Dubai and Hong Kong forge partnership to activate economic corridor


The governments of Dubai and Hong Kong have signed an agreement to establish an economic corridor for promoting cross border trading and strengthening cooperation in financial services.

The partnership will also support the development of family offices and collaboration between the two cities in fintech, virtual assets and green finance.

Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) and Hong Kong’s Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at the two-day Belt and Road Summit in Hong Kong.

The MoU supports the goals of the Dubai Economic Agenda D33, to consolidate Dubai’s status as one of the world’s top three cities and double the city’s economy in the next decade.

"This strategic alliance is another milestone for Dubai and symbolises our commitment towards realising the vision of our leadership’s ambitions to position Dubai as one of the world’s top four global financial capitals, as well as building an economic corridor in partnership with Hong Kong, China to generate incremental and sustainable economic growth," said Hadi Badri, CEO of the Dubai Economic Development Corporation at DET.
