In his keynote speech to the Asian Financial Forum, the Foreign Secretary said:
“Hong Kong’s economy is on a roll. It continues to be a highly attractive place to do business. As one of the world’s leading global financial centres and host to 70 of the world’s largest banks alone, it is a shining example of Asian success and the opportunities this region has to offer.”
