The Wall Street Journal Asia and mega law firm, O’Melveny & Myers (with a very strong China presence), are putting on what is looking to be a top level conference on China’s financial markets. The conference is set for November 13th in Hong Kong (China’s de facto financial capital) at the Hong Kong Grand Hyatt (a great hotel with amazing views!). For registration, click here [link no longer exists]. The cost is $1000, but there is a 20% discount for Wall Street Journal subscribers and since one can get such a subscription for less than $200, it would certainly make sense to do so. There are also various other discounts, including a 10% early bird discount, but it is not clear whether they are cumulative.

The topics will include the following:

  • Commercial Banking in China
  • China and World Capital Markets
  • China Domestic Capital Markets
  • Cross-border M&A
  • Doing Business in China today
  • China’s RMB & Foreign Currency Issues

The depth and breadth of the speakers makes me confident this will be an excellent conference.
