The Christmas Lunch this year will give members the chance of hearing Mark Field, the Minister responsible for the UK’s relations with Hong Kong, China and the region. He visited Hong Kong in August 2017, soon after assuming his Ministerial post.

Mark Field was at Oxford and was first elected as the Conservative MP for the Cities of London and Westminster in 2001. He served on the Intelligence and Security Committee from 2010 to 2015 and was made a Privy Counsellor in March 2015.

Throughout the 2015 to 2017 Parliament he served as the Vice Chairman (International Affairs) of the Conservative Party, a role which included extensive diplomatic contact and work alongside senior figures in sister parties across the world.

As such he led parliamentary delegations to China, Japan, India, Bangladesh and the United States and also visited many Middle Eastern states and European countries.

Between 2003 and 2006 he was an Opposition Whip, Shadow Minister for London, Shadow Financial Secretary to the Treasury and Shadow Culture Minister.

Mr Field trained as a solicitor. He set up Kellyfield Consulting in November 1994 but he divested himself of these interests on becoming an MP.

This early evening seminar is designed to be a curtain-raiser to what may well be a significant year,  following the Party Congress in Beijing,  with Carrie Lam, Hong Kong Chief Executive, having set out an ambitious agenda in her first Policy Address,  and with the Brexit negotiations adding an element of uncertainty.

The Hong Kong Association, the China-Britain Business Council, the British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and InvestHK will together provide authoritative assessment on the current business climate in Hong Kong and how it sits with mainland China and the wider region.  The talk and subsequent discussion is intended to inform, at senior level, companies and individuals who are currently involved commercially in Hong Kong, those considering investing there and those who would gain from assessment of Hong Kong’s rapidly evolving role in respect of trade and investment with mainland China.

The seminar will start with a brief talk, on the HK Government’s measures aimed at ensuring an open and conducive environment for business, by Priscilla To, Director-General of the HKETO. This will be followed by Andrew Seaton, the Director of the British Chamber in Hong Kong, who will give an overview of the current business scene and opportunities. Subsequent discussion and answers to questions will be provided by senior representatives from organisations deeply involved in many of the key questions.

The evening is being very generously hosted by Standard Chartered at their Global Headquarters at 1 Basinghall Avenue. The seminar will start at 6.30pm and drinks will be served from 7.45 pm to 8.30 pm.
