What's On

Businesses in Hong Kong have been hard bit by social-distancing regulations and heavily restricted travel, which has resulted in a severe loss of business and customers. They are less likely to survive without additional financial support such as business loans and payment holidays.

In recent months, some anti-epidemic measures have been eased, and there is the expectation of a further loosening of restrictions in the second half of 2022.

What is the macroeconomic outlook for Hong Kong in the near future? Will the current Government support measures be enough to help business until operations return to normal? What can local businesses do to prepare for economic recovery?

Amid the continuing uncertainties about the economic situation and the pandemic, the Chamber has invited experts from Hang Seng Bank, to share their insights on the macroeconomic outlook in the coming quarters at a seminar on 7 July. They will also discuss strategies for local businesses to seize the opportunities emerging as the economy recovers, and the prospects as the world moves towards the post-pandemic era.
