In the British colony of Hong Kong, the Chinese Manufacturers' Association staged their 18th exhibition, Dec 7. A big crowd watched the Governor of Hong Kong, Sir Robert Black, officially open it.
After cutting silken tapes across the entrance to the exhibition building, Sir Robert, accompanied by officials of the Chinese Manufacturers' Association, toured the exhibition. A wide variety of goods that Hong Kong has been marketing cheaply for many years was on display - including vacuum flasks, lampshades, dolls and toys.
In his opening address, Sir Robert spoke of the growing interest shown by foreign investors in Hong Kong's industrial possibilities. This interest reflected great world confidence in Hong Kong's economy, he said, and a recognition of the ability of the people who lived there.
