Hong Kong stands at the gate of a big challenge. The record-breaking influx of business opportunities, people, and capital into Hong Kong has led to soaring property prices across all segments of the market, from residential to retail to office properties. Instead of focusing on building new capacity of offices, hospitals, universities etc, we are resisting such inflows. Against such influx of opportunities, the inability of supply factors to increase will result in structural inflation and cause political problems.
The Society is pleased to have invited Mr. Franklin Lam, Executive Council Member, founder of HKGolden50 and Former Managing Director of UBS Global Asset Management, to address the unprecedented inflow of opportunities in the immediate few years and the danger for Hong Kong if we fail to anchor these opportunities and let them slip away into the hands of our competing neighbours.
What Hong Kong chooses to do in the immediate 5 years will define the next 50. How the local community rises to these challenges in the golden years of high economic growth in the region will have great impacts on the vitality of Hong Kong economy, the employment market, and ultimately the long run economic prosperity. Join us to share his thoughts on this unprecedented development and how Hong Kong can leverage on these opportunities!
