Organizers launch Expo in press conference

Hong Kong will showcase job
opportunities for professionals from all over the world, including the Philippines,
when it holds the CareerConnect Expo on May 7 and 8 in the Hong Kong Convention
and Exhibition Centre.

In an announcement,
organizer Hong Kong Talent Engage (HKTE) said it welcomes talent who are
interested in coming to Hong Kong or have recently arrived in the city,
stakeholders in various sectors who are concerned about talent development,
non-local university students and members of the public.

The Expo will be held in conjunction
with the 
Global Talent Summit · Hong Kong, which “will
bring together international and Mainland leaders from political, academic,
business and other sectors to exchange trends and experiences in talent
development, with a view to promoting Hong Kong’s dual role and advantages as
an international talent hub and our country’s gateway for talent,”
the announcement said.

CareerConnect Expo will
feature an exhibition area to promote Hong Kong’s advantages and development
opportunities, various talent admission schemes as well as HKTE’s support
services. Experience sharing by incoming talent on settling in the city will
also be held.

“Human resources agencies
and recruitment platforms will introduce quality positions of various
professions, including financial services, innovation and technology as well as
financial technology in Hong Kong,” HKTE Director Anthony Lau said.

“Talent who have recently
arrived can also learn about relevant information on job searches, working or
starting a business in Hong Kong as well as the latest skill demands of
different sectors and professions,” he said.

”In addition, some
exhibitors will provide visiting talent and their families with consultation
services and settling-in solutions or offers, with a view to helping them move
to Hong Kong, adapt smoothly and stay in the city for development.”

Nearly 100 public and
private organisations are exhibitors, including HKTE partners (covering
employment, accommodation, social and community networking, integrated
settlement services, education, banking and finance, business and corporate
services as well as telecommunications).

Also participating are government
agencies such as the Office for Attracting Strategic Enterprises, Invest Hong
Kong, the Independent Commission Against Corruption, the Information Services
Department, the Airport Authority Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Cyberport Management
Company Limited, the Hong Kong Productivity Council, the Hong Kong Science and
