Research Seminar on “Prospering in a Time of Tariffs: How to Ensure Your Business is Not a Trade War Casualty”
B P International, No. 8 Austin Road, Tsim Sha Tsui
Cantonese and English (English to Cantonese consecutive interpreting available)
Trade tensions between the Chinese mainland and United States are escalating with the US introducing another round of tariffs on US$200 billion worth of mainland goods last month. Exemptions, Section 321 (low value per unit) shipments and relocation are some of the options Hong Kong companies can use to lessen the negative impact and ride out the storm. Industry representatives and legal experts will share practical tips as well as various customs strategies and export options available for Hong Kong exporters to cope with the latest developments in a HKTDC seminar. In addition, representatives from the Trade and Industry Department of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and Hong Kong Export Credit Insurance Corporation will introduce new support measures and services for local companies.
