HONG KONG, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Chief Executive of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor on Thursday expressed the hope to boost legal cooperation between Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland.

While meeting with President of the Supreme People's Court of China Zhou Qiang at the Chief Executive's Office, Lam welcomed Zhou to attend the Fourth Seminar of Senior Judges of Cross-Strait and Hong Kong and Macao.

She expressed gratitude to the Supreme People's Court for its continuous support to the mutual legal assistance between the two jurisdictions as well as to Hong Kong as an international legal and dispute resolution service center in the Asia-Pacific region.

Lam said that with its talent and extensive experience in international legal and dispute resolution services, coupled with its dual advantages of "one country, two systems," Hong Kong could provide multi-faceted and professional legal and related services to Chinese mainland enterprises to complement the Belt and Road Initiative and the development plan of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
