Hong Kong's advantages promoted at the 2005 OutsourceWorld LondonI had the privilege to lead a delegation of Hong Kong companies to attend the 2005 OutsourceWorld London event in the end of June. It was the second such event we joined, as part of the IT Outsourcing promotional missions for Hong Kong, funded by the SME Development Fund of the Trade and Industry Department of the HKSAR Government. (We went to San Diego in February.) The following is an article on the online journal of Hong Kong Trade Development Council.
Hong Kong's advantages promoted at the 2005 OutsourceWorld London
Hong Kong companies used a top Eurpoean show as a beachhead into the UK outsourcing sector when they visited London last week. Outsource World (29 - 30 June) attracted up to a thousand visitors and more than 60 exhibitors to the Royal Horticultural Hall in Victoria, London for the conference and exhibition.
Six companies exhibited at the event on the Hong Kong pavilion organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (TDC), Hong Kong Information Technology Federation (HKITF) and Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) to promote Hong Kong as the world's trusted outsourcing partner with China.
Both Hong Kong and China are emerging in terms of their participation in the global market of outsourcing, according to Michael Corbett, executive director and founder of the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP).
