Details :

Since the Belt and Road Initiative was first announced in 2013, Hong Kong's role as super connector has never been more important.


Especially with the recent developments in Southeast Asia, there is a huge opportunity for young professionals to export HK service to these emerging markets, to kick start these economies and bring about social mobility and cultural exchange to these countries.


Ho has a keen interest in exporting Hong Kong professional services abroad, as exemplified by his current projects across Southeast Asia, Europe and USA. Aligning with the PRC’s mandate to develop the Belt and Road Initiative, he has been actively travelling across the region to build and promote partnership alliances along the New Silk Road.


In this talk we will explore different channels to find your Belt and Road way!
