From the day the British took possession of the Island of Hong Kong in 1841, HK has been a major place for buying and sourcing. Asia's World City is still a very important buying and sourcing hub today.
On 16 September, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Brussels, InvestHK and the NHKBA will jointly organise an event which will focus on the role of Hong Kong as a buying and sourcing hub.
If you are interested in sourcing and buying in or via Hong Kong, you cannot afford to miss this meeting.
Note: the webinar will be organised via Eventbrite. After registering for the event, you will receive a link to attend the webinar separately by mail.
