Hong Kong Wins Banker Commitments to Push Ahead With Summit

  • Hong Kong plans to host gathering of bank chiefs in November
  • City is seeking to restore its status as global financial hub

Top executives from about 20 leading global firms have committed to flying in for Hong Kong’s financial summit, even as quarantine rules threaten to damp turnout at a conference designed to restore the city’s reputation as a regional hub.

The chief executive officers at HSBC Holdings Plc and Standard Chartered Plc, the two global banks with the biggest local presence, have already said they will attend the November two-day summit.
