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 in the face of rising unemployment. While experts predict positive economic growth to be likely in the coming year, any hopeful forecast relies on the success of myriad factors including new government measures designed to speed up the market recovery process, an efficient vaccination rollout, and deft management of various geopolitical factors, as a new electoral system is put into practice. Meanwhile, China’s recent showcase of its 14th five-year has provided a more comprehensive look as to how the Greater Bay Area initiative can provide economic opportunities to Hong Kong in the coming years.
The South China Morning Post’s China Conference: Hong Kong returns once again this year as a virtual conference, bringing together business leaders, government officials and researchers from Hong Kong, China and the international community to 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 how the city’s key industries can explore new avenues of growth with the hindsight of a global pandemic, and how Hong Kong’s workforce is set to evolve in the coming years. 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.
