China from a Hong Kong perspective
April 20 2018
Ivan Chu, Chairman of John Swire & Sons (China) will discuss developments in the Pearl River Delta including bridge and rail projects; the Belt and Road Initiative and what it means for rail links between China and London; and the notion of the Euro-Asian Century, as opposed to Pacific Century. He will deal with China’s capacity to re-engineer and self-correct, and canvass the success of the anti-corruption drive in underpinning Chinese President Xi Jinping’s popularity. All of this has implications for Australia. Mr Chu, former Chief Executive of Cathay Pacific, was appointed Chairman of John Swire & Sons (China) Limited in May 2017. He plays a leading role in the Swire Group’s overall mainland China investment and development strategy.
Time: 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
