Established in 1987, the Hong Kong Association of New York, Inc. is a 501(c) (6) non-profit organization.

The Association affords opportunities for its members to network and strengthen business contacts. It organizes regular events such as breakfasts, luncheons and after-work meetings and networking events to enable members and their guests to interact with distinguished business people and senior government officials from both Hong Kong and the U.S. who share information and their perspectives on timely issues of importance related to Hong Kong, China and the Asia Pacific Region.
