Welcome to Hong Kong House Webinar Series!

“Webinar #3: Hong Kong’s strengths as an international finance centre in a pandemic and beyond”
Hong Kong has been widely recognised as one of the leading financial centres in the world, with our world-class business infrastructure, deep talent pool and plentiful market opportunities. Like other economies around the world, Hong Kong has been affected by the pandemic. Recently, there is also some misconception about the new national security law’s implications on the city’s long-term financial stability.
Join the HKETO for a conversation with Mr Christopher Hui, Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury of the Hong Kong SAR Government. Secretary Hui will share his thoughts on the latest financial developments of Asia’s world city and how Hong Kong faces the global pandemic and its many challenges through a strategy embracing certainty amid uncertainty.
There will be a Q&A Session at the end of the webinar to address your questions on the subject.
