On October 17, 2013 the HKCCA held its 10th anniversary conference at the HKUST conference centre in the Hong Kong Club Building. With a new venue and a new full day format the conference was enthusiastically received by the members that attended. Starting with the keynote speech by now semi-retired Justice Kemal Bokhary, the conference moved on to a session on prevention of corruption, presented by Control Risks. Then on to politics with a lively debate between Dennis Kwok, Martin Lee and Regina Ip on the future of the rule of law and, of course, democracy. After lunch our new format split the conference into parallel sessions. One stream, hosted by David Polk, discussed banking and other regulatory matters. In the other stream Herbert Smith Freehills hosted a discussion on legal privilege, and then Hogan Lovells presented on social media. Finally, the conference came together to hear the collective wisdom of a group of eminent general counsel on how the GC role has changed over the last few years and where it is going. After the conference there was a cocktail reception at Dot Cod enjoyed by all who made it there.
