About the Event:
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.
