I was pleased to host a table of small businesses from the City of Sydney at the Greater Bay Area symposium. Thank you to the Hong Kong Economic Trade Office for organising the event. Throughout COVID some businesses have continued to grow trade relationships as they look towards the next chapter of growth. Exporting through the Greater Bay Area is one way of “dipping an export toe” into the Asia region. This symposium was a great opportunity for businesses to plan their expansion overseas and I was pleased to host some terrific Sydney companies ready to take the plunge.
