Annual IHKBF Mission to Hong Kong (13 -18 January 2019)


The Ireland Hong Kong Business Forum is pleased to announce expressions of interest for the annual mission to Hong Kong (13-18 January 2019) as now open. This year marks the first time a direct flight from Dublin to Hong Kong is in operation, which makes the prospect of long distance travelling less daunting for delegates. Increased connectivity between Hong Kong and Ireland will mean the opportunities that exist in Hong Kong, the Pearl River Basin and indeed in Asia are set to increase exponentially. 


Last year, 22 representatives from Irish companies and semi state bodies travelled to Hong Kong on this mission which included high level networking events organised by  and one-to-one meetings with companies based in Hong Kong. As part of the mission, Hong Kong Trade and Development Council (HKTDC) provided dedicated advisory services and tailored B2B matchmaking services. Delegates were also given the option of a day trip to visit either Shenzhen or Macau, depending on their sector of interest.
