La Motte was recently honored to host Mr John Tsang, Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government and his delegation of Hong Kong business people and professionals.
Mr Tsang and his delegation were in South Africa to explore business opportunities including those in the wine industry. At the meeting at La Motte, they were given an overview of the South African wine industry by WOSA CEO Su Birch.
Mr Tsang said it was one his government’s priority policies to broaden Hong Kong’s cooperation with emerging markets such as South Africa.
“Through this visit, I hope that we can forge even closer ties with South Africa and offer the business and professional sectors of Hong Kong a broader perspective of the market,” he said.
