What's On

While the Covid-19 pandemic has brought a halt to a lot of in-person communication, it has accelerated the adoption of technologies that enable lives and businesses to gradually return to normal, regardless of geographical restrictions. The Greater Bay Area (GBA) has been leading the way, with innovations flourishing across various sectors such as fintech, proptech, biotech and edutech, as well as evolutionary changes in the healthcare and logistics sectors.

At this seminar, experts from different fields will share the latest business application of technologies in the GBA, and opportunities for further enhancing the connection between Hong Kong and the other GBA cities. They will also share some of the challenges and opportunities of the new tech-driven future that companies are facing.
