Five years after being launched, China's Belt and Road Initiative is gaining momentum. Projects continue to be announced across South Asia, Central Asia, Africa and beyond. There are huge opportunities for Hong Kong businesses in transportation, logistics, maritime, finance, telecommunications, real estate, information technology and legal services.
Investors, including SMEs, must be aware of the opportunities available and also the risks involved.
This event is co-organized by the Chamber's new Belt and Road Group and the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre. It is the first of a series of sector-specific events planned by the Working Group.
Behzad Mirzaei, Partner of Basio Consultants & Services, will share his expertise in and outside the Middle East to highlight issues of which companies need to be aware when doing businesses in Belt & Road countries.
John Yeap, Partner at Pinsent Masons, and Maria Tan Pedersen, Partner at Jones Day, will discuss the typical risks associated with Belt and Road projects world-wide and how to mitigate them.
Sarah Grimmer, Secretary-General of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, will consider how disputes during Belt and Road projects can best be resolved, with a particular focus on ASEAN.
The speakers will also discuss how Hong Kong's SME's can best position themselves to take advantage of the Belt and Road initiative.
