What we do
Mission: The Hong Kong Association’s mission is to act as the champion in the UK for the long-standing and special business and trading relationship between the Hong Kong SAR and the United Kingdom.
What we do:
We hold regular meetings of the Committee, of groups of members with particular interests and of the Association as a whole.
The Association’s Committee arranges regular lunches with politicians, civil servants, policy-makers and businessmen, at which matters affecting Hong Kong are discussed informally.
Three to four lunches are held for the wider membership, at which prominent guests from Hong Kong or HK-UK business leaders are invited to speak. These gatherings are excellent opportunities for those with interests in Hong Kong to meet and keep up to date.
We act as a recognised conduit of business-related information for members about Hong Kong.
The Association also organises one to three seminars per year involving panels of experts which focus on issues of particular interest to the HK-UK partnership.
We support the visits of official representatives from Hong Kong by providing a focus for interested organisations in the UK.
The Association is usually the first non-governmental organisation contacted by visiting officials and representatives.
We provide information, expertise and support for any parliamentary activity relevant to the mission.
The Committee hosts lunches or dinners with political leaders, parliamentarians and officials and organise at least one dinner per year with the All Party Parliamentary China Group.
We act as an advocacy group, as a source of senior and well informed advice on relevant aspects of Hong Kong-related business.
We promote in every other way, which is within its scope, the interests of HK-UK exchange by personal discreet contact and information flow.
We provide support to the Hong Kong Society and the HKS Business Network in its business, social and cultural activities.
