Mission

HKA LogoThe Hong Kong Association’s mission is to act as a champion in the UK for the long-standing and special business and trading relationship between the Hong Kong SAR and the United Kingdom.

Activities

To hold regular meetings of the committee, of groups of members with particular interests and of the association as a whole.

• The committee meets for working private lunches about four times a year; guests include relevant political, business and journalist contacts. These lunches serve to advance the interests of UK-HK relations and are funded by the committee members themselves.

• Some committee lunches are open to members at a senior level who have interests which are of particular relevance.

• Three or four lunches per year are organised for the whole association, involving high profile and relevant speakers.
