Director’s Message

I was appointed as the AIIFL Director on 1 July 2015 taking over from Professor Say Goo. AIIFL continues to pursue institutional collaboration in research and related activities on the following areas:

  • Competition/Antitrust
  • Corporate Law and Governance
  • Economic Law and Policy
  • Financial Law and Regulation
  • Insolvency and Restructuring
  • Insurance Law Group
  • “One-Belt-One-Road”
  • Real Estate Law and Finance

AIIFL established a new Research group “One-Belt-One-Road” led by Professor Say Goo in November 2015, which held its first event in April 2016 namely The Fourth Cross Strait Financial Law Forum on One Belt One Road and the Opportunities and Challenges for Financial Law. Most of the speakers came from Mainland China and Taiwan were funded by the China Affairs Office.

An Inaugural Lecture of the AIIFL-Companies Registry Corporate Law and Governance Distinguished Lecture Series was held in February 2016; delivered by Nobel Laureate Professor Eric Maskin of Harvard University. Ms Ada Chung JP, Registrar of the Companies, and Professor Michael Hor, Dean of the Faculty of Law, gave the opening remarks at the Lecture. The Lecture was funded by the Companies Registry, HKSAR. AIIFL also held a wide range of other events including conferences, public lectures and seminars as well as training courses in 2015-2016, more information can be found in the “Events” section.

We look forward to your continued support and would welcome any comments or suggestions regarding the Institute and/or its activities at any time.
