Current Threat Assessment- Implications for Foreign Business

Current Threat Assessment- Implications for Foreign Business

Hong Kong – Current Threat Assessment - Implications for Foreign Business

This event has been postponed to Tuesday 9 June.



Steve Vickers, Chief Executive Officer, Steve Vickers and Associates Limited 


The recent arrests of pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong have underlined how tensions are still boiling away, notwithstanding the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.  Businesses should prepare for further civil unrest, as the threat from the virus recedes, and as frictions rise.  Events in Hong Kong may also impact US and UK China relations at this difficult time.

In this presentation Steve will give a frank, impartial and unvarnished assessment of what is really going on and the possible outcomes.

Steve will give practical advice to MNCs and other businesses based in Hong Kong as to appropriate measures to mitigate their risk and plan for business recovery.
