The "Why Invest in Hong Kong - A Look to the Future" webinar was held successfully today (June 25). The event is the last session of the "Why Hong Kong" webinar series, co-organised by the Department of Justice, the Asian Academy of International Law and Invest Hong Kong, to showcase Hong Kong's strength and to illustrate Hong Kong's irreplaceable role to the international community.
The webinar was attended by prominent legal professionals and renowned business leaders who deliberated on various promising prospects of investing in Hong Kong - the indispensable nexus between China and the world. Chairman of Fung Group and 2022 Foundation, Dr Victor Fung, delivered the keynote speech on "Window of Opportunity: The Greater Bay Area - Creating Hong Kong's Long-Term Competitiveness". He remarked that with the sturdy foundation of Hong Kong as a global financial centre and an international legal hub for deal-making and dispute resolution, it is beyond doubt that yet more investors around the world shall be drawn to this vibrant city.
The three panel discussions at the webinar addressed the pivotal topics of "Investing in and through Hong Kong", "Investment Infrastructure in Hong Kong - New Initiatives in Legal and Finance" and "Hong Kong Going Forward in the Wake of China's Future Development". The discussions provided valuable insights as to how Hong Kong could grasp the opportunities brought about by the 14th Five-year Plan and the Greater Bay Area.
The "Why Hong Kong" series comprising four webinars answered some "Why Hong Kong" questions, and further promoted the international community's understanding of Hong Kong's unique advantages, which in turn strengthens confidence in Hong Kong's long-term economic development and competitiveness.
The full event will be uploaded later to the dedicated website.
