Hong Kong's Financial Secretary the Hon Paul Chan will meet with members at the Chamber's ongoing "Town Hall Forum Series" on 25 September.

Chan took up the role of Financial Secretary in January and has since sought to be aggressive in shaping public finances. He vowed to review the city's tax system, make good use of the reserves to benefit society and boost the competitiveness of our economy. What will be his priorities in resource allocation? How will he maintain healthy public finances and strengthen resilience to withstand economic fluctuations? What can and should be done to contribute to the success of Hong Kong?

The Financial Secretary has agreed to meet with members at our special "Town Hall Forum Series" to discuss major policy issues, as well as his views on 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 financial chief.
