Hong Kong sits at the hub of many significant economies: The Greater Bay Area, Belt and Road and the Indo-Pacific. This session examines business opportunities beyond Hong Kong.
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.
