My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Industry also visited Hong Kong during the course of this month. Extensive Government help is available to British companies wishing to sell to Hong Kong, including the services of the British trade commission in Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong trade advisory group, credit facilities supported by the Export Credits Guarantee Department and the export services of the British Overseas Trade Board.
