Hong Kong (HKSAR) – Hong Kong is the wine trading and distribution hub for Asia. It is also the world’s largest wine auction centre for three consecutive years. Last year, Hong Kong imported about 50 million litres of wine, with 37 per cent re-exported and 63 per cent consumed within the city, according to Miss Gloria Lo, Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (HKETO) in Toronto.
HKETO encouraged Canadian wine businesses to make use of Hong Kong’s platform as the gateway to the Chinese market which was the biggest market for Canadian wine last year. Miss Lo also promoted to wine traders the Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival to be held by the Hong Kong Tourism Board from October 31 to November 3, and the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Fair by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council from November 7 to 9. These wine events will provide great opportunities for wine tasting and the trading platform for wine dealers and exporters.
