Invitation: Do Business with Hong Kong – the Asian Hub for Innovation and Creativity

March 21, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

This event will highlight how Hong Kong and its next door neighbour Shenzhen are developing into a key destination for start-ups. Shenzhen, which in the span of a few decades has grown from a “fishing village” to a hyper modern city twice the size of Hong Kong, is home to some of China’s most impressive tech companies, including Tencent and Huawei.

The former Crown Colony of Hong Kong, as a global finance center and with its established service industry is playing a key role in the emergence of Asia-based “unicorns”.

At the same time, the so called Greater Bay Area (an emerging megacity of approximately 60 million people spanning spanning Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and seven other cities in the Pearl River Delta), is putting the South China coast on the map as one of the most exciting urban conglomerations anywhere in the World, with huge business opportunities.
