Dear Subscriber,

It is our pleasure to invite you to our first ‘live’ meeting in 2021, the 
Seminar: "Hong Kong & the Greater Bay Area: Shaping the Logistics of the future"

The logistic industry in Hong Kong, China's Greater Bay Area and the Netherlands has seen major changes in recent years. Driven by the digital mindset of the consumers, the already booming E-commerce market has soared, especially after the COVID pandemic. The volume of packages sent between China, Hong Kong and the Netherlands already more than doubled between 2016 and 2020, and is expected to increase rapidly going forward. Technology, big data, globalisation and sustainability are some of the factors which impact this industry.

Join this seminar to hear how leading companies prepare themselves and find innovative solutions for these new and emerging trends to remain competitive. Find out how the logistics industry has an impact on your company and which opportunities the future brings.

Attending the seminar is free of charge for members and non-members of the Netherlands Hong Kong Business Association.

The seminar is organised by the Netherlands Hong Kong Business Association in collaboration with the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Brussels, Invest Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council. The event is supported by the Netherlands China Business Council. Event partners are Rotterdam Partners and NLinBusiness. Table sponsors are IGC International, Acclime Group and Capricorn Partners. Sponsor: Cathay Pacific Airways.

The seminar is followed by the Netherlands - Hong Kong Friendship Dinner
