A forum will be organized on December 9 as part of the efforts to further strengthen Hong Kong's competitiveness as an international asset management center and the premier capital formation center for the Chinese mainland.

The "Forum on Hong Kong as an International Asset Management Center: Challenges and Opportunities" aims to facilitate the exchange of views and ideas on further strengthening Hong Kong's position on the financial services front, with particular emphasis on strategic development of human resources, according to Hong Kong's Permanent Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury Kevin Ho.

The forum is organized by the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau and the Advisory Committee on Human Resources Development in the Financial Services Sector.

The forum, with a maximum capacity of 300, has been oversubscribed with overwhelming support from all sectors of the financial services industry as well as academic institutions. Keynote speakers include Chairman of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited David Eldon and Executive Council member Laura Cha.

The committee was established in June, 2000, to foster better co-ordination of the efforts made by the government and the industry.
