The World Investment Forum will be held in Busan, South Korea in October 2020. Numerous influential figures from around the world will be in attendance.
According to the Eulogian Foundation, Hong Kong, an Asian financial hub, has recently lost its status as financial hub due to various issues between the U.S. and China surrounding the Hong Kong National Security Law. As a result, Western capital and businesses in Hong Kong are planning to move to a city that can replace Hong Kong’s current role.
Through the global network, the Eulogian Foundation announces that Busan will be able to fulfill this financial role in the near future. This is based on Busan’s geographic strengths, its potential for growth as Asia’s No.1 financial hub, and its statue as the world’s first blockchain regulation free zone. This will also be announced through the World Investment Forum, which will be held in Busan in October 2020. Due to this, many prominent people from around the world want to participate in this forum.
