'European Monetary Union and Monetary Policy' is a breakfast presentation co- organised by the Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce and the German Chamber of Commerce. As the 10th anniversary of the euro nears, stock-taking of economic outcomes have pointed to remarkable achievements in price stability, discrediting early sceptics of the European Monetary Union and giving the common monetary policy high credibility. The speaker will discuss the experiences of the currency and its challenges.

'New UK Immigration Regime' is a morning seminar organised by the British Chamber of Commerce. The seminar will look at the effects of the British government's recent announcement on provisions to stop people working illegally in Britain. Companies will learn about what these changes mean, such as the implementation of a new points system for bringing overseas workers into Britain. Co-ordinated new processes for document checking and retention of records will be vital to avoid penalties and problems while hiring nationals from overseas.
