Riding on the success of the series’ two previous events, the third seminar was held on 18 August under the theme “Restatement of Hong Kong contract law on Misrepresentation, Non-Disclosure and Mistake”. Mr. C. M. Chan, then-Vice-President and Chairman of the Greater China Legal Affairs Committee delivered an opening speech at the event and shared his views on how Hong Kong's contract law keeps pace with the times and its advantages in the international arena.
