Welcome to join us for a webinar on how to do business, invest, cooperate or innovate in Hong Kong!
Hong Kong, with its 7.5 million inhabitants in Southeast Asia, is one of the megacities in the world. In addition to being a global financial hub and logistics center thanks to its high-ranking universities and science parks, it is also a center for research, innovation, and development within areas like robotics, life sciences, design, fintech, and other high-tech areas.
In recent years, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area Development (Greater Bay Area) also presented new opportunities for Hong Kong. The Greater Bay Area comprises the two Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao now connected by a newly built bridge, and the nine municipalities of Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Huizhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen, and Zhaoqing in Guangdong Province. At end of 2019, the total population of the Greater Bay Area is over 72 million, where the GDP is USD 1,679.5 billion and GDP per capita is USD 23,371.
Nine distinguished guests will be joining this webinar to give you in-depth and brand new information about Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area with a strong focus on opportunities for Scandinavia. You will meet representatives from Swedish companies in Hong Kong and from key organizations and agencies in Hong Kong. Ample time will also be reserved for questions and answers.
