Investment summit set for Dec

June 19, 2023

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government today welcomed the Future Investment Initiative (FII) Institute to host its inaugural PRIORITY Asia Summit in Hong Kong on December 7 and 8 this year, noting that it will provide support to the summit.


The summit will invite political and business leaders around the globe to engage in focused discussions on key issues cutting across different segments and areas of society amid accelerated socio-economic changes and under the current geopolitical climate.


Since 2017, the FII Institute has been organising its annual Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to discuss major political and economic issues and trends that shape the world as well as promote dialogue and exchanges among important stakeholders around the world. The initiative has become an annual flagship event in the Middle East.


In October last year, Financial Secretary Paul Chan attended the sixth edition of the initiative upon invitation and spoke at its plenary session.


This will be the first time for the institute to stage the PRIORITY Summit in Asia.


Mr Chan said he very much welcomes the FII Institute's decision to host the summit in Hong Kong.


“This demonstrates Hong Kong's unique position and role in connecting our country, Asia and the world, and will further deepen our ties with partners and counterparts around the globe, especially with those in the Middle East.


“The summit will be an important platform for gathering global political and business leaders, academics and experts to exchange views on world trends and topical issues. I trust this summit will be a great success with fruitful outcomes.”
