Hong Kong – 19 April 2023: The CITIC CLSA China Event opens today at the Conrad Hong Kong, bringing together 300+ institutional investors and around 100 senior executives from 55 leading Chinese companies. Focusing on China recovery stories, the two-day event dives deep into four main themes: Macro, property and finance; Consumer recovery; Innovation and security; and Energy resources and environment. A distinguished lineup of expert speakers and award-winning CITIC CLSA and CITIC Securities analysts will present best-in-class China insights for global investors looking to tap into the China market in the post-pandemic era.

Throughout the event, keynotes, industry experts, corporate representatives and our macro and sector analysts will examine a variety of topics concerning China’s economic recovery.

Hans Fan, Deputy Head of HK/China Research at CITIC CLSA, said: “We are thrilled to bring back in-person conferences in Hong Kong with our CITIC CLSA China Event after a three-year halt due to the pandemic. As China fully reopens, we have seen a strong economic recovery reinforced by a consumer spending pickup and supportive policies for the property sector. As the Two Sessions concluded last month, this is the perfect time to get up-to-speed on how traditional and emerging sectors are driving China today. CITIC CLSA is delighted to provide actionable insights and exciting networking resources to help investors grasp the extraordinary opportunities China presents amid a volatile global investment environment.”
