Hong Kong's unique role as Asia's financial powerhouseHong Kong's unique role as Asia's financial powerhouse

Hong Kong’s Unique Role as Asia’s Financial Powerhouse

(10:00a.m. HKT, 23 Oct, 2020) Get your ticket!

Hong Kong’s role as a global financial centre has been called into question due to social unrest in 2019 and ongoing geopolitical tensions between the US and China. But, a close look shows there is no other place in Asia that connects the dots as much as Hong Kong does for fundraising, wealth management, insurance, banking, fintech, globalisation of the RMB and deal-making. Hong Kong remains the unique financial services connecting point between China and the world, and vice versa. Join this esteemed panel to explore how the market will develop in a more polarised world and what the threats and opportunities are for Hong Kong’s role as a global financial centre.

As one of the world’ most densely populated cities, Hong Kong has introduced strict measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 – but has so far avoided the total lockdown. It’s a constant three-way tussle between protecting public health, minimising economic fallout and managing public acceptance. What are the health lessons learned? How does it keep public transport running smoothly and safely? How does a global hospitality brand cope across cultures and continents?
