Finance Minister to meet Hong Kong leaders

8:31 pm on 18 March 2013

Finance Minister Bill English is in Hong Kong this week where he will speak at the annual Asia Investment Conference and meet business and political leaders.

Mr English says trade with Asia is increasingly important, and he hopes his trip will help the Government's business growth agenda, which is aimed at boosting exports from 30% to 40% of GDP by 2025.

Mr English will meet Hong Kong's Financial Secretary, John Tsang.
