At present, the preparatory work of the exhibition is being carried out in an intense and orderly manner. Recently, in view of the background and significance of the exhibition, the main characteristics of the exhibition and the current progress of exhibition and investment attraction, which are generally concerned by people in the industry, this magazine made an exclusive interview with Xie Senshu, general manager of China Exhibition Group Huagang International Exhibition Co., Ltd., the main person in charge of the exhibition organizing committee

With regard to the background and significance of holding the first Hong Kong International Printing and packaging exhibition, general manager Xie Senshu said: the exhibition, jointly hosted by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and Huagang International Exhibition Co., Ltd., has been highly valued by the central government of China and the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative region since its inception, and has received the attention of the China Council for the promotion of international trade Strong support and enthusiastic sponsorship from well-known professional institutions in the industry, such as the China printing and equipment industry association, the Hong Kong Printing Industry Association, the Hong Kong Printing Association and the Hong Kong Packaging Association. This strong combination of the exhibition itself shows that it will be an important event of specialization, internationalization and branding with high starting point, multi-function and large perspective. This exhibition will be the first in the history of Hong Kong Industrial Exhibition. The successful holding of the exhibition will not only help China's printing and packaging industry expand its market and go global, but also will further promote the implementation of CEPA agreement, promote the Pan Pearl River Delta (9 + 2) regional economic cooperation, and consolidate Hong Kong's important position as the "Asian exhibition city", Maintaining the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong has played an important practical role and far-reaching social impact

as you know, Hong Kong implements "one country, two systems" politically. It is a world-famous financial center, trade center and shipping center. It is also a world-renowned "free trade port" and "Asian exhibition capital". Geographically, Hong Kong is backed by Guangdong and faces the Asia Pacific region. It is at the intersection of the "China ASEAN Free Trade Area" and the "Pan Pearl River Delta economic cooperation area", and has unique regional advantages. Hong Kong has a beautiful environment and convenient transportation; Advanced facilities and perfect services; Mature market and sound legal system; Hong Kong's unique urban charm, strong business atmosphere and superior exhibition environment are unmatched by any city in mainland China at present

Hong Kong is one of the four major printing centers in the world and an important media service and information center in the Asia Pacific region. The printing and packaging industry is an important pillar industry in Hong Kong, with an annual output value of 35 billion Hong Kong dollars, and the annual export volume of printing and packaging products and services exceeds 10 billion Hong Kong dollars. Guangdong Province is a famous "hometown of printing and packaging" in China. At present, there are nearly 10000 printing and packaging enterprises. In 2005, the annual output value of the industry in Guangdong Province exceeded 80billion yuan, accounting for about 1/3 of the country, and the annual growth rate of the industry reached more than 20%. Since the reform and opening up, with the relocation of some production processes of Hong Kong printing and packaging enterprises, the printing and packaging industry in Guangdong and Hong Kong has gradually formed a new development pattern of internal and external integration, front store and back factory, resource sharing, mutual benefit and win-win results. For a long time, taking Guangdong as the base and Hong Kong as the window to jointly build an international multilateral trade platform with two-way import and export orientation for China's printing and packaging industry has become a strong desire for the development of the industry and the common aspiration of industry insiders

however, due to the structural limitations of the existing Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center (Wanchai), the site conditions for holding industrial exhibitions have not been met for a long time. In order to promote the in-depth development of Hong Kong's Convention and exhibition industry, the Hong Kong government, together with relevant parties, invested 2 HK $261million to gradually create a new business model of "partner", and built the Hong Kong Asia International Expo on Lantau Island. On December 21, 2005, the museum was officially completed, and the Hong Kong subway and the airport rapid transit were also opened at the same time. On that day, Mr. Donald Tsang, the chief executive of Hong Kong, attended the opening ceremony in person. Ms. Zhong min, the chief representative of the representative office of the China Council for the promotion of international trade in Hong Kong and Macao, also attended the opening ceremony on behalf of the host organization. The completion of the new pavilion ended the history that Hong Kong could not hold industrial exhibitions in one fell swoop, and provided a rare historical opportunity for holding large-scale electromechanical exhibitions in Hong Kong

in order to seize the important strategic opportunity after the implementation of the CEPA agreement, strive to promote the construction of the "China ASEAN Free Trade Area", actively resolve the current adverse factors such as trade protectionism and various trade barriers encountered in China's foreign trade, and further increase the export scope and promotion of China's mechanical and electrical products, under the warm care and cordial guidance of the central government and the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, With the strong support of professional institutions in the two places, China International Exhibition Group Huagang International Exhibition Co., Ltd. and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council have carefully considered that the industry foundation and venue conditions for holding industrial exhibitions in Hong Kong are mature. Taking advantage of the completion of the new Hong Kong Pavilion to open the first industrial exhibition in Hong Kong's history is not only the call of the times for China's printing and packaging industry to explore the international market in the new era, but also a timely move to seize the opportunity, innovate independently, and write a new chapter in Hong Kong's exhibition history. In addition, Huagang company will also cooperate with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council to hold the "Hong Kong International Building Materials and Construction Machinery Exhibition" in October 2006
