    No Time to Waste - Call to Action Summit
    InterCham Panel Discussion | Thur 24 May

    The statistics have illustrated the seriousness of the plastic waste problem. For example, 5.2 million plastic bottles are discarded every day in Hong Kong (almost 2 billion bottles per year). It has become apparent that Hong Kong also takes on a certain amount of responsibility in this major global issue.

    Join our friends at Swedish Chamber in this meaningful seminar to discuss the current situation and possible solutions of plastic waste with the panelists from different sectors in the business community, as well as representatives from the Hong Kong Government.
