About the Hong Kong Business Network

Asia-style networking in the UK

Business networking in Asia has always had a social feel to it. Ex-pats mostly congregate together with other international-minded locals and it is through such interactions that strong global and local business ties are forged.

 

The HKBN aims to provide a platform across the UK as well as in London for members to explore their shared interest in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area, whether to meet other like-minded professionals, to raise the profile of their business, to connect with future mentors or future NEDs for their own businesses or simply to increase their knowledge of the broader business environment.
