Hong Kong is Asia’s premier business location. Regularly ranked as one of the world’s best cities for doing business and as having one of the world’s most liberalised markets, Hong Kong is a major gateway to both Mainland China and to Asia more broadly.

Hong Kong has historically been an important investment and business destination for Australians, now, its strategic importance is greater than ever and only continuing to grow! It has never been more imperative for Australian professionals and businesses alike to engage with Hong Kong.

You too can take advantage of the fantastic opportunities that Hong Kong has to offer. Join us in listening to Dr. Luca De Leonardis, the Head for Australia and New Zealand at Invest Hong Kong, who will bring his considerable expertise to bear in delivering key insights and information on investing in, and engaging with, Hong Kong.

This will be followed by an opportunity to network with other attendees. Allowing you to meet other individuals with experiences and interests in Hong Kong as well as China. This will include ACYPI members, HKABA members as well as other leaders and participants from within the Australia-China relationship.


Dr. Luca De Leonardis is the Head for Australia and New Zealand at Invest Hong Kong (InvestHK). With senior management experience in both the private and public sectors, Dr. De Leonardis’s work experience combines international marketing, economic and business development and investment promotion. Prior to joining InvestHK, Dr. De Leonardis spent five years as Business Development Manager and subsequently as Deputy CEO of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Australia. He has also worked in New Zealand, Canada and South Africa for private companies and trade organisations.
