The 2021 annual meetings of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and the National People's Congress, widely known as the Two Sessions, are scheduled to commence on 4 and 5 March in Beijing.
Important policies such as the 14th Five-Year Plan, "dual-circulation strategies" and the Hong Kong National Security Law were announced during last year's meetings and have been implemented for some time already.
As China is the only country among major economies that recorded a positive growth in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic, many enterprises around the world are relying on the Chinese market to sustain their business. As such, key policy directions revealed at the Two Sessions will provide guidance to help businesses formulate business strategies moving forward.
To learn about China's latest plans and policies, we have invited a panel of Two Sessions attendees to speak at a 29 March webinar. They are Anthony Wu, Former HKGCC Chairman, Member of the Standing Committee of the CPPCC National Committee; Jeffrey Lam, Chamber LegCo Representative, Member of the CPPCC National Committee and Vice Chairman of the Committee for Liaison with Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and Overseas Chinese; David Lie, Member of the Chamber's General Committee, Member of the CPPCC National Committee; Stanley Hui, Member of the Chamber's General Committee, Member of the CPPCC National Committee; and Nick Chan, Vice Chairman of the Chamber's Legal Committee, Hong Kong Deputy to National People's Congress.
They will share with us first-hand information from their attendance at these key meetings, as well as their insights on the upcoming development strategies for the country.
