About the event

HONG KONG DEVELOPMENT & TRANSFORMATION SERIES

The world’s economic and social situation is ever-changing. As one of Asia’s international financial, commercial, and professional service centers, how should Hong Kong adjust, despite its advantages and good circumstances in the past decades, to face challenges of industrial transformation, competition of Asian cities, the epidemic, changes in human talents, technology development, etc.?

We sincerely invite friends from all walks of life to come and engage in dialogue, and explore various possibilities for Hong Kong’s development and transformation together!

“HONG KONG DNA AND HONG KONG BRANDING: ASPECTS OF COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE AND INNOVATION DEVELOPMENT”

Hong Kong has always been a free trade city and flexible, fast business dealing. Hong Kong people and foreigners who come to Hong Kong to work and do business all like to innovate and try new ideas here. People enjoy the environment of quick implementation and courageous experimentation. Over the years, the DNA accumulated and integrated by people from all walks of life in Hong Kong has formed the special branding of “Hong Kong”.

The convergence of ancient and modern culture, as well as Chinese and Western cultures, allows friends from all sectors and backgrounds living in Hong Kong to enjoy working, starting a business, and living here, while experiencing the efficient life of the city and the quiet landscape of the nearby countryside, at the same time also appreciating the latest modern international lifestyle and the century-old Lingnan cultural tradition.

Globalization has caused the current situation to move at a high speed, and the interaction between political, economic, and social conditions has caused social development and people’s lives to be affected by a large number of factors, Hong Kong’s development is inevitably under pressure. Facing various challenges such as industrial transformation, the emergence of more big Asian cities, the epidemic, changes in human talents, technological development, and changes in Hong Kong’s internal and external situations, can Hong Kong maintain its competitive advantages and uniqueness? Can Hong Kong discover her brightness and special positioning in the world in the face of the potential reverse transformation of globalization? Maintaining Hong Kong’s DNA and Hong Kong branding and finding an acceleration engine for innovation and creativity are the directions that we are all working hard to think about.

As a scholar and former senior government official who cares about Hong Kong’s development, Professor Anthony Bing-Leung Cheung has written a series of articles in recent years, talking about both macro and micro aspects, Hong Kong’s competitive advantages and disadvantages, as well as the structure of Hong Kong development and various psychological aspects of the people. Through this sharing and engagement, we hope that all participants can have deep communication, can be empowered by gathering knowledge, ideas, and opinions, and together can act as think-tank and do-tank to create a development roadmap and better future for Hong Kong

香港優勢發展與轉型系列

世界經濟和社會處境千變萬化,香港作為亞洲國際金融、商業和專業服務中心之一,在過往幾十年的優勢和好境下應如何調節,以面對產業轉型、亞洲各城市堀起、疫情、人才資源變化、科技發展等各樣挑戰?

我們誠邀各界朋友來拋磚引玉,讓各界朋友對話,尋找香港發展與轉型的各種可能性!

「香港DNA和香港品牌:競爭優勢和發展創新的各個面向」

香港一向作為自由貿易和做生意靈活快捷之都,讓香港人和來港打工做生意的外地人都喜歡在香港創新嘗新意念,並快速實踐和勇敢試驗。香港各路人士的累積和整合而成的DNA,多年來也構成了香港的特別品牌。

古今文化和中西文化匯聚,令在港生活的各行各業朋友都享受在此工作、創業,同時體驗城市效率生活和近距離效區幽靜景觀,也同時體味現代國際最新生活方式和百年嶺南文化傳統。

全球化令時局高速運轉,政經社會條件互動,令社會發展和人的生活受大量因素影響,香港的發展亦難免受壓。面對產業轉型、亞洲各城市堀起、疫情、人才資源變化、科技發展、香港內部外部形勢變化等各樣挑戰,究竟香港能否維持競爭優勢,保持特殊性,在全球化反向轉型的情況找出香港在世界的亮點位置?維持香港DNA和香港品牌,尋找創新和創意的加速引擎,是大家努力思考的方向。

張炳良教授作為關心香港發展的學者和前政府高官,近年寫了多篇文章,既談宏觀也談微觀,談香港的優勢進退,也談香港發展的結構和各個精神面貌。希望藉是次分享對話讓大家交流,凝聚想法和意見,由think-tank到 do-tank,為香港創未來~
