Details :

If Government's current plans bear fruit, Hong Kong's security of payment legislation will come into force in 2015 or 2016 following a consultation process due to begin over the coming months. Security of payment legislation in other countries has followed a number of different models and how far-reaching it will be in Hong Kong is not yet clear. Whatever its final form it will have a major impact on the Hong Kong construction industry.

This seminar will review the experience of other countries and examine the likely options for Hong Kong.
