What's On

The 13th Five-Year Plan (FYP) will come to an end this year. Although there were challenges along the way, the 13th FYP saw significant progress for the Central Government in launching the Greater Bay Area (GBA) and Belt & Road initiatives. Hong Kong is an important component of these two initiatives. However, it has recently suffered the worst economic slump on record as a result of local social unrest, international trade tensions and the global Covid-19 epidemic.

With a volatile external and internal environment, how can Hong Kong address these pressing issues and prepare for the upcoming 14th FYP? To facilitate meaningful discussion on the subject, the Chamber will host an online forum on 16 and 17 June: "China's 14th Five-Year Plan: Economic Prospects and Role of Hong Kong".

Experts from different fields will review the progress and achievements of the 13th FYP and analyse the expected general direction of the 14th FYP, including the continuing development of the GBA and Belt & Road. They will also discuss the potential development paths and opportunities for key industries in Hong Kong.
