Our latest webinar gathers a panel of leading financial and legal experts in Hong Kong’s maritime sector to share their authoritative knowledge about the issues facing the city; a top-class financial and legal services hub for shipping. 

The challenges facing the city are obvious, with the city caught in the middle of simmering US-China strife and its prominence being threatened by neighboring maritime centres.

Progress has been made to overcome these difficulties and increase the territory’s attraction. This includes the new local tax regime for ship leasing and the inclusion of Hong Kong as a named arbitration venue by BIMCO.

While the effectiveness of those efforts remains to be seen, maritime players seeking an optimal place to operate or facilitate their business are keen to understand the implication of those changes—the opportunities and the risks.

1. What impact America's Biden presidency will likely have on Hong Kong’s shipping cluster
2. Hong Kong’s tax incentive policy for ship leasing, and what are the implications for shipping lenders and borrowers? 
3. If Hong Kong continue to call itself a neutral ground for dispute resolution
4. How will China’s “dual circulation” economic development strategy impact Hong Kong’s position as a global financial and legal services centre? 
5. What fresh opportunities might emerge for shipping?
