This early evening seminar is designed to be a curtain-raiser to what may well be a significant year, following the Party Congress in Beijing, with Carrie Lam, Hong Kong Chief Executive, having set out an ambitious agenda in her first Policy Address, and with the Brexit negotiations adding an element of uncertainty. The Hong Kong Association, the China-Britain Business Council, the British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and InvestHK will together provide authoritative assessment on the current business climate in Hong Kong and how it sits with mainland China and the wider region.The talk and subsequent discussion is intended to inform, at senior level, companies and individuals who are currently involved commercially in Hong Kong, those considering investing there and those who would gain from assessment of Hong Kong’s rapidly evolving role in respect of trade and investment with mainland China.

The seminar will start with a brief talk, on the HK Government’s measures aimed at ensuring an open and conducive environment for business, by Priscilla To, Director-General of the HKETO.

This will be followed by Andrew Seaton, the Director of the British Chamber in Hong Kong, who will give an overview of the current business scene and opportunities. Subsequent discussion and answers to questions will be provided by senior representatives from organisations deeply involved in many of the key questions.

The evening is being very generously hosted by Standard Chartered at their Global Headquarters at 1 Basinghall Avenue.

The seminar will start at 6.30pm and drinks will be served from 7.45 pm to 8.30 pm.

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

Applications to attend will only be accepted until 20th December.
