Savantas Policy Institute as research partner has collaborated with the Center for Entrepreneurship (CfE) of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), Hong Kong University, Hong Kong Baptist University, and the Shenzhen Academy of Social Sciences and published the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) 2016 Hong Kong & Shenzhen Report. The last GEM report focused on Hong Kong and Shenzhen was published in 2009, when circumstances for entrepreneurs in both cities were vastly different. Savantas Policy Director Institute Ms Germaine Lau attended the presentation seminar held on 16th February 2017.
GEM’s annual reports are widely recognized as the most authoritative international poll of entrepreneurship in the world. Its indicators are often cited along other prominent indexes, such as the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index, the Political Stability Index, or the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Index. GEM results are used in academic research and by government and business leaders to devise effective policies for boosting creativity, knowledge transfer, and economic activity. This is the sixth time that we have taken part in GEM. This year, the study has been conducted in 66 economies worldwide.
