Event description

Description

Global economic growth accelerated in 2018 but is set to decelerate in 2019. What will 2019 be for the global economic landscape? How do the previous year’s socio-economic dynamics benefit or threaten the world? In this talk, Joanne Chu from HKETO in New York will share her view on the matter and discuss the Hong Kong government’s Budget 2019 with you. In the US, consumer spending appears on a firm footing, but business sentiment and investment plans will be key. Ryan Wang from HSBC will examine the outlook for the US economy and the potential upside and downside risks.
