What's On

The United States and China are respectively the largest and the second largest economies in the world, and their bilateral relation no doubt has significant impacts on the global economy. Therefore, there are serious concerns regarding the existing frictions between the two countries.

The China-U.S. trade war is a reflection of the rise of populism, nationalism and protectionism globally. Thus far, the trade war does not seem to have noticeable damage to the Chinese and Hong Kong economy. What will happen if the trade war continues and escalates in 2019? Is the Chinese economy sufficiently flexible and resilient to weather the negative impacts?

To learn more about the impacts and symbolic meaning of the trade war, and why Mainland China and the U.S. should strengthen their economic interdependence for mutual benefits, the Chamber has invited Professor Lawrence Lau, the Ralph and Claire Landau Professor of Economics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Kwoh-Ting Li Professor in Economic Development, Emeritus, of Stanford University, to share his insight at a roundtable luncheon.

A brief book-signing session for Professor Lau's new book "The China-U.S. Trade War and Future Economic Relations" will be held after the roundtable luncheon. You could purchase the book in advance for his signature.

Speaker(s) Prof Lawrence Lau, Ralph and Claire Landau Professor of Economics, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
