Hong Kong seals wine deal with Bordeaux

It aims to cement the city’s role as the region’s leading wine centre.

Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau has signed an agreement on co-operation in wine-related education and manpower training with Patrick Seguin, visiting President of the Chamber of Commerce & Industry Bordeaux Gironde, according to a government statement.

As Bordeaux wines have strong presence in Hong Kong, the pact will expand the scope of cooperation between the two territories’ respective wine businesses.

"Hong Kong is Asia's wine hub and a wine free-port, and has a strong demand for talents with expertise in fine wines and culinary arts,” Yau said in a statement. “We look forward to aspiring young people in Hong Kong making the best out of new training opportunities in Bordeaux."

Hong Kong has similar wine co-operation agreements with Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and the US.
