After Suzhou, there are no more boats: John Slosar to US businesses

Mr John Slosar, the Hong Kong chairman of the Hong Kong-United States Business Council and Chairman of John Swire & Sons, gave a visionary outline of and highlighted the opportunities for US business in Hong Kong at a luncheon in New York on August 3.

He first reviewed the achievements of Hong Kong in the past 20 years, such as becoming the top destination for IPOs, being named the world’s freest economy, and achieving the world’s longest life expectancy (surpassing Japan).

For HK's current position and future outlook, Mr. Slosar believed Hong Kong's close economic connectivity and geographical proximity to the Mainland would continue to be its greatest competitive edges. With greater economic integration with the Chinese economy via the Greater Bay Area and Lok Ma Chau Loop projects, as well as the prospect of business growth due to the Belt and Road investment initiative, Hong Kong would provide tremendous business opportunities for the U.S. enterprises.

He cited the saying in Hong Kong, which was also quoted by Chinese President Xi in the 20A celebratory ceremony in Hong Kong (July 1), that "after Suzhou there are no more boats", and called on the U.S. businesses to seize the opportunities.

Supported by the HKETONY, the luncheon at the University Club was co-organized by the Hong Kong Association of New York and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.
