EXCLUSIVE FEATURE: Hong Kong set to become a centre for aviation leasing and finance

Hong Kong’s Economic Development Commission’s Transport Working Group has been quietly chiseling out an exacting blueprint for Hong Kong future competitiveness in the global aerospace financing sector.

Dewey Yee, a member of the Commission’s Working Group on Transportation and head of the Aerospace Finance Focus Group, is diligently developing very specific, in-depth and wide reaching policy measures that are purposely aimed at building Hong Kong into a global aerospace finance hub, as a means to keep its competitive edge as a world financial centre.

He has made it his personal mission to design and implement the necessary government policies and measures enabling Hong Kong to capitalise and capture a significant global share of the aerospace financing, leasing and capital market investments.  And, more importantly, he now has the backing of Hong Kong’s Chief Executive CY Leung to make it happen.

Read more about Dewey’s progress and plans for the development of Hong Kong into a centre for aviation finance and leasing by scrolling down to the APAC Regulatory section of this newsletter. An updated and extended version of this feature will be included in the forthcoming Airline Economics Issue 21 (subscribe at www.aviationnews-online.com/airline-economics).
