Experiences of companies
The line up of speakers from the Netherlands, China and Hong Kong at the free seminar, will speak about the way their company is changing so that it can meet the demands of the Circular Economy and what China’s “Greater Bay Initiative” is and will mean for the world.

In a circular economy, waste generation is minimised, and the value of products, materials and resources is maintained for as long as possible. It’s a new economic model that offers tremendous opportunities. It helps save natural resources, combats climate change, makes production, consumption and waste management more sustainable, and it creates green, local jobs.

With the Greater Bay Area in China, comprising Hong Kong, Macau and cities in Guangdong Province, a region is created with an economic importance that can be compared with the San Francisco Bay Area, Greater New York and the Greater Tokyo Area.
