Chamber's Advocacy Priorities

AmCham’s advocacy supports members and the broader international business community to voice concerns and to provide suggestions to keep Hong Kong's attractiveness to regional and international businesses through researched position papers, closed-door roundtables with senior government officials, submissions for public consultations, and engagement with the press and social media (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn).

Committee Advocacy

The 24 Committees at AmCham form the core of the Chamber's advocacy efforts. With guidance from the Board of Governors, Committee leaders contribute to build a solid advocative position for the Chamber through a variety of events and activities. These activities, such as premium events, networking events, or delegations, expose our members to top tier professionals and exclusive dialogue with government officials in the region, adding great value and foresight to their business portfolios and strategies.
