Event Details

This session will explore the opportunities and challenges related to the continued development of the Greater Bay Area. As infrastructure and business links of the economies of Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong continue to grow, how far have these separately administered territories managed to integrate? How are Hong Kong and the businesses based here faring in this integration process? What are the linkages with Shenzhen and other parts of China in terms of the start-up ecosystem, and what kinds of sectors may produce future unicorns? How are new and evolving political and economic realities affecting growth prospects? The event will feature a fireside chat with John Tsang Chun-wah, independent director of Greater Bay Area Homeland Investments and former Financial Secretary of Hong Kong SAR, and a panel of business leaders from Fung Group, The Executive Center, WeLab, and The Economist sharing their industry perspectives on GBA development.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us.
