Chairman’s Message

Welcome to the homepage of Federation of Hong Kong Business Associations Worldwide (the Federation)!

Since the formation in 2000, the Federation has spared no effort in promoting closer business links between Hong Kong and the world, and the Federation now represents 47 associations in 36 countries and regions across the globe with a strong network of around 11,000 members. 

The pandemic has disrupted the global economy and business landscapes, creating new challenges across industries.  Under these challenging circumstances, Hong Kong remains resilient, and leveraging the city’s strengths in robust business environment and new drivers of innovation-led development,  businesses, entrepreneurs and professionals here can look forward to huge and promising business opportunities through Hong Kong, especially in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA).

The opportunities are not confined in GBA, and they are also arising from the emerging trends of innovation and sustainability, together with the agreement of Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) which comprising 15 Asia-Pacific member countries, Mainland China included.  RCEP covers approximately 30 per cent of the world’s population and global gross domestic product and represents a main pivot of the global economy in the years to come.

Facing this challenging moment, we, as ambassadors of global partnership using the Hong Kong  platform, are determined to connect and support global businesses to partner with Hong Kong and lead the way forward for a more sustainable global economy. 

As our signature event, Hong Kong Forum takes place in the city every year to keep members updated on the latest developments and opportunities in the region.  Year-round communications and exchanges among members are facilitated using the online networking platform on this website.  If you are not yet a member of the Federation, you are most welcome to join this big Hong Kong family and connect with us.

I look forward to working with you and hope that you could render your support and contribution to the Federation of Hong Kong Business Associations Worldwide.
