Zhang said Heilongjiang has rich natural resources for Hong Kong investors. The province welcomes investors from Hong Kong to purchase shares of state-owned enterprises or establish new ventures.


He said Heilongjiang will focus on the construction of petro-chemical, energy, food, pharmaceutical, forestry industry bases, as measures for rejuvenation of the old industry bases.


John Tsang Chun-wah, Hong Kong's secretary for Commerce, Industry and Technology, said that Hong Kong has always been the largest overseas investor in Heilongjiang.


Besides, Hong Kong can also become the financing center and the springboard of Heilongjiang enterprises to enter the international market, said Tsang, adding that Hong Kong's talents, information, finance, logistics and legal services can help Heilongjiang enterprises explore the overseas markets.
