About Industrialist Forum

The FHKI, with the support of KPMG, organised the 2016 Industrialist Forum in June 2016 to provide a platform where industrialists, investors/capital providers, academia and government officials exchanged views on the prospects of Hong Kong industries. It was an excellent opportunities for stakeholders from various sectors to ponder on how to identify and capitalize the emerging opportunities in the global market.

In view of the success of the 2016 Industrialist Forum, we organise the Industrialist Forum again in 2018, in particular to tie in technology and innovation initiatives rolled by the HKSAR government in the Policy Address and the Budget so as to look into the prospectus of advanced manufacturing in Hong Kong.
