HONG KONG  – The Hong Kong-ASEAN Summit 2024 is set to take place on September 13, 2024, marking a pivotal moment in the strengthening of ties between Hong Kong and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). This year’s summit, themed “Uniting for Growth and Innovation,” aims to build upon the success of the previous year’s gathering, which saw significant strides in cooperation and understanding.

The 2023 summit was a resounding success, culminating in numerous agreements that have since fostered increased economic, technological, and cultural exchanges. It set a precedent for the power of collaborative effort in addressing regional challenges and maximizing opportunities. The upcoming summit seeks to not only continue this positive trajectory, but also to expand upon it by focusing on the dynamic and rapidly evolving ASEAN markets.

Hong Kong’s strategic position as a global financial hub, combined with its sophisticated infrastructure and deep-rooted expertise, aligns perfectly with ASEAN’s vibrant economic landscape and its position as one of the world’s fastest-growing regions. The summit will explore avenues for deeper integration and partnership, particularly in sectors where Hong Kong shines, such as green finance and tech innovation.

Keynote speakers, including government dignitaries and industry leaders, will delve into discussions on how Hong Kong can aid ASEAN in achieving its ambitious environmental targets while also unlocking new paths for economic prosperity. The agenda is set to cover a range of topics, from fostering sustainable development to embracing the digital revolution, all to create a more interconnected and prosperous future for both regions.
