Asian Financial Forum 2011 - Asia: Reshaping the global agenda
17 – 18 January 2011, Hong Kong SAR
Deloitte China is Diamond Sponsor
The Asian Financial Forum 2011 - Asia: Reshaping the global agenda (AFF) will take place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 17 – 18 January 2011.
This year's forum will address major issues, challenges and opportunities facing the region and the Chinese mainland in particular. Topics such as financial reform and regulatory changes, strategies for business expansion in Asia, China’s outbound mergers and acquisitions, internationalization of the RMB and how green concepts can be an engine for growth will also be covered. The AFF 2011 is a significant and timely opportunity for participants to assess together how business practices, and global flows of investment and trade are being reshaped from both the regulatory and corporate perspectives one year after the aftermath of the global financial crisis and the ensuing economic downturn.
Key speakers include:
Professor Robert Mundell, Columbia University; Mr. Cheng Siwei, Former Vice-Chairman, Standing Committee, National People's Congress; Mr. Rintaro Tamaki, Vice Minister of Finance for International Affairs, Japan; and Mr. Patrick Raaflaub, CEO, Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority.
As the Diamond Sponsor, Deloitte China is sponsoring the keynote luncheon on 17 January and hosting a workshop on 18 January.
Deloitte workshop: The RMB investment surge and its impacts on Greater China financial markets and services
Date: 18 January 2011 (Tuesday)
Time: 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (immediately after the luncheon in the AFF main program)
Among the most pronounced developments is the huge proliferation and diversification of financial investors, enabled through new partnerships rules and the opening of the door to renminbi funds under private domestic and foreign management.
An expert panel will discuss the potential impact on evolving investment and exit options, on non-renminbi equity markets, on banks, and on China's goal to position the renminbi for greater international use. Following "Hong Kong as China's Global Financial Center – The Renminbi Dimension" in Asian Financial Forum's conference main programme, the discussion will also focus on what changes are necessary in currency management regulations to maximise the benefits and minimise the imbalances across Greater China as renminbi financial investment becomes the dominant feature of China's investment landscape.
