On 30 November 2023, Ms Chaoni Huang, HKGFA Executive Vice President (BNP Paribas), spoke at the 2023 Shanghai-HK Cooperation and Development Forum. Organised by the Better Hong Kong Foundation, the Forum gathered government representatives and regulators as well as experts from financial institutions and academia from Shanghai and Hong Kong to discuss how Shanghai-HK Cooperation can jointly contribute to the Nation’s green transition.
Chaoni shared outlooks on the sustainable finance market and highlighted Hong Kong’s important role as an offshore green finance centre in mobilising capital flow required to support Mainland China’s green transition and financing needs. Hong Kong is also home to various clusters of green technologies, start-ups, R&D talents, offering innovative solutions to meet enterprises’ huge demand on carbon reduction targets and risk mitigation.
HKGFA will continue to make concerted efforts with regulators and our industry members by facilitate collaboration opportunities and promoting Hong Kong as an international centre for green finance and green tech to help realise the carbon neutrality goal.
