Within the context of sluggish growth of the global economy and the debate on anti-globalization, China launched the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013. China — together with other countries along the ancient land and maritime silk road — will together promote trade, increase investment, deepen the integration of the global financial market, strengthen policy communication, improve institutional capacity and create a favorable environment for professionals. The Belt and Road Initiative will play an important role in promoting global economic growth, international trade and financial cooperation, and globalization.
Located in the source area of the Belt and Road Initiative, Hong Kong is ideally placed to benefit. As an important regional financial market, with rich experience in international cooperation and human resources. Hong Kong’s comprehensive participation in the Belt and Road Initiative will not only accelerate the initiative’s development but also reshape the city’s economic and financial status.
Zhu Min, president of the National Institute of Financial Research at Tsinghua University and former deputy managing director of the International Monetary Fund will discuss both the opportunities and challenges of the Belt and Road Initiative for Hong Kong.
