HKTDC Webinar Series 2021- "Thriving On Collaboration & People-to-people Link"

About this event

About the webinar

Hong Kong has one of the largest Australian communities with around 100,000 Australians residing in Hong Kong and was Australia’s fifth-largest source of total foreign investment reaching AUD141.6 billion at the end of 2020. This includes direct, portfolio investment and other investments. The number sees the greatest growth amongst the top five foreign investors in Australia at 10.9% growth across a 5-year trend.

There is no doubt that Australia and Hong Kong has a long-standing relationship, driven by strong bilateral trade & investment and most importantly, a close-knitted people-to-people link through a vibrant business presence in each other’s economies.

Join us at this panel discussion on the topic “Australia-Hong Kong Investment Relations: Thriving on collaboration and strong people-to-people link”, where senior executives from two well-established HK companies will share their thoughts on how collaboration and people-to-people-link bring a positive impact to financial & social prosperity through investment.

Mr Girish Jhunjhnuwala is the Founder and CEO of Ovolo Group, which owns and operates hotels in Australia, Hong Kong, and Bali. Founded in 2010, he has led Ovolo to continuously challenge industry conventions, bringing on new approaches aimed at the modern traveller. Since then, Ovolo Hotels has grown into a diversified group with an international collection of thirteen designer properties across these regions and plans to keep growing.

The Ovolo experience is driven by his desire for all-inclusivity, which is a promise to guests that once checked in, all key touchpoints of the hotel are truly free. This is joined by another of Ovolo’s signature characteristics, which steers away from the traditional “cookie-cutter” approach: each property has its own story, design, and touch.
