Time: Seminar 6.30pm – 7.45pm; Reception 7.45pm – 8.15pm

This annual early evening seminar is designed to provide an authoritative and up to date picture of the current business scene in Hong Kong, with a particular focus on opportunities for UK business, both in Hong Kong itself, and in the wider region. Delivered, as they will be, by the most senior and experienced officials involved, the initial speeches will have authority and, as the session will be off the record, they will also provide in-depth perceptions of how things stand. The ensuing panel discussion will be with an SME already established in HK and also a company starting up there. The final part of the seminar will give attendees ample chance to ask questions and seek guidance. Thanks to the kindness and generosity of Mayer Brown, the event will conclude with drinks and a good chance to talk further with those involved.

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 also provide authoritative assessment how Hong Kong business sits with mainland China and the wider region.

The evening is being very generously hosted by Mayer Brown LLP: attendees will be asked to arrive by 6.15 pm so that the seminar can start promptly at 6.30pm. Drinks will be served from 7.45 pm to 8.30 pm.

Space will be limited and seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Further details will be sent to those attending shortly before the event.

With great thanks to Mayer Brown International LLP

Venue: The Cavalry & Guards Club, 127 Piccadilly, London W1J 7PX
Time: 12.30pm Drinks, 1.00pm – 2.30pm Lunch

chairmanThe Guest of Honour for this Association Lunch will be Hong Kong’s Chief Justice.  He is the head of the Judiciary in Hong Kong and presides in the Court of Final Appeal.

Chief Justice Ma was admitted to the Hong Kong Bar in 1980, having been called to the English Bar in 1978.  He was appointed a QC in 1993.  He became a Judge in the Court of First Instance in 2001, a Justice of Appeal in 2002 and the Chief Judge of the High Court in 2003.  He was appointed the Chief Justice on 1 September 2010.

The relationship between the Judiciary in Hong Kong and its opposite numbers in the UK, as with other common law jurisdictions, remains close. The Chief Justice will discuss this relationship, its future and also the relationship with the Mainland judiciary.

It will also be particularly relevant to hear any views on the robustness of the rule of law in Hong Kong, faced as it is with a variety of challenges.
