Do we still need hong kong?

The Chinese government is relaxing ownership limits in commercial banking, securities, futures, asset management and insurance. What opportunities does this present for Switzerland’s flagship banking and insurance institutions? Is China’s traditional banking sector sufficiently developed? What does this move mean for Hong Kong? This event offers unique insights directly from one of Hong Kong’s most recognised figures in banking and insurance, Bernard Charnwut Chan. Chan is also a high-ranking official in the Hong Kong Administration, appointed by Carrie Lam in 2017.
