HKTB Chairman Dr Peter Lam said: “Since its debut, the CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival has become one of the most anticipated mega events of the year. It draws a large number of festival-goers, both tourists and locals, and is widely reported in global media, so it generates a lot of international exposure for the city. This year, we are expanding the scale of the event, presenting fine wines from 26 countries and an enriched variety of gastronomic delights in the five distinct themed zones for all the participants’ enjoyment. The HKTB would like to thank our sponsors and participating partners, especially China Construction Bank (Asia), for making this event possible. We also appreciate the continued support from all the government departments and related organisations.”

Vice-Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of China Construction Bank (Asia) Mr Jiang Xianzhou said: “This year marks the third consecutive year that our bank title-sponsors the CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival, we feel honored to work hand-in-hand with the Hong Kong Tourism Board in organising this renowned annual event for local citizens and tourists. Originated from the Bank of Canton, the first Chinese-owned bank in Hong Kong since 1912, next year would be CCB (Asia)’s 105th anniversary. Over the past hundred years, we have witnessed the rapid development of this city. The Bank actively
supports local mega events to contribute to the community. We wish this year’s CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival a great success, and all participants have an unforgettable time with their family and friends.”
