The Government today announced that Financial Mega Event Week will be held in the last week of March, with a series of top-tier international conferences and exhibitions to take place in the city.


The event will feature three world-class financial summits - the Wealth for Good in Hong Kong Summit (WGHK) on March 27, the inaugural One Earth Summit scheduled for March 25 and the Global Investors' Symposium to be held by the Milken Institute on March 26.


Financial Secretary Paul Chan noted at the Financial Mega Event Week launch ceremony that it will showcase Hong Kong's strengths, development potential and investment opportunities as an international financial centre.


“By bringing together family offices serving the wealthy around the world, investors, entrepreneurs and business starters, it will create more opportunities for cross-sectoral and cross-disciplinary co-operation, thereby attracting capital to Hong Kong and consolidating our position as an asset and wealth management centre.”


The WGHK is a top-level exclusive event for global family offices with "Growing with Certainty Amid Growing Uncertainty" as its theme, focusing on Hong Kong's steady development amid the external economic challenges by leveraging its diverse talent and innovative thinking to promote market growth.


The first major convention for influential and reputable global leaders from the sustainability field, the One Earth Summit will discuss climate issues of high importance to the financial sector, particularly on achieving net-zero emissions and creating a blueprint for the good of nature.


The Global Investors' Symposium, organised by the Milken Institute, is the first large-scale summit to be held in Hong Kong by the institute since 1998. It will bring together leaders and experts from a wide range of sectors to discuss ways to tackle the most pressing global challenges.


Among the international events to be held in the city are ComplexCon Hong Kong, the Art Basel Hong Kong Show and the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens.


Mr Chan also said the events are expected to generate strong synergy effects and attract people from all over the world to Hong Kong to experience its excitement and dynamism.
