The Chief Executive stressed anticipation for cooperation in the "Belt and Road" with the United Arab Emirates to bring trade opportunities for enterprises in Hong Kong, as he finished the visit in Abu Dhabi and departed for Dubai on Wednesday.
In a post published on his Facebook
on Wednesday, Lee described the China-UAE Industrial Capacity Cooperation Demonstration Park in Abu Dhabi, which he and his delegation members visited this morning, as "a versatile development project under the Belt and Road Initiative."
"The success of the Demonstration Park is a testament to the significance and potential of the Belt and Road Initiative," he said.
He added Hong Kong enterprises were encouraged to make good use of overseas Economic and Trade Cooperation Zones and explore business opportunities in Belt and Road countries.
"The UAE is the largest trading partner of Hong Kong in the entire Middle East," Lee said, "working together is the key to our success."
