HKGCC Webinar on Reopening HK Travel

On Wednesday 4 November 4:00-5:30 PM the HK General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC) is organizing a very interesting webinar on reopening our borders. BLCC members can attend this webinar free of charge with a special discount code. Here is the event description:

*****
With Covid-19 infections being kept under control in both the Mainland & HK, the HKgov is actively looking for ways to reopen the border to help the economy and different sectors badly hit by the pandemic get back on their feet.

For this to happen, Covid-19 tests before departure and upon arrival will be required for travellers. This will call for rapid testing solutions and relevant health and safety measures at every point, from aeroplane, airports, hotels and ground transportation.

What is the business community doing to make the travel bubble arrangement possible? How soon can it be implemented, and under what conditions? Will Hong Kong lead the way in reopening with the help of technology?

At this seminar, organized by HKGCC’s Belt & Road Working Group, a panel of speakers will talk about the latest work being done to reopen HK and minimize potential risks.

The Honourable Edward Yau Tang-wah, GBS, JP, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, will talk about the government’s latest efforts to reopen travel and to resume economic activities safely and progressively.

Danny Yeung, CEO and Co-founder of Prenetics, a genetics and diagnostic health testing company, will talk about its latest rapid nuclei test and how Hong Kong can implement it to make low-cost, 15-30 minute on-the-spot testing possible.

Arnaud Bernaert, Head of Shaping the Future of Health and Healthcare, World Economic Forum, will introduce their projects that can help economies overcome the pandemic and return to a new normal.
