At the launch event, Roberto Fernandez, research manager at Euromonitor International, will share findings on megatrends shaping business through 2030 within the Belt and Road initiative, a development strategy launched by the Chinese government promoting economic cooperation across the Eurasian continent, with Hong Kong contributing extensively.
Fernandez says, “Hong Kong has potential especially in e-commerce and FinTech and is expected to benefit from the Belt and Road initiative. We are here to support businesses wanting to seize the opportunity with actionable data and insights.”
Agilson Valle, general manager of Euromonitor International in Hong Kong, explains, “Hong Kong is, and will continue to be, the finance centre and service hub for Asia, bridging development and commerce across the region. We see ourselves as a continuing partner with the financial market in Hong Kong, with the new office allowing us to further strengthen our capabilities and network in the region.”
Euromonitor International’s Hong Kong subsidiary will be the company’s 14th office worldwide. The expansion not only addresses the growing demand in serving long-term customers, but also strengthens Euromonitor International’s research in Hong Kong with analysts on the ground.
“We’re excited to be establishing a presence in Hong Kong, just a few months after opening a new office in South Korea. Both new offices demonstrate our commitment to growing in Asia as well as our desire to support customers locally.” says Tim Kitchin, CEO of Euromonitor International.
