Chief Executive Carrie Lam met CPC Sichuan Provincial Committee Secretary Peng Qinghua at Government House today.


Mrs Lam welcomed Mr Peng and his delegation’s visit to Hong Kong to attend a series of events for the second Sichuan-Hong Kong-Macao Cooperation Week.


She said this year's is the first large-scale Sichuan and Hong Kong event to enhance co-operation between the two places since she and Mr Peng co-chaired the First Plenary of the Hong Kong-Sichuan Co-operation Conference in Sichuan in May.


Mrs Lam noted she and Mr Peng had attended a promotional conference for Cooperation Week on logistics co-operation between Sichuan and Hong Kong.


The Chief Executive added she was pleased to witness the signing of a framework agreement on enhancing the development of logistics channels between the governments of both sides to strengthen co-operation in areas including transport development, logistics business and related talent and technology.


They will also attend an economic and trade co-operation forum as part of Cooperation Week and the opening ceremony of Ocean Park's Sichuan Week 2018 tomorrow.


Mrs Lam said the recent commissioning of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link Hong Kong Section and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, as well as the upcoming opening of the new land-based Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai Boundary Control Point, will strengthen Hong Kong's participation in the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and its future overall advancement.


Noting that Sichuan is constructing a new airport and developing infrastructure for a sea-land channel, the Chief Executive hopes both places would leverage on each other's geographical advantages to explore further co-operation including airport management, air transport and logistics, nurture of talent and e-commerce.
