Business Forum: 1:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. (Registration at 1:00 p.m.)

Annual Dinner: 6:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

To commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation and Hong Kong SAR’s 20th anniversary of reunification with the Peoples’ Republic of China, the CPA Canada Hong Kong Chapter is hosting this special event. At the business forum, world-class experts will share their insights on how to support strategic and sustainable business practices in the face of new challenges brought on by global climate change.

Partnerships between Canadian and Chinese companies are growing. Together, Canada and China can unite capital and expertise, leverage opportunities to promote clean growth, and help mitigate climate change in Canada, China and other emerging markets.

Following the business forum, the Chapter's annual dinner for 2017 will be held at the same venue. Mr. Jeff Nankivell, consul general of Canada in Hong Kong and Macao, and Ms. Joy Thomas, CPA Canada’s president and CEO, will deliver keynote addresses to our members and guests.

Members, you are cordially invited to join your Chapter's flagship event for professional learning and development, and to network with peers and review your Chapter's report card for the second term. This is the Hong Kong Chapter’s special event, organized for its members and guests, which will promise to be a fun-filled networking event fostering excellence and bonding among our Hong Kong members.
