October 2020

Mr Philip Wong, our Co-Managing Partner and Head of Commercial Department attended a signature event of Meritas Week 2020, a webinar panel discussion titled “Deal Making in a Pandemic: An update from Asia” at 9:00 am on 22 October 2020 (Hong Kong Time).

Asia was the first region that had to contend with the coronavirus outbreak and the impact of lockdown measures on the economy and on M&A activity, yet the drop in both value and volume of deal activities in Asia was far less steep than that of the global. In light of the aforesaid, Meritas organised this panel discussion and invited panelists from various Asian countries, including China, India, South Korea, Japan, Philippines and Singapore to share their views on M&A activity in Asia after the coronavirus outbreak, in particular, the investment opportunities that still exist in Asia, and which sectors in Asia will see the greatest level of activity.
