Lantau as Super-connector: Launchpad for Professional Services in Guangdong West and GBA
Introduction

Strategically positioned in the GBA, Lantau is the gateway to the region’s boundless opportunities. Looking beyond the pandemic, how can we leverage SKYCITY to reinforce Hong Kong’s dual role as an international financial centre and a professional services hub to serve GBA development, particularly in western Guangdong? And how can we facilitate Hong Kong enterprises to capitalise on the vast potential of the GBA while strengthening connectivity and deepening mutual recognition of professional qualifications between the Mainland and Hong Kong? This panel considered how a new hub of professional services in SKYCITY can boost connectivity with western Guangdong and beyond in the GBA, and set the stage for quality living in the region.

Rethinking Tourism in Hong Kong: 2023 and Beyond
Introduction

The pandemic has accelerated trends in tourism that were apparent even before turn of the decade. How can Hong Kong capture the opportunities in these shifts and redefine its tourism appeal to both locals and travellers? And how can Hong Kong refresh and refine its position as an East-meets-West centre for international cultural exchange? With a host of attractions and landmarks opening at SKYCITY and in Lantau in the next few years, this panel explored how Hong Kong can carve out a unique tourism proposition for the GBA and beyond.
