Within the context of sluggish growth of the global economy and the debate on anti-globalization, China launched the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013. China — together with other countries along the ancient land and maritime silk road — will together promote trade, increase investment, deepen the integration of the global financial market, strengthen policy communication, improve institutional capacity and create a favorable environment for professionals. The Belt and Road Initiative will play an important role in promoting global economic growth, international trade and financial cooperation, and globalization.

Located in the source area of the Belt and Road Initiative, Hong Kong is ideally placed to benefit. As an important regional financial market, with rich experience in international cooperation and human resources. Hong Kong’s comprehensive participation in the Belt and Road Initiative will not only accelerate the initiative’s development but also reshape the city’s economic and financial status.

Zhu Min, president of the National Institute of Financial Research at Tsinghua University and former deputy managing director of the International Monetary Fund will discuss both the opportunities and challenges of the Belt and Road Initiative for Hong Kong.


Dr. Zhu Min is President of the National Institute of Financial Research at Tsinghua University. He was Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund from 2011 to 2016. Previously he served as Special Advisor to the Managing director of the International Monetary Fund from 2010 to 2011. Before that, Dr. Zhu was a deputy governor of the People’s Bank of China, and prior to his service at China’s Central Bank, he served as a group executive vice president of the Bank of China. Dr. Zhu also worked at the World Bank and taught economics at Johns Hopkins University and Fudan University. He received his B.A. in economics from Fudan University, M.A. and Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University and M.P.A. from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.
