gala dinner will be held this evening for some 500 businesspeople from Hong Kong and Indonesia. The "In Style - Hong Kong" citywide campaign continues through 20 September, the centerpiece of which is a Hong Kong galleria at the Skybridge in Grand Indonesia Shopping Town.
