Thank you to Edward Stokes, well known photographer and founder of The Photographic Heritage Foundation, for giving us a guided tour of a fascinating exhibition of photos showing Hong Kong’s Recovery, Resilience and Resurgence from the 1940s to ‘70s, at the Asia Society.

We saw life in Hong Kong through the eyes of three pioneering photographers -- Hedda Morrison, Lee Fook Chee, and Brian Brake. The photographs they took show Hong Kong during some very challenging times for the city as well as the true-grit spirit of its people which shaped Hong Kong’s world-renowned entrepreneurial and can-do spirit. Do to huge interest, the exhibition has been extended until 31 July. More details here

Exploring Opportunities for Cooperation with Québec, Canada

Anthony Cote, Director of the Quebec Office in Hong Kong, and his colleague Commercial Officer Florence Lin visited the Chamber on 29 June, where they were received by the Chamber’s Business Policy Director Simon Ngan and PR & Programs Director Malcolm Ainsworth.

Cote explained that, since earlier this year, the Quebec Office in Hong Kong has shifted its priority away from attracting immigrants to the Canadian city, to focus more on exploring the business opportunities for Quebec. The key areas of focus include green building, leisure industry, consumer goods, agricultural products and IT solutions. Both sides discussed possible ways to collaborate in the future, including meetings, webinars, business matching and missions, that would be mutually beneficial for Quebec businesses and Chamber members.
