The Forum took a focused look at financial investment under the OBOR Initiative and discussed topics such as the legal, investment, and other potential risks from a cultural and religious perspective as well as policies under the OBOR Initiative.

There were five keynote speeches and two panel discussions. The keynote speakers were Prof. Ningning Xu of China-ASEAN Business Council, Mr. Shuang Chen of China Everbright Limited, Mr. Anthony Leung of Nan Fung Group, Prof. Shusong Ba of HKEX, and Prof. Jianbo Gao of Guangxi University. The keynote speakers gave their views on topics such as ASEAN and the OBOR Initiative, the Chinese Enterprise going global and the Hong Kong capital market under the OBOR Initiative, the role of Hong Kong under the OBOR Initiative based on its legal environment, and promoting OBOR through big data analysis.

The forum was attended by around 70 participants from various institutions and universities from Hong Kong and the region. All the panels and talks were well received by the audience. The aim of the co-organizers was that the Forum will facilitate a dialogue between academics and practitioners, and discuss the benefits and risks under the OBOR Initiative, which is a current issue.
