Mr. Lo said in his official conference welcome speech, “Our Hong Kong city has long been a connector between China and the rest of the world in terms of trade, finance and culture. Against the backdrop of this environment, while ShineWing Hong Kong takes a supportive role of promoting Chinese businesses, we are also highly involved in the international expansion of ShineWing. Over the years, we have been working collaboratively with all of the ShineWing member firms to facilitate the growth of our global network and showcase the prominence of ShineWing.”

Mr. Zhang also highlighted the future development strategy of ShineWing International in his Chairman’s address.  “To continually strive for the growth of ShineWing in the international market, we would keep developing our network, expanding from Asia Pacific to other continents.  We would also promote work referral and collaboration among member firms and further exchange of talents and resources. ” said Mr. Zhang.

We had two panel discussions on “Driving Connectivity across Member Firms during the Era of Globalization” and “Unlocking Opportunities across Service Lines and Regions”.  There were 5 other breakout sessions, namely audit and assurance, tax, initial public offering, advisory, and transaction services, exploring how to optimize performance in different service lines.  The Gala Dinner, held on 2 November, which was a part of the conference programme, also allowed more networking opportunities for our worldwide partners to exchange with the VIP clients and guest speakers.  The conference ended with the farewell dinner and peak night walk, letting our partners enjoy the beauty of Hong Kong after the three-day conference.
