In the past 3 years of the "Belt and Road" initiative, the newly appointed commissioner Ho Lizhi said that the "Belt and Road" has invested more than 000,10 projects in the past, the original intention is to open up the network with countries along the route, including the connection of policies and facilities, etc., many projects have begun to "open to traffic", lowering the threshold for doing business in countries along the route, believing that the harvest period of the "Belt and Road" has been entered, and believes that the work in the next <> years will mainly mobilize the business community, professional services and private markets to participate.

Ho Lizhi added that as an international financial centre, Hong Kong should attract global capital into the Greater Bay Area through Hong Kong, so that Hong Kong SMEs can get a piece of the pie. In addition, enterprises in the Greater Bay Area or Hong Kong go to countries along the Belt and Road to explore business opportunities, and different chambers of commerce or the HKTDC will have matching jobs.
In terms of performance indicators (KPIs), Ho said that he hoped to discuss with different ministries and commissions of the Mainland, central SOEs and state-owned enterprises on the Belt and Road projects, so that Hong Kong's professional services could be co-operated. He said that Hong Kong, as a super-connector, should be repositioned as a "high value-added link" to attract businesses from countries along the Belt and Road to Hong Kong or to the Greater Bay Area through Hong Kong.

The government opens the door and the business community then explores business opportunities
As for the specific work, the "Belt and Road" office has been visiting abroad, and will go out more in the future, planning to go to Southeast Asia or the Middle East, etc., at which time the official delegation may bring young entrepreneurs to visit abroad. He added that there are many business opportunities in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, and since Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu personally led a delegation to the Middle East and ASEAN this year, both chamber think tanks and business delegations have had the opportunity to explore business opportunities, describing that "(the government) has opened many doors, and (the business community) has to open small doors".
The handover of the family business to a colleague is said to not constitute a conflict of interest
The post of Belt and Road Commissioner has been vacant for more than half a year, and it has been nearly one month since the chairman of the local architect firm, Ho Lizhi, took office. Having put down his family business, he said that he is no stranger to the work of the "Belt and Road", and has visited the government to explore the business opportunities of the "Belt and Road" before. As to whether it would constitute a conflict of interest, Ho said that the family business was mature and the business had been taken over by other colleagues, saying that the procedures had been followed and the relevant government mechanisms were comprehensive and he did not believe that it constituted a conflict of interest. He also described the work as a long way off, applying when he noticed the recruitment, and receiving support from his family.
