Wednesday 13 July 2022 – ACBC Victoria hosted an executive roundtable discussion in partnership with InvestHK surrounding opportunities within the Greater Bay Area (GBA) following the GBA Symposium held earlier that year.
We would like to thank our speakers from InvestHK Yin Robards (Deputy Head – Aus & NZ) and Luca De Leonardis (Head of Investment Promotion – Aus & NZ) for providing an update on the region and providing responses to attendee questions.
We hope this session generated optimism and excitement for the Greater Bay Region (GBA) and the opportunities within. Hong Kong remains of critical importance to China’s growth and international investment flows.
During the roundtable, a senior group of business leaders met to discuss the current economic status of Hong Kong. 25 years since returning to China, the region has undergone enormous change and continues to occupy a uniquely coveted position on the global stage.
Represented around the table were business leaders from Hong Kong’s most valuable and emerging sectors. The discussion was robust and covered a broad range of areas such as financial services, fintech, creative industries, startup ecosystems, tourism, family offices, property development, proptech, science parks, blockchain, retail and more.
Emerging opportunities such as utilising Hong Kong as a gateway to ASEAN represent fresh opportunities for Australian businesses looking to expand their footprint.
We look forward to continuing the discussion around the opportunities within the GBA for ACBC members at future events.
