Empowering enterprises to seize lucrative GBA and ASEAN business opportunities
HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach Newswire – 11 December 2023 – As a prominent technology, media, and telecommunications leader in Hong Kong, HKT (SEHK: 6823) has leveraged its worldwide information and communication technology capabilities to extend the reach of over 30 Chinese companies to ASEAN markets in 2023 while facilitating multinational corporations’ entry into mainland China, consolidating the Group’s position as a springboard for Chinese and global enterprises seeking to venture into and outside of the China market.
During the year, Hong Kong deepened its cooperation with ASEAN states while their leaders reaffirmed their support for the city’s accession to the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), underscoring its unique position as a gateway to regional markets. Against this backdrop, HKT leveraged its geographical edge and international network coverage to empower the ICT expansion of over 30 mainland companies to 107 ASEAN touchpoints.
Meanwhile, HKT also emerged as an ideal springboard for Hong Kong and global enterprises entering the mainland market, particularly in the Greater Bay Area. This includes automotive industry players enticed by China’s high consumer demand and strong government support such as tax incentives and relaxed foreign investment regulations, especially for new-energy vehicles. Harman and Brusa are among those who have leveraged our strategic network, all-round capabilities and policy-aligned resources to capture growing opportunities through efficient cross-boundaries digital transformation.
“HKT is dedicated to propelling the regional growth of Hong Kong enterprises and MNCs while accelerating the expansion of mainland Chinese companies into the global market,” said Steve Ng, Managing Director, Commercial Group at HKT. “Supported by our digital solutions, particularly our software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), secure access service edge (SASE) and Enterprise Managed Services (EMS), these companies have achieved outstanding performance. Their success stories reaffirm HKT’s unwavering commitment to excellence and our ability to deliver exceptional results for our valued clients.”
HKT’s extensive portfolio of innovative digital solutions encompasses Premium Internet, Wi-Fi, cybersecurity, cloud and more.
