Welcome to the web page of the Hong Kong-Taiwan Economic and Cultural Cooperation and Promotion Council.
Hong Kong and Taiwan have always had a close relationship. More than two million Taiwanese visit Hong Kong every year for business or leisure purposes. Taiwan and Hong Kong are each other’s fourth largest trading partners, and total trade between the two economies is on an upward trend. In order to grasp the opportunities arising from closer relations across the Straits in recent years, a number of initiatives promoting exchanges between the two places have been introduced to enhance Hong Kong-Taiwan relations and interaction. The establishment of the Hong Kong-Taiwan Economic and Cultural Cooperation and Promotion Council (ECCPC) in April 2010 was one of the initiatives to further promote multi-faceted, multi-level exchanges with Taiwan. The ECCPC engages its Taiwanese counterpart, the Taiwan-Hong Kong Economic and Cultural Co-operation Council (THEC), in discussions and negotiations on various public policy related issues of mutual interest to both places. Although the ECCPC is not a government entity, the HKSAR Government provides full support and resources to the Council to enable it to pursue its relevant work and activities.
I invite you to visit this web page which provides information on the work and latest news of the ECCPC. If you have any comments or suggestions on this web page or our work, please let us know by e-mail or by mail.
