redefine Hong Kong
In 2001, Hong Kong dubbed itself ‘Asia’s World City’. Few would have contested the description then. Today, however, it’s not only outdated but also untrue. Though still a core business centre in the region, Hong Kong has suffered from slow-paced adoption of cutting-edge technologies, and a regulatory attitude that strangles innovation. For the city to lead again, much has to change. But where to start?
Over the past six years, SCMP’s Redefining Hong Kong Series (RHK) debated how to reposition Hong Kong for future success. In 2019, SCMP will leverage this platform but reconfigure its focus. Our ambition is simple, though far from easy: to catalyse positive change in our city and project Hong Kong back to the lofty heights where it belongs.
RHK will facilitate communication and cooperative action among senior executives to pursue like-minded objectives for improving the innovation landscape in Hong Kong. Taking place over the course of four meetings in 2019/20, attendees will hear from experts and opinion-leaders, and have their say through roundtable discussions. With your participation, RHK will unleash Hong Kong's innovative potential, and push for quicker, more meaningful progress in the city.
