Description

The Hon Paul Chan Mo-po, Financial Secretary of the Government of the HKSAR, will deliver the 2024/25 Budget on 28 February 2024.  While the Hong Kong economy revived moderately in 2023, the competition within the region and the uncertainties posed by the external environment have made it even more important for the government to come up with fiscal and tax measures that support Hong Kong’s economic growth and long term sustainability of public finance.

In this seminar, Ms Carol Liu, the President of TIHK, Ms Ada Ma and Mr Desmond Wong, the Council Members of TIHK, will discuss the highlights of the 2024/25 Budget and share their insights with our members.
