Security of Payment in Hong Kong - Learning from the Asian and Australian experience

The Society of Construction Law Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Institute of Construction Adjudicators invites you to an evening webinar exploring security of payment regimes in Asia and Australia and their potential lessons for Hong Kong. As Hong Kong’s Development Bureau prepares to implement contractual security of payment provisions in public works contracts and sub-contracts, join us to hear from experienced lawyers from Australia, Malaysia and Singapore as they share their country’s experience.
