Hong Kong SAR remains one of the most open, international, and robust economies both in the Asia region and the world. The conference will convene experts on Hong Kong in the UK and Europe to discuss the broad issue of what Hong Kong's key challenges are in the coming decade - economic, social, political and environmental, and spell out where it is likely to stand in 2020.

The conference is organized by the Asia Programme at Chatham House and the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office.
