Description

Keynote Speaker: Teresa Cheng, GBS, SC, JP, Secretary for Justice for Hong Kong

Chairman: Douglas Flint, Chairman, Hong Kong Association

Panel:

Huw Jenkins, Consultant, Clifford Chance LLP

Ingrid Edmund, Senior Product Specialist, Infrastructure Dept, HSBC Holdings plc

Ms Teresa Cheng, Secretary for Justice for Hong Kong will speak to members on the subject of Hong Kong and its position as the ideal place for deal making - set as it is within China’s Greater Bay Area Initiative. After Ms. Cheng’s keynote speech, our expert panel will discuss this initiative in more detail and the opportunities for Hong Kong and the UK.

The ambitious plans being drawn up for the Greater Bay Area Initiative will bring exciting opportunities across the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau region. The aim is to build a world class city cluster of the 11 cities in the area, which already have a combined GDP of some US$ 1.4 trillion. By 2030 the region will play a leading role in innovation, infrastructure, advanced manufacturing, finance, shipping and trade and will play a key role in China’s Belt and Road Initiative. Hong Kong is perfectly situated as the ideal hub for deal making throughout the region.

Ms. Cheng was a Senior Counsel in private practice before joining the Government. She is also a chartered engineer, chartered arbitrator and accredited mediator. She has therefore had much experience in complex international commercial and investment cases.

The evening is co-organised with the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, London and being very generously hosted by Clifford Chance at their headquarters at 10 Upper Bank Street in Canary Wharf. The seminar will be followed by a reception from 7.30 pm to 8.30 pm.

Space will be limited and seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
