The Belt and Road Summit brings together senior government officials, representatives of international institutions, business leaders and industry experts from countries along and beyond the Belt and Road to exchange views on multilateral co-operation and explore new business opportunities arising from the Belt and Road Initiative.
The Honorable Mayor Jopet Inton of the Local Government Unit of Hermosa attended the Belt and Road Summit at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre last June 28, 2018, organized by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Hong Kong Trade Development Council with the theme, Collaborate for Success.
Mayor Inton’s established long-term relationship with the Hong Kong Development Council made him the lone government official in the Philippines to have been invited at the Belt and Road Summit.
Mayor Jopet’s attendance has definitely promoted closer economic co-operation among participant countries. It is expected that more investment projects would emerge to strengthen the connectivity between the Municipality of Hermosa, Bataan and its potential partners whilst creating immense business opportunities.
