More than 200 business people from New Zealand participated in the conversation. The Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Qiu Tenghua and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Development Commissioner Yuan Minzhong also attended.

At the meeting, Lam Cheng not only talked about Hong Kong's commercial advantages, but also responded to the issue of travel restrictions.

She said that in view of the relatively stable epidemic in New Zealand, the mandatory quarantine period for people entering Hong Kong from the local area has been reduced from 21 days to 14 days last month.

She hopes that through the continuous efforts of the two places, we will further explore the introduction of measures such as "tourism bubbles" to facilitate cross-border exchanges between the two places.

Regarding the immigration situation, the report quoted Lam Cheng as saying that he hoped that people would fall in love with this place and would like to stay here and make a family, instead of treating Hong Kong as a place for business.
