Changes in Hong Kong laws and regulations and the authorities
As the last seminar of the year, we will co-host a seminar on November 24 with Hong Kong Lawyer, Mr. Munenori Kaku. On the day of the seminar, Hong Kong Lawyer, Mr. Munenori Kaku will talk about changes in Hong Kong laws and regulations as well as developments by the authorities.
In recent years, there has been a succession of reports in the mass media on Hong Kong, such as the Chineseization of Hong Kong, the National Security Law issue, and the suppression of democracy movement, etc. Based on his experience as a corporate lawyer in Hong Kong for over 13 years, as a legal manager of a Japanese financial institution in Hong Kong and as an attorney providing advice from the outside, Mr. Kalai will discuss the current situation of Hong Kong law in Hong Kong. Based on his experience as a legal director of a Japanese financial institution in Hong Kong and as an attorney at law, this seminar will focus on the recent business and legal developments in Hong Kong after Corona, especially the major changes in laws and regulations and policy changes by the authorities after 2022, basic topics of basic corporate law in Hong Kong, as well as employment law and other areas. The seminar will also cover selected topics, with reference to the recent developments in the business and legal systems in Hong Kong, especially the major changes in laws and regulations and policy changes by the authorities after 2022.
Hong Kong continues to function as a so-called tax haven, as well as a financial and logistics hub in Asia, and its legal system remains based on the common law under the Hong Kong Basic Law. Therefore, we believe that it is essential to keep up-to-date with such information in order to conduct business in Hong Kong. These topics include important cases, precedents, and regulatory updates on corporate law, labor law, personal information protection law, and the Securities and Futures Ordinance, as well as information about the authorities (the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, and the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission), Hong Kong Monetary Authority, The Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data, Labour Department, Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau, Companies Registry, etc.), including updates on policies and consultation papers. In recent years, the most notable topics have been regulations and policies related to fintech, including virtual currencies, anti-money laundering, and other financial legislation, as well as topics related to the Personal Data Protection Act. In the past few years, the Hong Kong authorities have been actively implementing measures to bring regulations in line with so-called global standards in order to ensure that Hong Kong continues to function as a global financial hub in areas that are attracting international attention, such as fintech and personal data protection.
These changes may affect not only Japanese companies in Hong Kong, but also companies that do business with Hong Kong or have some other connection to Hong Kong. Over the past several years, Mr. Munenori Kaku has regularly provided information on changes in laws and regulations in Hong Kong and developments by the authorities.
