    Event Highlight
    Thematic session on
    China opportunities: The trends of RMB Internationalisation and the Belt and Road Strategy

    In its 13th Five Year Plan, the Chinese government reaffirmed its
    determination to move towards greater renminbi (RMB) capital account
    convertibility and pledge to pursuing the Belt and Road Initiative. Driven by
    the growing importance of the China market, Hong Kong will not only serve
    as the largest centre for offshore RMB business, but would further reinforce
    its role as a springboard for Chinese companies expanding overseas, and for
    overseas corporations to enter the Mainland market. The most recent
    establishment of the Infrastructure Financing Facilitation Office in Hong
    Kong will also provide a useful springboard for corporations to conduct
    infrastructure investment and financing along the Belt and Road region.

    Hong Kong as the leading international financial centre offers a major
    investment and financing platform and a deep capital market with a plethora
    of services to facilitate these new developments. A panel of experts from the
    financial sectors will give us an update on the latest China opportunities and
    discuss how German corporates and financial institutions can make use of
    Hong Kong to access the growing opportunities on the Mainland and explore
    investments and financing of infrastructure projects along the Belt and Road
    region.

    Panel on Infrastructure Financing
    China Opportunities: Sharpening Hong Kong’s unique edge in the Belt and Road Strategy

    The continued opening up of the Chinese economy, steadfast progress of RMB internationalisation, and the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative will continue to drive the economic development of China and its neighbouring economies. As an international financial centre and the leading global offshore RMB hub, Hong Kong would further reinforce its role as a springboard for Chinese companies expanding overseas, and for overseas corporations to enter the Mainland market. What are the advantages of Hong Kong with the accelerating implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative under the 13th Five Year Plan? The panel reviewed the latest development of RMB business in Hong Kong, and explored how the implementation of concessionary tax measures would help develop Hong Kong into a corporate treasury centre. In addition, the panel further reviewed how the recent establishment of the Infrastructure Financing Facilitation Office would accelerate Hong Kong's development into a major infrastructure financing centre.

    • Eddie Yue, Deputy Chief Executive, Hong Kong Monetary Authority; Director, Infrastructure Financing Facilitation Office
