What's On

Registration Closed

The 2018 Annual Sessions of the National People's Congress and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (Two Sessions) are scheduled to open on 3 and 5 March respectively in Beijing.

In his New Year address, President Xi Jinping promised to win the battle against poverty, clean up the environment, tackle corruption and improve government efficiency. These plans build on some of the themes of Xi's "Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era" that he introduced at the 19th CPC National Congress in October.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland in January, Xi said that China would substantially open up the services and financial sectors and create a more attractive investment environment. This has boosted expectations that 2018 will see broader use of the renminbi in global trade, investment and foreign reserves, as well as a more flexible floating exchange rate.

It is expected that these will be among the major topics of discussion during the Two Sessions.

To discuss these and other issues, we have invited Chamber General Committee members, Mr Anthony Wu, member of the Standing Committee of the CPPCC National Committee; Mr Jeffrey Lam, member of the CPPCC National Committee and Chamber LegCo Representative; and Mr Stanley Hui, member of the CPPCC National Committee, to speak at a roundtable on 19 March. They will share with us first-hand information from their attendance at the Two Sessions as well as their insights into the latest developments raised at the meetings.

Remarks: Please note that the event will be conducted in English. NO interpretation services will be provided.
