9TH CFO INNOVATION HONG KONG FORUMTraversing through Uncertainties: Building an Agile Risk Management Portfolio by Optimizing Resources
18 -19 November 2020
Cordis, Hong Kong
9TH CFO INNOVATION HONG KONG FORUM
Hong Kong is considered as a gateway for cross-border trade and a matured risk management center, highly connected with international markets. Most recently, the “BRIC Plus” and “the Belt and Road Initiative” has boosted market confidence and economic growth for the region and Hong Kong in particular. As a trend, industries that cater to private consumption, building and construction, as well as exports are expected to remain growth-supportive.
But, 2018 has also been marked by a return of volatility triggered by a reappraisal of inflation risk in the US. Hong Kong’s open economy, where free-trade is an important foundation of its economic success, is most likely going to be affected. The impact could stem from the impending tariffs and constraints on commodity movement with trading and logistics sector in Hong Kong contribute to 22% of its GDP and employ one-fifth of its labor force.
At the 9th CFO Innovation Hong-Kong Forum, finance leaders across the major industries will discuss these upcoming geo-political and economic events and present how these destabilizing challenges can be addressed via efficient integration of new technology trends. With the fastest technological integration expected in areas such as Robotics Process Automation (RPA), cloud-based applications and advanced analytics, the finance function is set to rapidly adjust and address the capability gap. Technologies apart, the event will also be bringing together financial leaders to present best practices in creating efficiencies and enhancing finance department’s strategic value across the whole enterprise.
