Chief Executive CY Leung

With the China advantage under "one country", we have preferential access to not only the huge market of the Mainland of China, but also one of the world's fastest, and biggest industrial bases. This enables our companies to turn innovations and technologies into products – quickly, and efficiently. Under "two systems", we maintain a network with businesses, universities and research institutes around the world. So we are a super-connector – linking the rest of China with the rest of the world. We bring together all the essential elements for growing I&T – talent, technology, capital, production and market.
