From 21st to 26th Jan 2024, Prof. Fan Gang, President of China Development Institute, was invited by the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to visit Hong Kong and conduct in-depth exchange with government officials, including Financial Secretary Mr. Paul Chan Mo-po and President of the Legislative Council Mr. Andrew Leung, and various HKSAR departments discussing Hong Kong’s latest trends of political, economic and social developments.

Although Hong Kong was faced with external challenges, its economy saw steady growth in 2023. Stable increase of net fund inflow into the stock market and expansion of the scale of asset and wealth management showed that investor’s confidence in Hong Kong international financial center remained strong. Looking forward, Hong Kong will continue to strengthen its ties with the international market, further integrate within the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, while transforming itself into a hub for innovation and technology development.

During his visit, Prof. Fan attended the Asian Financial Forum and chaired the panel discussion on “Stewarding China’s New Chapter”.
