In a recent media interview, Prof. Heiwai Tang, Associate Dean of HKU Business School and Director of Asia Global Institute suggested three long-term directions to revitalize Hong Kong's economy: firstly, develop high value-added industries; secondly, enhance Hong Kong’s role as a bridge between mainland China and global markets; thirdly, optimize policies for nurturing and attracting talent.

Changing Consumption Habits and The Need for a Clearer Positioning of Structural Issues

Prof. Heiwai Tang, Associate Dean of HKU Business School and Director of Asia Global Institute, shared about the Hong Kong economic policies in an interview with EDigest. He pointed out that Hong Kong's economic "upstream" faces numerous issues, such as loans, rent, and raw material supply. These factors have kept the operating costs high for "downstream" businesses. Resolving these problems in a society that upholds small-government free-market principles is undoubtedly a tremendous challenge.
