What's On

Registration Closed

The Honourable Mrs Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, delivered her Policy Address to the Legislative Council on 25 November.

Every year, the Hong Kong business community hosts a luncheon for over 1 000 executives to hear the Chief Executive elaborate on the Policy Address. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, this is not possible this year. However, we are deeply honoured that Mrs Lam has accepted our invitation to speak to the Hong Kong business community via Zoom on 10 December. Attendees will be able to hear Mrs Lam explain the priorities of her latest Policy Address, and learn more about her initiatives to support the economy and people's livelihoods during this challenging time.


This free webinar is exclusively for members only. Upon successful registration, you will receive a confirmation email and link to access the webinar on event day. Participation is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis!
