HKETCO takes part in Central Taiwan Lantern Festival to promote HK (18.2.2013)

The Hong Kong Economic, Trade and Cultural Office (Taiwan) (HKETCO) is taking part in the 2013 Central Taiwan Lantern Festival, as a co-organiser, to promote Hong Kong in Taiwan. Located at a main entrance of the festival venue, the Hong Kong lanterns for this year feature a pair of wealth gods more than five metres tall. With a modern and lively image, one of the wealth gods is holding a gold ingot and a jade ruyi symbolising good wealth and fortune, while another is holding a Chinese fai chun bringing blessings to the people.
