HONG KONG, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government information services department announced Wednesday that Chief Executive Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor will leave for a visit to Myanmar Thursday.

Lam's visit is mainly for attending the 14th World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention (WCEC) to be held in Yangon on Sept. 16 and delivering a speech at the event as invited. She will return to Hong Kong in the early hours on Sept. 17.

Held in various cities once every two years since 1991, the WCEC aims to provide a platform for Chinese entrepreneurs and the business and industrial sector from around the world to enhance economic cooperation and understanding.

HKSAR and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) had earlier announced the conclusion of negotiations on a Free Trade Agreement and a related Investment Agreement.

Following her visits to Singapore and Thailand in early August, Myanmar will be the third ASEAN country the chief executive visits.
