(Sold out) 8:00am-9:15am. For many years Hong Kong has played a significant role in low-cost sourcing, particularly with goods being bought from China. The contribution to the Hong Kong economy both in employment and the flow of goods through its companies and ports is very significant. With rising costs in China and the broader spread of countries being sourced from in the region, sourcing offices in Hong Kong, and companies around the world, are faced with new challenges. In this panel, our experts will discuss their experiences and observations of the evolving role Hong Kong is playing for their businesses.
The panel will review the key aspects that have made the region competitive and attractive as a sourcing hub for businesses and the changes to the landscape. Similarly the new skills and resources that will be needed to succeed in the future will be debated. This thought-provoking session will help identify the challenges for Hong Kong based sourcing operations and how they can adapt to remain relevant and competitive. Business attire is required by the Hong Kong Club, no jeans or sport shoes.
