Hong Kong’s Grade A office market is about to embark on an unprecedented growth spurt. As it is today, JLL estimates that there is provision for at least 20 million sq ft of Grade A office supply to be delivered between 2015 and 2024, with a little over half of this supply coming from government land sales. At the end of this growth spurt, the market will look and behave fundamentally differently. For occupiers, increased supply offers a myriad of opportunities to secure cost-effective offices to accommodate expansion and consolidation requirements, while the growth of the market will, for the first time, provide investors with the opportunity to acquire high quality assets in both core and emerging office locations. With the emergence of Kowloon East, rental markets will need to adjust accordingly. The days of HK$200 per sq ft monthly rentals in Central are unlikely to be coming back anytime soon. JLL remains optimistic on the growth of the city’s office market, led by increasing demand from companies originating from mainland China. While vacancy currently remains tight across the market, with only a few Grade A office buildings, such as Citibank Plaza, having availability to accommodate larger office occupiers, the completion of new supply over the next 10 years will make Hong Kong more of a tenant’s market.

During 2014 Deloitte conducted a global survey in partnership with Forbes Insights to examine attitudes to reputation risk and crisis management. The survey found that reputation risk is a top strategic business risk with 88% of respondents explicitly focusing on it as a key business challenge. The survey also found that reputation risk is driven by other business risks that must all themselves be actively managed. Topping the list of drivers of reputation risk are risks related to ethics and integrity such as fraud, bribery, and corruption. Other drivers come from security risks, including both physical and cyber, followed closely by product and service risks, such as those related to safety, health, and the environment. This seminar will explore the relationship between reputation risk and crisis management. Increasingly, companies are investing in tangible programs to improve their capabilities for detecting, mitigating, and managing reputation risk. Deloitte's experts in crisis management, scenario planning, crisis simulations, and threat monitoring will discuss the application of these methods to manage reputation risk.

In this seminar Deloitte will introduce guidance and experiences of supply chain planning from three important perspectives: risk, strategy, and taxation. Supply chain risk management involves controlling the variety of risks across third party engagement and contract management, industry regulations and labour law compliance, quality assurance, and fraud and corruption monitoring as well as business continuity planning. Supply chain strategy will set the sourcing footprint your company pursues within a dynamic regional and global economic landscape and will define your approach to lowest cost sourcing versus best value sourcing over a longer term. Supply chain tax efficiency involves internal structuring to reduce costs and the role Hong Kong can play in such planning.
