Friday, 16 March 2018, JW Marriott Hong Kong
11:30am - 2:00pm
Government coffers have surpassed the "saving rainy day" excuse; can the government finally start spending more liberally? Will there be more handouts or fiscal prudence must come first?
On 16 March, panel members will give their views on:
- How is the new administration investing in the future of Hong Kong to enhance the city’s competitiveness?
- How to ensure sustainable economic development, talent and innovation?
- How is the budget addressing Hong Kong’s housing challenges to become a liveable city?
*CPD e-Certificate will be issued upon request.
