Wang Jinxia said that the benefits of Hong Kong-funded enterprises in Qianhai are very good, providing about 1/4 of the total economic output, and the actual use of foreign capital accounts for 89%. Qianhai is an area where the Hong Kong-funded enterprises are most concentrated and enjoy the fastest development, and it is also the most desirable area for Hong Kong capital. “Our Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Youth Innovation and Entrepreneur Hub have fostered 193 innovation and entrepreneur teams from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and have received more than 50,000 young people from Hong Kong to visit and inspect.”
After visiting the hub, Sararh Fatima, journalist from the National Television of Maldives, expressed that when young people begin to start their own businesses, a broad and convenient platform provided by the government like this hub will help them to broaden horizon, improve capability, and reduce difficulties that may occur in the process, which enables them to open the market for their products as soon as possible, make their businesses larger and stronger, and eventually introduce their products to the whole world.
