|An Evening with AmCham President Dr. Eden Woon|
On Tuesday evening, Future Leaders had an intimate discussion with AmCham President, Dr. Eden Woon, who shared with us his career journeys over the years, spanning different paths in academia, business, diplomacy, etc. This session was followed by a very lively Q&A.
Hong Kong sits at the hub of many significant economies: The Greater Bay Area, Belt and Road and the Indo-Pacific . As reopening is in full swing, how can Hong Kong capture the fresh opportunities presented in these economies? What is the competitive edge of Hong Kong and what role does the city play?
This panel invites experts to dissect these economic regions and explore the business prospect for Hong Kong.
The Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury, Mr Christopher Hui, attended meetings on "Strengthening GBA Sustainable Finance Collaboration" and "Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Green Finance Cooperation" to exchange views with financial regulators and industry representatives in the Greater Bay Area on enhancing GBA co-operation in green and sustainable finance.
