The association’s committee arranges regular lunches with politicians, civil servants, businessmen and the media, at which matters affecting Hong Kong are discussed informally.  Lunches and other gatherings are held for the wider membership, at which prominent guests from Hong Kong are invited to speak. These gatherings are excellent opportunities for those with interests in Hong Kong to meet and keep up to date. The association also arranges informal dinners at the House of Commons with members of all three parties in both houses of parliament.
