Hong Kong is open to endless trade possibilities after Manchester tech delegation hits town

Manchester was well represented on a trade mission to Hong Kong last week with strong interest in tech partnerships. 

Manchester tech businesses Aibytech, Quantum Science, Total Processing and Vulse were on the trip, where they also encountered Gary Neville and Simon Ismail from Salboy marketing the luxury development at St Michael’s in Manchester city centre.

Manchester tech enabler Naomi Timperley said she came away with the strong message that Hong Kong is “unequivocally” open for business. “The city’s strategic location, coupled with its robust infrastructure and business-friendly environment, makes it an ideal launchpad for companies looking to expand in Asia and beyond. There is a huge amount of support available for UK businesses wanted to set up in Hong Kong.”

She was there with Russ Shaw founder of Tech London Advocates (TLA) and Global Tech Advocates (GTA), private sector led groups of leaders promoting tech ecosystems and addressing the issues on the horizon. 

She also told TheBusinessDesk.com that the trip was more than just a visit.

“It was an eye-opening experience into what the future of technology holds and how interconnected our global business community is. Hong Kong is most definitely open for business, and I am excited about the endless possibilities that lie ahead,” she said.
