BOAO /China/, March 27. /TASS/. Hong Kong will continue talks with Russia on signing the Investment promotion and protection agreement (IPPA), Liang Zhenying, Chief Executive of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, told the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2015 on Friday.
At present Hong Kong is taking steps to intensify relations with its Asian neighbors, he said.
The official said that Hong Kong has already signed IPPAs with Myanmar and Bahrein and later this year will continue similar consultations with UAE and Russia.
