The Business and Professionals Alliance for Hong Kong (BPA) is three years old!
Chief Executive Mr Leung Chun-ying and Deputy Director of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the HKSAR Ms Yin Xiaojing officiated at a gala dinner organised on December 7, 2015 to celebrate the BPA’s birthday. The event, involving a total of 33 banquet tables, was attended by more than 400 guests. These included senior government officials, and leading lights from associations and chambers, statutory bodies, the professional sector, political parties, social elites, the media, as well as BPA members.
A simple but elegant celebratory and toasting ceremony was presided over by BPA leaders and officiating guests. As part of the ceremonial proceedings, wine was poured onto an ice sculpture to symbolise the infusion of new forces and positive energy into the BPA as it soars to greater heights.
BPA Chairman Mr Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen expressed his gratitude to attending guests for gracing the event with their presence. In his speech, Mr Leung said that despite its establishment three years ago, BPA was nevertheless fresh and energetic. He thanked BPA members for their generous contributions in expertise, experience, and efforts to the wider community. He also commended members for their exemplary work with the younger generation to promote greater interest and involvement in socio-economic and constitutional affairs for the benefit of Hong Kong and its citizens.
BPA Council Chairman Dr Peter Lam Kin-ngok was hopeful of brighter prospects for the BPA. He said that as the future of Hong Kong would be determined to a large extent on the outcome of the 2016 Legislative Council election, the BPA would strive for success by winning broader public support and speaking out on behalf of the business and professional communities. The BPA would also leverage on the strengths and capabilities of business and professionals to promote economic growth particularly in making constructive proposals to the HKSAR Government on seizing opportunities related to the national strategy of “One Belt, One Road”.
Artist Mr Steve Wong Ka-keung was on hand to perform a number of hit songs at the dinner. In a climactic finish to the evening’s celebrations, Chief Executive Mr Leung Chun-ying led government officials on stage in an impromptu performance of the classic hits “Glorious Days” and “Loving You”, which they sang with Mr Steve Wong and BPA leaders. Before taking the stage, the Chief Executive joked that he would do anything to improve executive-legislative relationship even if that required him to literally sing for his supper.
The BPA will continue, through great teamwork, to lay a better and stronger foundation for Hong Kong’s future generation by acting as a bridge to foster communication between the business community and the public. It will seek to do this by upholding the interests and well-being of small-and-medium enterprises, improving the prospects of the middle-class, and promoting the long-term and stable development of the economy and people’s livelihood in Hong Kong.
