‘China’s largest e-commerce company Alibaba failed to obtain an exemption from the listing rules of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.’


‘The Court of Final Appeal declared that it is unconstitutional to deny social security to new immigrants.’ As a governmental, financial and legal veteran, Dr Neoh will present his views on these matters, drawing from the historical development of the Rule of Law in the Western and Eastern World, how we have advanced in Hong Kong on the Rule of Law and how we can promote the Rule of Law under the concept of One Country Two systems.
