About this event

CityU CSHK PASS Workshop 6

Cultural Diversity and Risk Management: Hong Kong Professional Services, Overseas Investment and Special Economic Zone Development in Myanmar

多元文化與投資風險管理:香港專業服務、緬甸的外商投資及經濟特區發展

What are the opportunities and risks of investing or expanding business operation in Myanmar? What are the benefits and concerns for developing Special Economic Zone related businesses there? What unique roles could Hong Kong professional services play to facilitate mutual advancement?

This Workshop aims to present a portrait of business opportunities and challenges in Myanmar from three perspectives: 1) the local, 2) the Belt and Road and 3) Hong Kong. Through triangulation of first-hand information, insights and successful experience shared by seasoned entrepreneurs, professional practitioners, Special Economic Zone management and local researchers, participants would be able to distil an in-depth understanding of cultural diversity and risk management of overseas investments, as well as Special Economic Zone development in Myanmar. In particular, this Workshop will unpack the challenges and scrutinize the pathways whereby Hong Kong professional services and businesses may perform their distinctive roles in mitigating risks and thus take part for mutual gains and sustainable development in Myanmar.

Students of all disciplines and aspiring future professionals are all welcome!
