Webinar | Post-covid Competitiveness and the Challenges of Hong Kong SAR China

July 22, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

The pandemic and its subsequent global crisis has taught us that the competitiveness of nations is now more important than ever.  In the midst of a deglobalization process, with trade conflicts and trade wars, and restrictions to the movement of people, national policies are going to play a more fundamental role in the prosperity of people.

Prof. Arturo Bris of the IMD Business School will present the 2020 IMD World Competitiveness Center, the reasons for Hong Kong’s drop in the ranking and its meaning for the future. Possible solutions to the current global issues through the lens of the competitiveness model will be discussed.

Please register HERE!

IMD World Competitiveness Center is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge on world competitiveness by offering benchmarking services for countries and companies using the latest and most relevant data on the subject.

2019 marked the 30th anniversary of the IMD World Competitiveness Center.  For the past 30 years, the Center has spearheaded research on how nations and enterprises compete to lay the foundations for future prosperity.

Please see HERE additional reading about the position of Hong Kong in the annual economic competitiveness report.

We look forward to welcoming you online.

With best regards,
Your SwissCham Team
