The Honourable Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of Hong Kong, delivering her keynote speech
Bloomberg LIVE hosted its ‘Invest Asia’ conference in Hong Kong this week, where more than 200 of the city’s most influential decision makers participated in a full day of discussions about top investment themes that matter to the region. Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of Hong Kong, delivered a keynote speech at the event and sat down for an exclusive Q&A about the future of Hong Kong.
Parry Ravindranathan, Managing Director, International of Bloomberg Media commented, “Our Invest Asia conference is designed to equip investors with the necessary insights, analysis and data to help them make intelligent and informed investment decisions.” He added, “This is only possible with a strong line-up of speakers and we are proud to have hosted a gathering of Asia’s most important business, finance and government leaders at our event.”
“What a pleasure to be able to speak to so many influential institutional investors at the Bloomberg Invest Asia Summit,” said Carrie Lam in her keynote speech. “Bloomberg has been doing extremely well in the last 25 years in Hong Kong. In fact Bloomberg is one of the 8,200 plus companies from overseas and the Mainland that have chosen Hong Kong as their regional headquarters,” she continued. “So for the distinguished institutional investors sitting in this room, I hope that what I am going to tell you is not just investing in Hong Kong, but investing through Hong Kong, using Hong Kong as your regional headquarters to access not only the Mainland market, but the rest of Asia, and probably the world.”
Other speakers at the event included Wei Sun Christianson, MD & Co-CEO Asia Pacific, CEO China, Morgan Stanley; Datuk Shahril Ridza Ridzuan, CEO, Employees Provident Fund of Malaysia; Jay Wintrob, CEO, Oaktree Capital; Ding Chen, CEO, CSOP Asset Management; Jessica Tan, Group Deputy CEO, Group COO and CIO, Ping An Insurance Group; and Kimberley Stafford, MD & Head of Asia-Pacific, PIMCO.
