SAVE THE DATE!  Part 2 in Series on Houston - Hong Kong Connection

Time & Location

May 24, 2021, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM CDT


About the Event

As world economies start to emerge out of the pandemic, new marketing strategies and "thinking global" are part of the conversation.  Choosing countries and cities beyond local borders can open doors to innovative possibilities, but making informed decisions before you make the "leap" is a must.    

Join the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, Greater Houston Partnership and the Port Houston for a webinar discussing "A Tale of Two Leading Global Economic Cities: Hong Kong and Houston".  Our panel of experts in both markets will help to answer the question of where to start and share snapshots of why these two cities are ripe for growth.    Hong Kong and Houston are strong markets in trading & logistics, startups, biotechnology, food, financial services and top-notch talent pools.  Their connectivity to destinations across their respective countries and around the world truly embody "a tale of two global cities".

This webinar is Part 2 in a series featuring Hong Kong and Houston.  Part 1 was on April 20 with the Startup Grind Houston and Hong Kong focusing on the startup ecosystems in both cities.
