An Essential Revival

MAY 15, 2020 | JW Marriott, Hong Kong

After experiencing its first fiscal shortfall in 15 years as a result of months of social unrest and fallout from the US-China trade war, the outbreak of Covid-19 could not have come at a worse time for Hong Kong’s economy. While experts anticipate even further short-term economic contraction as a result, business leaders, foreign officials and global thought leaders have expressed wider concern that Hong Kong may lose its once prestigious status as Asia’s financial centre, making many businesses reconsider their long-term prospects in the city.

Join us at the South China Morning Post’s China Conference, to hear from 400 business leaders, government officials and researchers from Hong Kong, China and the international community discuss and debate what the immediate future holds for Hong Kong, while considering Hong Kong’s long-term position within the Greater China framework. Experts will deliberate on how the city’s hardest-hit industries might be able to recover and explore new potential avenues of growth. Thought-provoking theories on these issues and more will provide an unparalleled lens into how Hong Kong can overcome the toughest challenge it has ever faced in its history.
