Hong Kong and China saw the economy contract at a sharp rate during the first quarter of 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic swept through. Despite signs of gradual recovery, widespread uncertainties continue to cloud the outlook for the economy. The Chamber welcomes Kelvin Lau and Neal Beatty who will share their insights on both the Macro and Micro economic outlook for China and Hong Kong.

During this event, Kelvin will provide and update on the macroeconomic outlook, both in the context of post-COVID recovery and renewed escalation of US-China confrontation. Neal will then discuss the current global situation and microeconomic outlook; the impact COVID-19 has had on key sectors in China and issues emerging in the recovery; the challenges to the coordination between Chinese subsidiaries and their global headquarters and other regional branches; and also how to manage risk and opportunity in a post COVID-19 China.
