HONG KONG – Prominent legal professionals and renowned business leaders deliberated on various promising prospects of investing in Hong Kong during a webinar in the financial hub on Friday.
The "Why Invest in Hong Kong – A Look to the Future" webinar was the last session of the "Why Hong Kong" webinar series to showcase Hong Kong's strength and to illustrate the city's irreplaceable role to the international community.
They were co-organized by Hong Kong’s Department of Justice, the Asian Academy of International Law and Invest Hong Kong.
"With the sturdy foundation of Hong Kong as a global financial center and an international legal hub for deal-making and dispute resolution, it is beyond doubt that yet more investors around the world shall be drawn to this vibrant city," said Victor Fung, chairman of Fung Group and 2022 Foundation, while delivering a keynote speech.
