Hong Kong's Road to Economic Recovery

Mr. Wilson Chong, Senior Economist of Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce

In recent years, the Hong Kong economy has been hit by a series of unfortunate events, which culminated with the coronavirus pandemic resulting in its sharpest contraction on record. However, there appears to be some relief with the roll-out of vaccination programmes across the world.

What shape would the economy rebound take after the pandemic has been brought under control? What are the impacts of Covid on the Hong Kong economy and will these be long-lasting?

Wilson Chong will share with us his insights into the economic development of Hong Kong in the year ahead. He will also discuss how the acceleration in digital transformation help raise productivity in the city.

4:00pm  

Talent Attraction and Retention - The Why of What?

Mr. Teddy Liu, Member of People Development Management Committee at The Hong Kong Management Association

Without understanding what we need, we are fighting for nothing. Just understanding what we need but without understanding the why of what we need, we may miss the target.  Talents are always in high demand, no matter in high or low economic tides, for talents are the fuel to drive business sustainability and growth.  How can we attract and retain talents?  Perhaps the answers lie in who they are and what they want on top of who we are and what we can offer.  By understanding the why of what, we hope to steer our human strategies in the right direction that can help business to thrive and strive for the best.

4:30pm

 

Building Digital Communities to Complement Trade Exhibitions

Ms. Wendy Lai, Vice President of Global Sources Exhibitions

Keeping communities engaged year-round is a challenge for many exhibition organisers. By adopting digital strategy, exhibition organisers not only can build year-round engagement with their customers, but also extend the audience reach and amplify their events’ influence. Global Sources has been a pioneer in this area and in this session, Wendy Lai will share some of the company's experiences with its digital strategy over the years.

5:00pm

 

Panel Discussion on Tourism Recovery

Moderated By Mr Stuart Bailey, Chairman of Hong Kong Exhibition & Convention Industry Association

Panellists:
Mr Jason Wong, JP, Chairman of Travel Industry Council of Hong Kong
Dr Jennifer Cronin, President of Wharf Hotels
Mrs Vivian Cheung, Executive Director, Airport Operations at Airport Authority Hong Kong

The MICE industry in Hong Kong has been adversely affected by the pandemic since last year and the recovery of the sector depends largely on the relaxation of travel restrictions the opening of borders and the systems in place to ensure safe and comfortable journeys. In this panel discussion, the panellists who are members of the HKTB’s Tourism Recovery Industry Task Force will discuss the plans for tourism recovery in Hong Kong.
