FS shares insights about the opportunities for banking industry at the HKAB’s event

The Hong Kong Association of Banks (HKAB) hosted “Dialogue with the Financial Secretary” today and was privileged to have the Honourable Paul Chan, the Financial Secretary (FS) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), as the keynote speaker. He addressed around 100 industry representatives on the opportunities that await Hong Kong as the city reopens and the future trends of the banking industry.

At the event, Mr. Chan also officiated the launch ceremony of the HKAB Talent for Future Programme alongside Ms. Mary Huen, Chairperson of the HKAB, and Mr. Eddie Yue, Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA).

In his speech, Mr Chan spoke of Hong Kong’s splendid development as international financial centre (IFC) and commended the contributions of the banking industry to Hong Kong’s success; and shared his thoughts on the optimistic future of Hong Kong’s financial services and the underpinning factors.  He also elaborated the new-term Government’s proactive approach in creating strong impetus of growth for Hong Kong, including, among other things, the Government’s position to facilitate virtual assets to thrive progressively and sustainably.

In her welcome remarks, Ms. Mary Huen, Chairman of the HKAB highlighted how the leadership of the HKSAR government, with the support of regulators and the robust operations of fellow financial institutions have helped Hong Kong rapidly emerge from the pandemic. As the city bounces back, the banking industry will continue to play a proactive and pivotal role to support the local economy, nurture young local talent, and connect mainland China with the world, making Hong Kong’s financial system even stronger and more competitive.

To further support the government’s efforts to strengthen the local  talent pool, the HKAB launched the Talent for Future Programme which aims to encourage more young people from various academic background and career history to join the banking industry by sharing somesuccessful transition stories.
