HSBC is proud to be the principal partner for March's GREAT Festival of Innovation, held in Hong Kong and hosted by the UK Government's Department for International Trade.

This four day event showcases the best examples of innovation feeding the ideas of tomorrow in technology, trade, fashion, finance and education.

Innovation is the lifeblood of future business success. And as a keen supporter of companies that are re-examining their growth strategies in the face of today's global challenges, we are actively pursuing an agenda that connects our customers to the opportunities wherever they may be.

HSBC's heritage is more than 150 years in the making – and with it comes an unrivalled understanding of the workings of the Asian market in particular. Innovation is now driving the future of trade across all sectors, whether in the field of automation and AI, or fintech and sustainable energy sources.

March also sees the HSBC Innovation Exchange taking place in Hong Kong, where companies are taking the opportunity to explore the remarkable economic development taking place both in the SAR and mainland China's Pearl River Delta.
