Webinar // Change and Continuity
With Mr. Christopher Hui, Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury of the Hong Kong SAR Government
2020 has been a year of change for the world and Hong Kong is no exception. While the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) Government is combating at full steam the pandemic and gradually re-opening the economy, the state and outlook of Asia’s top financial centre is full of challenges. There is also concern about the new national security law’s implications on the city’s long-term financial stability.

Secretary Hui will be joined in conversation with Mr. Arthur Chan, National Chair of the HKCBA.
After his presentation, the Secretary will answer questions from the audience. Registered participants can submit questions for the Secretary during registration or within the streaming page.
