12:00–1:45pm. (Sold out) In this panel discussion, Professor Xufei Ma and Professor Yinggang Zhou of CUHK Business School, who have researched different aspects of Qianhai's potential, as well as Dr. Witman Hung, Principal Liaison Officer for Hong Kong of Qianhai Authority, will be discussing the following issues and exchanging views with participants. Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone officially became part of the 'Twelfth Five-Year Plan" four years ago. It has two goals: one is to develop the cooperation between Shenzhen and Hong Kong in all areas of modern services, and the other is to be a testing ground for opening China's financial system.
Given these two goals, what is the unique positioning of Qianhai? So far, the zone seems to have attracted more domestic companies than Hong Kong companies to set up subsidiaries. It also is not being used to its full capacity. Why is that so? What can be done to attract more Hong Kong companies to the zone? Why is it strategically crucial for Hong Kong to seize the opportunity to expand its financial services across the border by leveraging what Qianhai can offer? In addition, how can Hong Kong and international businesses benefit from the new policies tailor-made for the zone over the past two years?
