The major focus is to explore how the green finance in Hong Kong may further its contributions to the vision of the ‘Green Belt and Road’, and in the process enhance its own sustainability and benefit the broader development of Hong Kong community and the Region.

The aim of this new research group is two-folded: firstly, to study the development of Islamic Finance in Hong Kong and how it could contribute to the Belt and Road Initiative (B&R); secondly, to investigate on the potential for ethnic minorities in Hong Kong to participate in Islamic Finance. More specifically, we will look at Islamic bonds and securities (market and risk), corporate governance and cultural aspects of Islamic Finance.
