In light of the fierce competition in the global arena, Hong Kong strives to uphold its prevailing competitive edges and has reclaimed the title of the world’s most competitive economy, according to IMD World Competitiveness Ranking 2016.
However, given the volatile global economy, U.S. interest movement, the uncertainty associated with Brexit, a relatively strong Hong Kong Dollar as well as the currency devaluation in popular tourist destinations such as Japan and Korea, together with the tightening of the Individual Visiting Scheme in Mainland China, all resulted in a decline in tourist sentiment on travelling to Hong Kong.
Furthermore, consumer sentiment remained weak under the slowing economic growth in Mainland China. Being bombarded by these changes and challenges, Hong Kong’s economy has been adversely affected and its ability to adapt and innovate is constantly tested.
To keep abreast with the changing times, The Hong Kong Management Association 2016 Annual Conference brings together a prestigious line-up of speakers to provide a forum for senior executives to explore effective strategies towards these challenges, thereby uplifting Hong Kong’s competitive advantage and strengthening its leading position as an international financial, trading and business centre. Through this engagement, we hope participants will be inspired with new ideas and directions to acquire growth and sustainability of their organisations.
