July 8 Webinar: Quid Hong Kong?

8 July 2020

The decision by China to introduce a national security law in Hong Kong has sparked considerable controversy including US sanctions, a G7 statement and a European Parliament resolution calling for further EU action. The issue was also raised during the virtual EU-China summit on 22 June when the Chinese side restated the position that Hong Kong was an internal affair for China. But what are the likely implications now for the future of Hong Kong and the “one country, two systems” principle? What is the view from Beijing? How should the EU respond? Apart from the new security law, how has Hong Kong coped with Covid-19? What are the political, economic and financial prospects for Hong Kong? Should it fear increasing competition from other financial centres in Asia?

To discuss these and other issues we invite you to join our panel discussion from 1100-1200 CET on 8 July (Wednesday). The panel will be moderated by Fraser Cameron, Director of the EU-Asia Centre, and include:

Carmen Cano, Head of the EU Office to Hong Kong and Macao

Eddie Cheung, Special Representative for Hong Kong Economic and Trade Affairs to the EU

Gao Mingbo, Counsellor for Political Affairs, Mission of the People’s Republic of China to the EU (tbc)

Alexander De Beir, Chairman, Belgium-Hong Kong Society
