Future Scenarios for Hong Kong: Consequences of the Security Law for European Politics and Businesses
Hong Kong has fundamentally changed. Almost everything in daily life, including the business environment, is now politicized, converging towards the conditions on the mainland. Businesses need to adjust to increasing legal and political uncertainty. The choice is to either publicly kowtow or to bring operations and assets to safe alternative locations. With the decoupling of Chinese and Western economic spheres already under way at the global level, geo-political rifts will especially be felt in Hong Kong – regardless of the outcome of the US elections.
Please join us for our strategic webinar to discuss consequences of the security law in Hong Kong for European politics and businesses.
Please register here for the event.

The event will be hosted on Cisco Webex; additional registration is necessary!
