The South China Morning Post’s China Conference: Hong Kong returns once again this year as a virtual conference on June 15-17, 2021

Over a year into the Covid-19 pandemic, business leaders and policymakers in Hong Kong are faced with unprecedented challenges as they seek to pull the city out of its worst recession on record. While experts predict positive economic growth to be likely in the coming year, any hopeful forecast relies on the success of myriad factors, including government measures designed to speed up market recovery, an efficient vaccination rollout, and deft management of geopolitical issues, as a new electoral system is put into practice. Meanwhile, China’s recent showcase of its 14th five-year has provided further insights as to how the Greater Bay Area initiative can provide economic opportunities to Hong Kong in the coming years.

China Conference: Hong Kong, will bring together business leaders, government officials and renowned researchers from Hong Kong, China and the international community to discuss and debate :

  • What the immediate future holds for businesses and workers in Hong Kong, while considering Hong Kong’s long-term position within the Greater China framework
  • How the city’s key industries can explore new avenues of growth with the hindsight of a global pandemic
  • Ways in which Hong Kong’s office settings and workforce requirements are set to evolve in the coming years, especially as organisation-wide digital transformation continues to grow
  • The latest trends in Hong Kong’s financial and wealth creation sectors
  • The latest tech and investments trends impacting Hong Kong’s growth
  • Thought-provoking theories on these issues and more will provide an unparalleled lens into how Hong Kong can overcome one of the toughest challenges in its history

Join us alongside domestic and international thought-leaders to debate pressing issues and construct roadmaps for partnerships in economic reform, infrastructure, investment, business opportunities, trends in technology and innovation, as well as regional cooperation. For further details, please refer to the conference Agenda and the list of speakers.
