Hong Kong’s top economic official will lead a 48-person delegation to Cambodia on Monday and Tuesday to explore business opportunities related to China’s Belt and Road Initiative, according to a release from the official’s office.

Edward Yau, Hong Kong’s Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, will spend two days in Phnom Penh meeting with business and government representatives, the Hong Kong Business Association of Cambodia and the Chinese Ambassador.

“The mission is the first of its kind to Southeast Asia since we signed a free trade agreement and a related investment agreement with ASEAN,” Yau said. “It will enable our delegation [to]…get first-hand information on the local business environment and open up collaboration opportunities.”

The delegation will move on to Vietnam following its visit to Phnom Penh and return to Hong Kong on Friday.
