We meet overseas visitors who are visiting Hong Kong in an official capacity to discuss issues that are relevant to them regarding the city. These include business executives, policymakers, diplomats, scholars, journalists and leaders in civil society. We listen to what they wish to know about Hong Kong and, speaking as people born here or who have spent most of our working lives in Hong Kong, candidly share our individual knowledge and insights. Our meetings are informal – usually taking place over breakfast – and we observe the Chatham House Rule to allow for frank and open discussion.
To keep ourselves well informed, we also meet with local individuals who have their fingers on the domestic pulse and are equally committed to Hong Kong’s future.
The purpose of our candid conversations is simple; to provide the opportunity to engage in thoughtful discussion about Hong Kong, it’s relevant issues and its future.
Vision 2047 Foundation does not take an institutional position on issues that affect Hong Kong. Diversity of views amongst our members and frank and open exchange is encouraged. The common link between members is our commitment to the long-term well being of Hong Kong and the belief that thoughtful and respectful exchange generates greater understanding of different views. When we engage with visitors seeking to know more about Hong Kong, we hope our conversations with them will develop their understanding of our city.
