Addressing the media launch ceremony, the Director-General of HKETO Jakarta, Mr Law Kin-wai, said that Hong Kong is a highly international city with immense appeal beyond its widely known advantages in business and trade. He cited as an example the landmark development of the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD), an emerging global arts and cultural hub featuring world-class attractions including the Xiqu Centre, the M+ museum and the Hong Kong Palace Museum.

Mr Law added that under the 14th Five-Year Plan of the country, Hong Kong is clearly positioned as an East-meets-West centre for international cultural and arts exchange. The city will further consolidate its relevant edge with the completion of the East Kowloon Cultural Centre, the Lyric Theatre Complex in the WKCD, and the Kai Tak Sports Park as a mega performance venue.
