From July 9 – 12, the US-Asia Institute was honored to help host the Better Hong Kong Foundation’s annual visit to the United States. The Better Hong Kong Foundation (BHKF) is a privately-funded, non-profit organization formed by influential Hong Kong business and community leaders in 1995. BHKF’s intention is to build greater international understanding between East and West by facilitating communications between Hong Kong, China, and the global community.

Every year, a delegation from BHKF visits the U.S. to promote closer ties between the United States and Hong Kong, as well as to inform U.S. leaders of the current situation in East Asia.

This year’s delegation visited Washington, D.C. and New York City to meet with elected officials, diplomats, the leadership of business organizations, luminaries representing premier think tanks, and editors and reporters at media outlets focused on international relations, politics and economic issues.

We thank the Better Hong Kong Foundation for their continued relationship with the US-Asia Institute and dedication to US-Hong Kong partnerships. USAI also thanks participating organizations for their time and availability to meet with BHKF. We look forward to this partnership continuing in years to come!
