Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office in San Francisco is delighted to invite you to a keynote speech by Senior Vice President of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (HKEX), Mr Michael Chan.

The Hong Kong Economic in Trade Office will also present on R&D matching grant and the new Innovation and Technology Venture Fund in Hong Kong.

The event is complimentary and food and drinks will be served.
