Liquidity Crunch Forum

9 November, 2011 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free Admission

ASrIA, China Water Risk and the British Consulate-General Hong Kong will host “Liquidity Crunch” featuring expert speakers who will present their analysis on how climate change and water scarcity will impact China’s economic rise and pose potential energy constraints. Implications for investors and businesses in China will be significant. The new 12th Five Year Plan has some of the most aggressive energy, water and emission reduction targets to date. How will different industries be affected? Will they need to relocate? What can governments and businesses do to mitigate these risks? Experts will share their insights to these questions and more.
