This program is co-organized by HKUST Leadership and Public Policy Executive Education (LAPP) and HKUST Institute for Emerging Market Studies (IEMS)
Following the Belt and Road Summit in Beijing attended by 29 heads of state in May 2017, momentum is building for China’s major initiative to support infrastructure construction and increase connectivity with over 60 countries along the overland Silk Road Economic Belt and the Maritime Silk Road. But what is actually happening under the Initiative and what economic opportunities will be created for Hong Kong and countries along the Belt and Road? This executive program consists of a series of interconnected and interactive seminars led by leading research, government, and business leaders that will provide participants with an up-to-date picture of how the Initiative is being implemented in countries around the world, the expected impacts on trade and investment as well as internationalization of the renminbi, potential opportunities for Hong Kong businesses, and the roles that government and other stakeholders can play to take advantage of these opportunities.
The program is designed for senior executives and professionals in the government, non-profit and private sector, who are interested in better understanding what the Belt and Road Initiative entails, what its likely impacts will be, and what are the opportunities for Hong Kong businesses.
