The Center has always stayed true with its constitution. Other than analyzing the future trend and impact of the Belt and Road Initiative, the Center is also able to provide propositions on how Hong Kong can integrate into the long term development plan of the initiative. As stakeholders and executors of this initiative, the Center hopes to gather likeminded experts to provide in depth analysis on the direction of the initiative as a think tank. Under the support of macro policies, contribute by identifying opportunities for Hong Kong and illustrate with action the role that Hong Kong should embrace in the Belt and Road Initiative. We hope to advance everyone’s understanding of our center and cultivate closer ties between members through this banquet while we recap and look forward to our future development.
