Trade Agreements

86.    Government will strive to pursue trade and investment agreements to expand our commercial and trading networks, creating more favourable conditions for Hong Kong enterprises to access the Mainland and overseas markets.  We have conducted five rounds of free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).  We hope that the negotiations will be concluded this year.  We shall also actively seek to participate in the FTAs that have been or will be concluded between the Mainland and other places.

87.    Last November, the Mainland and Hong Kong signed an Agreement on Trade in Services under the framework of CEPA.  The agreement has basically achieved the full liberalisation of trade in services between the two places, facilitating our services industry's access to the Mainland market.  We shall also seek to conclude discussions on a closer economic partnership arrangement with Macao this year.
