Elaborating on the theme of the 25th anniversary, “A New Era — Stability • Prosperity • Opportunity”, he recounted how Hong Kong had regained stability with the National Security Law and improvements to the electoral system. He was optimistic about Hong Kong's institutional strengths and robust economic performance, underpinned by leading positions in different world rankings. He also shared the city's opportunities ahead, as an international aviation hub, an international innovation and technology hub, a regional intellectual property trading centre, and an East-meets-West centre for international cultural exchange.

The keynote speaker of the luncheon is Dr Denis Hew, Director and Head of Research of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), who shared his economic forecast for 2022. The event was graced by some 50 guests, including representatives of HSBA and Hong Kong Trade Development Council, as well as figures from different business sectors.
