The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Washington, D.C., was established in 1987, largely in response to draft legislation affecting Hong Kong's textiles and garment quota before Congress.
The office continues to have an active role on congressional issues likely to affect the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
The office also maintains close working relations with the U.S. administration, including the Department of State, Department of Commerce, Department of Treasury, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and Department of Justice.
The issues being dealt with include intellectual property rights, strategic trade control, World Trade Organization, APEC, trade promotion, investment protection and financial issues.
The office also has a public relations function to explain Hong Kong developments and promote Hong Kong culture. We issue an electronic newsletter called "The Circle" to keep our friends in Washington, D.C. up-to-date on Hong Kong news.
Do not hesitate to contact any of us for information about Hong Kong – its business environment, its position on economic and trade issues, etc.
For media inquiries, please contact our Senior Information Officer, Mr. Daniel McAtee.
