With Hong Kong's Covid vaccination programme now well underway, many people are getting their shots. Everyone has their own personal reasons for doing so. Some want to protect their family, some want to do their small part to get things back to normal, and some just want to be able to travel again. We asked some of our members why they have had their shots. This is what they said.
Peter Wong, Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive of The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, has been re-elected Chairman of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce for the coming year. Wong said he was honoured to have been re-elected, and thanked members for their continued support and trust.
Some of the biggest and most innovative names in business attended the kickoff session for the establishment of a Corporate Innovation Index by CUHK Business School today. The Chamber is a strategic partner of the Index, which we hope will help businesses better understand how to foster innovation within their companies. More details can be found here.
On Tuesday, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress approved amending the annexes to the Basic Law to improve the electoral system of Hong Kong.
