The 4th China Reform (Hengqin) Forum held in Hengqin

Themed “Dialogue with the New Era”, the 4th China Reform (Hengqin) Forum was held in Hengqin on 7 September.

Sponsored by Caixin Media, a Beijing-based media group providing financial and business news and information under the aegis of the Hengqin New Area Administrative Committee, the forum consisted of keynote speeches, roundtable discussions and seminars centered on Development of the New Economy & Unicorn Enterprises, Belt & Road and China-Latin America Cooperation, among other topics.

Yang Chuan, director of the Hengqin New Area Administrative Committee, delivered a keynote speech noting that the development of the Greater Bay Area provides a golden opportunity for Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau, as well as Hengqin, to break through the development bottleneck. He also stated that, aside from providing an important free trade zone, Hengqin is now seeking a new approach to lead the regional economy with a better radiation effect.

Prominent figures in attendance included Long Yongtu, China’s former chief negotiator for the World Trade Organization entry and former vice-minister of commerce; Liu Shijin, deputy director of the Economic Council under the CPPCC and vice president of Development Research Foundation under the State Council; He Yafei, former vice-foreign minister and former deputy director of the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council; and Antony Leung Kam-Chung, chairman and CEO of Nan Fung Group and chairman and co-founder of New Frontier Corp.
