BBA Alumni Association Policy Maker Talk Series: “What Lies Ahead for Hong Kong”

After successfully keeping COVID-19 at bay, we definitely hope to see more relaxation of the pandemic-related restrictions. The next question is how soon our economy can return to normal. While the Hong Kong Government has launched the consumption voucher scheme to stimulate local economic activities, with so many other places racing ahead of Hong Kong in the vaccination and reopening stakes, there is a concern that we could lose our competitive edge. Meanwhile, how to ride on the nation’s GBA, Belt and Road initiative as well as the 14th Five-Year-Plan will also affect the future of Hong Kong. As such, The CUHK BBA Alumni Association is delighted to have invited Dr Bernard Chan, Under Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, to be our guest speaker to give an overview of government initiatives which should help promote the economic development of Hong Kong at a webinar to be held on 27 July.

Dr Bernard Chan has served as the Under Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development since August 2017, and was the Political Assistant to the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development from 2013 to 2017. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and a PhD degree in biomedical engineering from Duke University, USA. Before joining the Government, Dr Chan spent about 10 years working in the technology sector, focusing on intellectual property trading and crossover collaboration. From 2008 to 2013, Dr Chan served as a member of the Kwun Tong District Council.
