    Panel Discussion
    Risk Mitigation in Infrastructure Financing

    Sustainable Finance has attracted growing attention in infrastructure development given its beneficial impact to the investors, financiers, project owners and the project location. This has been given further impetus by the participation of various economies in the Paris Agreement as well as the commitment of different countries and organisations in promoting an open, green and clean Belt and Road cooperation. With IFFO being an active player in facilitating infrastructure investments and financing, IFFO has recently advanced in setting up the Centre for Green Finance (CGF) to further promote green finance through acting as the focal point for capacity building and experience sharing as well as a depositary for knowledge and expertise. The panel, comprising both public and private stakeholders, will look into the business case of adopting sustainable finance in infrastructure projects and share insights on the latest industry trends and offerings in this aspect.

    • Mr Darryl Chan, JP, Executive Director (External), Hong Kong Monetary Authority; Deputy Director, HKMA Infrastructure Financing Facilitation Office (IFFO)
