About the conference


Theme

Establishing Hong Kong as the nucleus of a thriving Greater Bay Area 

 

Overview

Hong Kong is poised to become a key economic driver for the success of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA). As China’s most internationalised metropolis, Hong Kong has an irreplaceable role amongst the 11 GBA cities in building the Greater Bay Area, and strengthening the connection between China and the world. How can Hong Kong establish itself as the nucleus of the GBA? How can Hong Kong benefit from and contribute to GBA development?

 

The RICS Hong Kong Annual Conference 2018 gathers industry professionals and decision makers to analyse how Hong Kong can leverage its edge to steer GBA development. Expert-led panels will explore a possible blueprint for Hong Kong to capitalise on the vast potentials unleashed from future growth.
