40th Anniversary of China's Reform and Opening Up

This year marks the 40th anniversary of China’s reforms and opening up, the country has transformed itself from a largely agricultural nation into the second largest economy in the world. For decades, Hong Kong industrialists have been the active contributors to the Mainland China’s development. At the same time, the country’s reform is a key impetus for Hong Kong as it propelled the city’s industrial and economic development. As our country steps into a “new era” of development, Hong Kong should renew its mission to play a new role, seize the opportunities arising from the Belt and Road Initiative and Bay Area development and integrate into the overall development of our Country.
To bring together the business sector and members of public to celebrate this milestone, CMA will organise a series of celebration events to demonstrate the splendid course, great accomplishments and precious practices of the 40 years of reform and opening up.

This 10-epsidoe series will give insight into China and its development over the past 40 years and will be aired from 30 September to early December on TVB Jade and Finance & Information Channels. The detailed schedule is as follows:
  • Jade Channel
    30 September to early December
    Every Sunday, 7:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m
  • Finance & Information Channel
    30 September to early December
    Every Sunday, 11:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
The programme is a good opportunity for the general public to enrich their knowledge of the country’s development process and its achievements over the past four decades. Please stay tuned!

Jointly published by CMA and Hong Kong Economic Times, the book aims to document the journey of Hong Kong industrialists’ participation in Mainland China’s transformation and to take a forward-looking perspective to analyse the development approach of Hong Kong industries. The book interviews a number of Hong Kong industrialists and entrepreneurs who were pioneers to set up factories in the Mainland. They tell us how they seize the opportunities arising from the nation’s development and keep up with the trends to remain competitive. The book will be published in early December 2018.
The high-level luncheon to be held on 12th December, 2018 marks the climax in the string of CMA’s commemorative events.  Distinguished speakers including senior government officials from the mainland and HKSAR, prominent industrialist and financial experts will be invited to share with the audience the new opportunities for Hong Kong brought by China’s further reforms.
