Collaborative Efforts for a High-Profile Event

This collaboration underscores the importance of international cooperation in fostering economic growth and innovation.
Hong Kong: The Ideal Host
Nicolas Aguzin, the Chief Executive of the city’s stock exchange operator, emphasized Hong Kong’s unique position as a “super-connector” in the global economy.
During a press conference, Aguzin highlighted the city’s pivotal role in connecting diverse markets and its suitability as the host for Asia’s first FII Summit.
“In today’s challenging macro environment, it is crucial to strengthen the channels that support global connectivity. Capital always seeks new opportunities, and we must pave the way forward,” he stated.
Shifting Global Investment Focus
Aguzin pointed out a significant shift in global investment trends.
While investors traditionally focused on American and European markets, Saudi Arabia is emerging as a new powerhouse, acting as a “connector” between South Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia.
This shift highlights the growing importance of diverse global markets in the investment landscape.
