How Does Hong Kong's Economy Look Under John Lee?


Dr. Tommy Wu,  Lead Economist, Oxford Economics


How Does Hong Kong's Economy Look Under John Lee?
On 1st July, John Lee will succeed Carrie Lam as Hong Kong's new Chief Executive. In his election manifesto, the former secretary for security made clear his ambition to rid Hong Kong of its economic and social problems. But will he be able to breathe new life into Hong Kong's economy and revive its reputation as Asia's World City? 

During this webinar, Oxford Economics' Lead Economist Tommy Wu will share his views on the short and long-term economic challenges that John Lee's administration will be facing. These include near-term themes such as the COVID recovery, growth slowdown on the mainland and US Fed Hikes, as well as longer-term themes such as GBA integration, US-China decoupling, and more.
