17 January 2017 (Tuesday) - Day 2
08:15 - 09:15 Breakfast Panel on Positioning Hong Kong in the New World Order
Sponsored by:
The "new world order" has evolved with the launch of the Belt and Road Initiative, the increasing usage of RMB in international transactions as manifested by RMB's entry into the SDR on 1 October 2016, and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change (COP21) confirming increasing concern on environment and sustainable development. The rise of Fintech has brought in new financial institutions providing financial services to a large number of consumers and investors, as well as changing the ways banks and corporations interact with their clients and each other.

Hong Kong stands ready to ride on these very important new developments leveraging on its role as an international financial centre, a super-connector as well as an efficient intermediary. Hong Kong being the top offshore RMB business centre through which most of the international transactions denominated in RMB are intermediated is a good reflection of Hong Kong's role as a super-connector of substance.

In this session, a panel of distinguished speakers with in-depth knowledge on these subjects will discuss how businesses and investors in Hong Kong can get ready for the "new order" - to take the best advantage of the changes and keep abreast with the latest new developments.

11:00 - 12:00 Concurrent Workshop: Future of Fintech: Crossover, Convergence, Remoulding

Sponsored by:
The global economy underwent substantial changes in 2016, and the Chinese economy entered the New Normal after rapid growth in the past three decades. Financial technology, or fintech, represented by block chain technology, has become the new spotlight and attracted widespread attention. Yicai Hong Kong Financial Forum will engage government officials, research institutes, financial institutions and internet companies in discussions about the roots and future development of the fintech market.

As the nucleus of economic development, finance is at the core of modern economies and plays an important role in the implementation of innovation-driven development strategies. With its innovative nature, internet finance brings about new operating models and theories. Furthermore, inclusive online financial services function as supplementary within the Chinese financial system. However, the occurrence of risk events has exposed the mounting risks behind the fintech boom. How to protect the innovative nature of internet finance businesses, and keep risks in check at the same time? What should we do to reach a balance between fintech innovations and risk prevention? What is the approach to fintech regulation adopted by Chinese regulators? What is their stance on fintech regulation?
