The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) is organising an advanced online exhibition, Summer Sourcing Weeks Go Online, as part of HKTDC’s initiatives to expand the e-commerce capabilities of Hong Kong businesses. Running from now until August 7, the event connects global buyers to over 1,300 exhibitors with products ranging from electronics, information and communications technology (ICT), and houseware, to fashion, gifts, as well as printing and packaging products.
This virtual fair will also be showcasing a diverse range of local healthcare products in the Smart Health Hong Kong zone including nanofiber-technology air filters, air sanitisers, quarantine tracking technology, and even an AI-assisted body temperature screening system.
Benjamin Chau, HKTDC Deputy Executive Director explains that this platform also introduces multiple new functions, such as the AI-enabled Click2Match business matching platform and other functions covering live chat and online seminars to facilitate better business connections between global buyers and suppliers.
Since the outbreak, the HKTDC has been actively helping small and medium enterprises to integrate into the digital market. By fostering stronger connections with a number of technology partners, HKTDC aims to provide local businesses with more cost-effective digital solutions. Mr Chau also added that new interfaces and functions for the HKTDC website will be further enhanced and relaunched later this year to improve business matching efficiency for both buyers and businesses.
