Asian Financial Forum - Breakfast Panel

Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
18-19 January 2016

FSDC co-sponsored the Asian Financial Forum (AFF) organised by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and Hong Kong Trade Development Council on 18-19 January 2016.  The FSDC hosted the Breakfast Panel with the theme “Hong Kong: Your Super-connector to the Belt and Road Initiative” on Day 2 (19 January 2016).


China’s Belt and Road Initiative will strengthen economic cooperation in the vast regions of Asia, Africa and Europe.  This transformational development will open up a wealth of opportunities for a great number of countries and regions.


Hong Kong, as a “super-connector” between the Mainland and the rest of the world, can play a substantial role in the Belt-Road initiative.  More specifically, Hong Kong is well positioned to provide Mainland enterprises that are “going global” with financial and other professional services to support their international investment, Renminbi cross-border trade settlement and financing activities, as well as risk management. 


In this session, a panel of industry experts explored the opportunities arising from the Belt-Road initiative along with what Hong Kong has to offer to businesses, investors and financial institutions that aspire to fully leverage the initiative.
