HKNZBA was fortunate to have Andrew Leung speak to members and non-members about China’s ascendancy today and the implications for Hong Kong and the Asia- Pacific region in Wellington, as part of the Hong Kong Festival. Mr Leung is a prominent China specialist and his experience and knowledge in this area is truly unparalleled. He spoke about some of the salient issues that China faces today, including the widening income disparities faced by the population, corruption and environmental protection. The event was hosted at the Wellington Club and guests enjoyed a delicious three-course meal. Thank you to the Wellington Club for hosting this event.
