Event Details


China's economic recovery after Covid is not as fast as many had expected, and its slowdown has negatively impacted the Hong Kong economy. Therefore, this timely Conference will examine the outlook of China's economy and how China faces its challenges, as well as stimulating some deeper thinking about how businesses in Hong Kong are adjusting to the new positioning of the city.


After achieving double-digit growth rates for more than 3 decades, China is trying to shift from being an export-led economy to one that is innovation and consumption-driven. While there are many existing and exciting new business opportunities, international investors are cautiously studying China's economic outlook.


Furthermore, international companies are grappling with the new reality of doing business in China in a very different and tense geopolitical environment. Perceived heightened risks, rising debt levels, shifting regulatory landscape, a demographic change and headwinds in the property sector, etc. are all considerations for the international executive. Despite the many challenges, China is still a formidable economy.


What are the prospects of change and continuity in China, and the associated business challenges and opportunities for international businesses? At a time of a rocky US-China relationship, how should business executives engage with their company headquarters? What about the innovative new economy in China? Does that provide new opportunities for companies?


What is Hong Kong's business role in this changing China? Given the fact that the global perception of Hong Kong is evolving, how can companies in Hong Kong maintain their competitive edge when it comes to doing business with China?


After 4 years of hiatus, AmCham is reviving its China Conference on April 8. This conference features senior government officials, China experts, and business leaders to discuss the challenges the Chinese economy faces, the transformation underway, and the opportunities in this new environment. Invited speakers include US Ambassador to China Nick Burns, China's MFA Acting Commissioner in HK Li Yongsheng, HK Financial Secretary Paul Chan. Professor Jin Keyu of the London School of Economics is confirmed to come and deliver a keynote speech. The venue will be the HUB, and seats will be limited. Registration will start soon. Sponsors will be welcomed.
