What's On

After more than two years of strict Covid-19 restrictions, Hong Kong has finally ended the mandatory quarantine for overseas arrivals with the new "0+3" scheme. But now comes the challenging part: what can be done to get the city back to pre-Covid levels of normalcy, and to attract foreign investment and talent?

The Hon John KC LEE, the sixth-term Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, has pledged to start a new chapter for Hong Kong, with full development opportunities in five years. What will be the Government's main policy priorities, and how can we contribute to these goals? How can the city integrate into the overall development of Mainland China and grasp the opportunities presented by the Greater Bay Area initiative?

The Chief Executive has agreed to meet with members at our special "Town Hall Forum Series" on 9 December to discuss major policy issues and Hong Kong's future prospects. Places are limited, so book early to secure your seat to hear and share your thoughts with Hong Kong's new Chief Executive.
