As a precaution to prevent the risk of spreading the coronavirus, we will postpone our Town Hall Forum Series talk with Eddie Yue, Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority. A new date in due course.
A core function of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) is to maintain our city's monetary and financial stability. Indeed, our financial system has stood up remarkably well in the face of global financial crises over the years.
Can HKMA safeguard this stability amid unprecedented recent challenges, including global trade tensions as well as social events in Hong Kong? How could Hong Kong continue to serve as a financial hub and gateway to Mainland China? Moreover, with fintech and virtual banks now becoming more mainstream, how will these developments affect Hong Kong's banking industry?
HKMA's Chief Executive Eddie Yue, who has served HKMA since its establishment in 1993, took up his current position last October. He is well known and respected in the financial arena, so we are eager to hear how he sees Hong Kong's prospects as an international financial centre.
Join our Town Hall Forum Series on 18 March for an exclusive closed-door exchange with HKMA's Chief Executive.
