From The TTALK Quotes 

HONG KONG AND THE RIGHT TO BE CONCERNED

“If it – [Mainland China] – can walk away with impunity [from] its international treaty obligations to Hong Kong, then, I think, the rest of the world should be worried about its commitment to its other international treaty obligations.”

Anson Chan
former Chief Secretary of Hong Kong
February 2, 2018

Note to Visitors

This is but the start of a reconstruction and enhancement of the Global Business Dialogue website, www.gbdinc.org.  In a sense, it is premature to put it on line now.  We are doing it because we want everyone who is interested to have access to the three things this page contains: i)  a statement of what GBD is, ii) information on the next GBD event, and iii) the start of the most recent TTALK Quote.
