Myanmar State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi met with Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, chief executive of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) at the Presidential Office in Nay Pyi Taw Friday.
The two sides discussed the promotion of education, health, investment and trade.
Lam arrived in Myanmar Thursday to attend the 14th World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention (WCEC) scheduled in Yangon Saturday.
She also met with Myanmar's Vice President U Myint Swe and visited the Maniyadana Jade Hall in the capital.
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 is the third ASEAN country that the chief executive visited.
