Norman Chan's Biography

Dr Norman Chan has been at the forefront of shaping Hong Kong's dynamic financial landscape. Best known for his tenure as CEO of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and his work on facilitating broader capital flows, Chan is a key figure in determining the region's economic trajectory.

From 2009 to 2019, Chan steered the HKMA through turbulent economic waters. He spearheaded several major financial policies and initiatives including the development of Hong Kong’s financial infrastructure, the introduction of renminbi banking services in the SAR and further financial co-operation among central banks in the Asian region.

His tenure was marked by a commitment to stability and innovation that maintained Hong Kong's position as a global financial centre. It earned Chan widespread acclaim within both financial and political circles. A driving force behind Greater Bay Area integration, Norman Chan championed initiatives aimed at fostering collaboration and connectivity among the region's diverse economic hubs.
