Event Description:
“Hong Kong 3.0” represents a shift for Hong Kong’s future as a global sustainable city. It builds on the transformation from its trading roots (HK 0.0) to manufacturing (HK 1.0) to services (HK 2.0). Professor Sivan believes Hong Kong needs this transformation to maintain its unique edge. Complacency is detrimental when competing with the likes of Shenzhen, South Korea, Singapore, Shanghai, and other economic centres in Asia. A specific focus must be found – and Professor Sivan believes innovation is a key direction for the future Hong Kong 3.0.

HCHK Director Philo Alto will be day chair for this event. Special thanks to Noah Holdings for their venue support.
