Financial Secretary Paul Chan said the government plans to hold an international financial forum during the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens tournament in November.
Speaking on the RTHK programme Overview Policy, he said he expects to invite up to 200 top executives from the mainland and overseas to watch rugby, hold meetings and see for themselves how vibrant the city is.
Chan said this will make them more confident about stepping up investments in Hong Kong.
He added that the SAR will benefit further if the executives can also visit the Greater Bay Area, saying Japanese, European and American entrepreneurs are interested in the area's development.
Meanwhile, the minister hopes to attract more tourists to the city after the pandemic is over, saying more funding is being earmarked for InvestHK and the Tourism Board in this year's budget to promote Hong Kong.
