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
