Hong Kong's Strategic Role Under the 'Belt and Road' Initiative

23 May 2016 - 07:45 to 09:00

Chatham House London, UK


Gregory So, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Hong Kong Government

Chair: Roderic Wye, Associate Fellow, Asia Programme, Chatham House



Launched in 2013, China’s 'Belt and Road' initiative aims to promote economic, political and cultural cooperation and development from Asia through Africa and into Europe through land and maritime routes.

Gregory So will argue that Hong Kong’s strategic location allows it to serve as a ‘super-connector’, linking economies under the 'Belt and Road' initiative. He will discuss Hong Kong’s participation in China's ‘two-way opening up’ and set out how overseas markets, including the UK, can use the Hong Kong platform to capitalize on the opportunities offered by the 'Belt and Road' initiative.

Attendance is strictly by invitation only. To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
This event is only open to Major Corporate Member and Partner organizations of Chatham House. To register for this event, please RSVP to Linda Bedford.
