Speaker Luncheon Series XV - Business Opinion Survey


Senior Manager of The Nielsen Company Mr. Alan West presented the findings of a comprehensive business opinion survey on Hong Kong Harbour to over 30 guests during the luncheon.  The survey canvassed the views of 515 Hong Kong business leaders (by telephone) and was undertaken between October and November of 2007. This survey is a follow on from HBF’s Public Opinion Survey in 2006, and is the most comprehensive and statistically-significant consultation ever held with Hong Kong business leaders on their views on the harbour.
