Back in 1980, Benson Pau was looking to apply for a Certificate of Origin provider from among several designated associations in town. He eventually chose HKGCC and then decided to become a member because he believed that the Chamber could provide professional and immediate support to his new business –Wings Trading (HK) Company Limited, a service-oriented and quality-conscious supplier of house wares.
Pau loves attending Chamber events as he found that the Chamber can support his business in many ways.
“The Chamber is a good platform to connect with businesspeople in different sectors to exchange views and experiences about business challenges,”Pau said.
The Chamber has played a part in Wings’sustained growth since the company became a member in 1980. In the eighties, Pau joined a business mission organized by the Chamber to explore trading opportunities in Saudi Arabia and a few other countries. The tour resulted in the establishment of his very first business in the Middle East, which then saw sustainable business growth across the EU & North America markets afterwards.
After the fruitful outcome from that Chamber trip, Pau attended Chamber-hosted training sessions which inspired him to begin conducting annual strategic planning programme for Wings which he has done ever since.
Pau has been active in the Chamber, serving as a SME Committee Member since 2000. He also represents HKGCC in the Import/Export/Wholesale Trades Training Board (IEWTB) of VTC and has been the Chairman of the board from 2010 to 2016.
Besides business, Pau is devoted to supporting society. In 1998, he and his wife established the Pau Kwong Wun Charitable Foundation, which is a registered charitable organization in Hong Kong, serving childhood cancer families in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
