2017: a year of unprecedented risks!

Steve Vickers is an expert on political and security issues and will present to you:
  • The risks faced by foreign firms in Asia,
  • The 2017 pan Asia risk assessment.
  • ​​​China: A tightening political climate, rising PRC economic nationalism, and a tauter international environment all pose challenges for China in 2017, suggesting that risks for investors could rise markedly.      
  • Hong Kong: The political contest in Hong Kong shows no sign of resolution, with governmental stasis, more protests, and weakening rule of law, which pose moderate risks to investors in 2017.
  • Macau: Macau can look forward to relative political stability and a reviving economy in 2017, although Beijing’s current preoccupation with curtailing capital outflows, rising economic nationalism and the outside chance of a terrorist attack on a casino still pose threats. 
  • Taiwan: An ailing economy and heightened tensions with China present a test for Taiwan’s government in 2017.
