Economic diplomacy – China – Laurent Fabius to receive Hong Kong/Europe Business Council (Paris, May 11, 2015)


Laurent Fabius will receive, at the Quai d’Orsay on May 11, the members of the Hong Kong/Europe Business Council, which brings together major European and Hong Kong companies; its annual meeting will take place in Paris this year.

We attach great importance to our economic relations with Hong Kong, with which we have a large trade surplus: In 2014, France recorded a surplus of €3.7 billion with the autonomous region.

The meeting on May 11, in which French companies will participate, will provide an opportunity to promote bilateral exchanges and France’s attractiveness to Hong Kong investors.
