Building on the success of CASI's inaugural in-person event in Brazil, which attracted over 200 participants from across Latin America, we are now gearing up for our next endeavor in the vibrant city of Hong Kong, extending our reach across Asia.


Hosted by Capacity-building Alliance of Sustainable Investment (CASI)

Building on the success of CASI's inaugural in-person event in Brazil, which attracted over 200 participants from across Latin America, we are now gearing up for our next endeavor in the vibrant city of Hong Kong, extending our reach across Asia. Themed "Empowering Sustainability and Prosperity in Asia," this event aims to spotlight solutions and enhance the capacity for connectivity and low-carbon transitions in the region, with a special focus on Southeast, Central, and East Asia.

Co-hosted by the Institute of Finance and Sustainability, Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) Infrastructure Financing Facilitation Office (IFFO), and the University of Hong Kong, this in-person capacity-building event is scheduled for June 24-28, 2024. It is part of the initiative of the Capacity-building Alliance of Sustainable Investment (CASI), an international platform dedicated to delivering high-quality and impactful capacity-building services in sustainable finance for EMDEs.

Over the course of five days, the event will comprise two parts. The first leg will consist of two days of in-house workshops in Hong Kong, featuring six thematic sessions covering topics like Market Updates and Policy Frameworks for Sustainable Finance, Sustainability Disclosure, Financing Green and Low-carbon Transition in Asia, Sustainable Projects Needed to Enhance Connectivity and Prosperity in Asia, the Role of Blended Finance in Decarbonizing Infrastructure Projects, and Biodiversity Conservation and Blue Finance. From interactive panel discussions to expert keynote speeches, participants can anticipate a dynamic and immersive experience designed to inspire, educate, and empower.

Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to visit Huzhou, Zhejiang Province in mainland China from June 27-28. As a leading hub for green finance pilot projects in China, Huzhou offers a chance to witness innovative projects and investment practices driving sustainable progress. A crucial element is to showcase how small and medium-sized enterprises in Huzhou are actively engaged in the local green finance system. The visit may also generate some business opportunities. Participants traveling to Huzhou will need to transit via high-speed train on June 26th.
