2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover from the United Kingdom to the People’s Republic of China. Over the last two decades, Hong Kong and Canada have strengthened both cultural and economic ties; Hong Kong is host to Canada’s largest expat community and ranks as Canada’s 8th principal export market.

Looking ahead at the next 20 years, the 2017 HKCBA National Conference will:

  • Delve into past, present and future developments in Hong Kong-Canada relations
  • Craft a dialogue on sector specific trends in Hong Kong-Canada and China-Canada economic developments
  • Share insights from Canadian companies on how they took advantage of the Hong Kong gateway to China, Asia and the rest of the world
  • Support budding Canadian entrepreneurs in getting their product to market through our National Investment Pitch Competition

The first 100 participants registered before May 5th are invited to attend the “Gala celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) in Vancouver” on the evening of June 2nd at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel.  The Gala is the official celebration event hosted by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto), the official representative of the HKSAR Government in Canada, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR.  The event is by invitation only and will be attended by government representatives, business and community leaders, and professionals from the Greater Vancouver area.
