About the Event:

A Road Side Air Pollution Panel discussion featuring key government decision makers, concerned companies, and influential NGOs. In connection with the significant measures announced in the Chief Executive's January policy address, we believe this discussion, while as relevant as always, may be undertaken in an environment of great momentum. Specifically, we want to find out how new measures translate into business opportunities for the international business, and what the potential obstacles are.
