Hong Kong ranks as one of the world's most competitive and advanced international financial hubs. On the treasury front, the SAR Government ensures that public resources are used effectively for economic and social development.

Despite the unprecedented challenges facing the economy, Hong Kong strives continually to further consolidate our status as a leading global financial centre, an asset and wealth management centre and an offshore RMB business hub. The Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau plays a crucial role in supporting the development of financial services.

How will the bureau safeguard the city's financial stability amid the recent challenges, including the coronavirus outbreak, global trade tensions and social unrest? What plans are afoot to further the development of fintech and green finance?

Join our Town Hall Forum on 31 August for an exclusive exchange with the Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury Christopher Hui Ching-yu. Due to the recent surge in coronavirus cases, this event will now be held online to comply with social distancing measures. The Secretary will address these issues and outline the opportunities ahead for Hong Kong, and discuss the work that his bureau is doing to reinforce Hong Kong's role as a global financial hub.

Speaker(s) Christopher Hui Ching-yu was appointed Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury on 22 April 2020.

Mr Hui was an Administrative Officer in the Government from 1999 to 2003 and served in the Economic Development Branch, the Office of the Government of the Hong Kong SAR in Beijing and the Home Affairs Department. He worked in the banking sector after leaving the Government in 2003, including more than 10 years at the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing. He has been the Executive Director of the Hong Kong Financial Services Development Council since 2019.

Mr Hui holds Bachelor and Master (Hon) Degrees in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford, and an MBA from INSEAD. He also attended the Stanford Executive Programme (SEP).
