Hong Kong's changing financial landscape

LSE and LSE Students Union HKPASS and Finance societies public lecture


John Tsang Chun Wah, Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region will discuss post-financial crisis changes to Hong Kong's financial services sector and the potential benefits of these changes to markets around the world. How can Hong Kong maintain its competitive edge as an international financial and business centre in Asia?

Mr Tsang spent his secondary school years in La Salle College in Hong Kong and Stuyvesant High School in New York City. He pursued his interest in architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and went on to receive a Master Degree in Bilingual Education from Boston State College and a Master Degree in Public Administration from Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.

Mr Tsang worked in the Boston Public Schools prior to joining the Hong Kong civil service in November 1982. As a member of the Administrative Service, he served in a number of posts, including Administrative Assistant to the Financial Secretary, Assistant Director-General of Trade and Private Secretary to the Governor.

Mr Tsang served following reunification in a number of different capacities, including Director General of the London Economic and Trade Office, Commissioner of Customs and Excise, Secretary for Planning and Lands and Permanent Secretary for Housing, Planning and Lands (Planning and Lands).

Mr Tsang was appointed Secretary for Commerce, Industry and Technology in August 2003, and with the successful conclusion of the World Trade Organization Ministerial Conference in Hong Kong that he chaired in December 2005, he was appointed Director of the Chief Executive's Office in January 2006. He was appointed Financial Secretary in July 2007.

This lecture is the first in the Asian Business and Finance Elite Series organised by LSE Students Union Hong Kong Public Affairs and Social Service and Finance societies.
