  • Description

    EXPORTERS IN THE BRITISH COLONY OF HONG KONG ARE STEPPING UP THEIR EFFORTS TO INCREASE THE COLONY'S SHARE OF THE BRITISH MARKET. THE FIRST DIRECT SELLING MISSION WHICH HONG KONG HAS SENT TO BRITAIN OPENED A DISPLAY OF GOODS TODAY (TUESDAY) AT THE HONG KONG DISPLAY CENTRE IN LONDON'S PALL MALL.

    THE DISPLAY WILL CONTINUE UNTIL THE 9TH OF THIS WEEK. SOME 13 HONG KONG EXPORTING AND MANUFACTURING FIRMS ARE REPRESENTED IN THE TRADE MISSION, WHICH WAS ORGANISED BY THE HONG KONG EXPORTERS' ASSOCIATION AND THE HONG KONG TRADE DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL. SIX OF THE 13 FIRMS ARE MANUFACTURERS AND EXPORTERS OF TEXTILES. IT'S ESTIMATED THAT ONE OUT OF VERY SIX PEOPLE IN HONG KONG DEPENDS ON TEXTILES FOR A LIVELIHOOD.

    ANOTHER BIG HONG KONG EXPORT IT TOYS. LAST YEAR'S EXPORT FIGURES OF OVER GBP35,000,000 WAS A RECORD FOR THE TOY INDUSTRY, IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT, IN HONG KONG, IT'S AN INDUSTRY ONLY 15 YEARS OLD.

    BRITAIN IS ALREADY HONG KONG'S BEST CUSTOMER, AFTER THE UNITED STATES. HOWEVER, BRITAIN ONLY COMES FOURTH AFTER THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, JAPAN AND THE UNITED STATES IN THE COMPETITION FOR THE HONG KONG MARKET.
