A pioneering entrepreneur from Hong Kong investing in Mainland China since 1980s, Sir Gordon Wu, KCMG and FICE, Chairman of Hopewell Holdings, is most known for his success in building many milestone infrastructure projects in Guangdong, such as the China Hotel in Guangzhou, Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Zhuhai Superhighway System, Shajiao B and C Power Plants, Humen Bridge, among others.
Success didn't come easy in the early stage of China's open door and reform. Sir Gordon introduced the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) concept in developing major projects and critical infrastructures that contributed immensely to the economic takeoff of the Pearl River Delta (PRD), along with the persistence in helping China to optimize "the rules" were the two keys for his success.
What could we relearn from PRD developments over the past decades? How can we propel the changes and pave the way for future success in China's market? At the event, Sir Gordon will share his hands-on investment experience in the PRD, the current status and the future of the Greater Bay Area development.
The session is co-hosted by the Infrastructure and Construction Committee and China Business Committee.
