The panelists shared their views on the short- and long-term investment outlook in Asia, Hong Kong as a gateway for international investors with different risk appetites and how regional developments such as the Belt and Road Initiative and the Greater Bay Area can shape the unique role of Hong Kong in future, in addition to reiterating Hong Kong’s status as a global financial centre.
