Addressing the media launch ceremony, the Director-General of HKETO Jakarta, Mr Law Kin-wai, said that Hong Kong is a highly international city with immense appeal beyond its widely known advantages in business and trade. He cited as an example the landmark development of the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD), an emerging global arts and cultural hub featuring world-class attractions including the Xiqu Centre, the M+ museum and the Hong Kong Palace Museum.
Mr Law added that under the 14th Five-Year Plan of the country, Hong Kong is clearly positioned as an East-meets-West centre for international cultural and arts exchange. The city will further consolidate its relevant edge with the completion of the East Kowloon Cultural Centre, the Lyric Theatre Complex in the WKCD, and the Kai Tak Sports Park as a mega performance venue.
Also speaking at the event, the Regional Director of Southeast Asia of the HKTB, Mr Raymond Chan, said that Hong Kong has always been close to the hearts of Malaysian travellers, and Malaysia is an important key source market for Hong Kong. With the new infrastructure development and experiences in Hong Kong, the city cannot wait to welcome Malaysian travellers back to Hong Kong to experience the new tourism offerings.
During the event, HKETO Jakarta presented the event's theme song of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR, “Heading Forward”, to share the joy and excitement of this important milestone. The HKTB also invited local celebrities and artists in Malaysia to highlight the latest information and must-go spots for tourists visiting Hong Kong through interactive activities and artwork, showcasing the city’s unique character with its iconic East-meets-West culture and a dynamic mix of the old and the new.
