While advanced economies put more emphasis on national security consideration in formulating trade policy, Hong Kong follows a free trade policy without any non-tariff barriers. Moreover, Hong Kong sits at the hub of many significant economies: The Greater Bay Area, Belt and Road and the Indo-Pacific.
What do these economies have in common? As reopening is in full swing, how can Hong Kong capture the fresh opportunities presented in these regional economies? What is the competitive edge of Hong Kong and what role does the city play? What role can Hong Kong play in supporting the growth of green Belt and Road Initiative infrastructure projects?
This panel invites experts to dissect these economic regions and explore the business prospect for Hong Kong.
The panel discussion will be followed by a networking session; special thanks to Azure Risk for sponsoring food & beverages.
Located on Duddell Street in the heart of Central, the Community Hub is the first-of-its-kind meeting point for members and guests to network, build connection, and brainstorm new ideas in a collaborative environment.
