“InvestHK is honoured to support the Web3 Investment Summit. The timing could not be better, as the new policies announced by the regulators have created such an ideal and favourable environment for the Web3 sector to thrive in Hong Kong. The fact that so many leaders across the sector are gathering in one place is also a testament to the city's potential in becoming an international Web3 hub. We are eager to welcoming more Web3 events in the upcoming month and encourage the wider community to join us in exploring a new era of Fintech,” said King Leung, Head of Fintech at InvestHK.
"I am pleased that the government, business community, and industry professionals are all huge supporters of the Summit. The Summit creates a platform for industry leaders and representatives from all over the world conducting in-depth online and offline exchanges, providing different perspectives and insights on the development of Web3 in Hong Kong and the world,” said Allen Ng, CEO of Everest Ventures Group.
“To drive awareness and mass adoption of Web3, we will provide more Web3-related opportunities for exchanges in the future and tighten cross-sectoral ties. Making the local market more in line with the latest trend and development. We will also explore how to strategize Hong Kong's future digital economy and digital assets development, so as to prepare for and embrace various challenges and opportunities," Ng added.
