During the Dialogue, Ms. Cheryl Wilson, former Head of Tourism & Hospitality, InvestHK and Ms. Rowena Hoy, former Head of Consumer Products, InvestHK were invited to shed light on their expertise in business strategic planning and communication and their work experience in the HKSAR Government’s investment promotion department.
