Dinner Talk (May 08)
Opportunities in Ma’s Presidency
With the sky in Taiwan turns from green to blue again after the presidential election in March, it is envisaged that there would be quite a number of policy changes. These impending policy changes in Taiwan will not only affect the existing political relationship between Mainland and Taiwan, but also bring about notable opportunities to the economics and financial markets in the two places.
So, what will be the likely policy changes? What we can feel and see in Hong Kong in term of the changing relationship? How will these changes affect Hong Kong’s existing role? And what would be the likely opportunities and threats for Hong Kong people? To find your own answers to these or similar questions, please join us at the May Dinner Talk!
Prof. Paul YIP (葉國華教授) will share will us again his personal insights on the above subject. Where time permits, Mr. Yip will also share with us his views on the hot Tibet / Olympic subject. Please act quickly to register as seats are limited.
