More than 500 members celebrated the arrival of the Year of the Dog on 13 March at the Chamber’s annual Chinese New Year Dinner. Chief Secretary for Administration Matthew Cheung; Qiu Hong, Deputy Minister of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the HKSAR; and Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Edward Yau joined Chamber Chairman Stephen Ng to perform the lion eye-dotting ceremony before the lion dance to welcome the new year.
The annual dinner is one of the highlights of the Chamber’s social calendar, and members and guests enjoyed a packed programme of lively performances and games. These included a kung fu demonstration by local children, a dance performance from members of the Youth Outreach School and several songs from local pop star Ryan Hui.
Members also took part in the Grand Lucky Draw, which featured more than 60 fantastic prizes sponsored by member companies, with a top prize of two business class round-trip tickets from Hong Kong to Tokyo sponsored by Cathay Pacific Airways.
The Chamber would like to thank Galaxy Fire Services, Harilela Hotels, Heng Yue Yen Long Kwon Kung Fu, Moore Stephens CPA and RM Group Holdings as the event sponsors. We would also like to extend our appreciation to all of our generous prize sponsors, and to our members for making the evening such a fun and memorable occasion.
