Description

Hong Kong has been one of the fastest growing East Asian economies since the end of the Second World War. The adoption and practice of economic freedom have been major pillars in its economic success. The experience of Hong Kong has served as a reference for other emerging economies in the region. This seminar will review the global context and ingredients of economic freedom that have brought success and prosperity to Hong Kong. It will ask “what if” questions and elaborate the Hong Kong Challenges to Economic Freedom.

Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP by February 4, 2013.
