Hong Kong's Reality
Hong Kong is one of the world’s most important business hubs, not to mention China’s key financial clearing house for 72% of all money flowing in and out of the Mainland.
With the news reports of Hong Kong’s seemingly violent and chaotic protests, the reality on the ground may be very surprising in its normality and safety. Callan Anderson has been based in Hong Kong for 20 years, and will discuss the current situation in Hong Kong, the impacts on Canadian business, as well as the continued opportunities Hong Kong offers.
