For the past few years, MAYCHAM has taken the lead in organising a "Lo Hei" gathering to celebrate the arrival of the Spring Festival of the year with the support of all the participating chambers, making it a significant and successful event that members looked forward to every year. However, due to the unfortunate COVID-19 pandemic, this has been disrupted for 2 years.
We are delighted to be announcing the resumption of this event in 2023!
For the uninitiated, "Lo Hei", in Cantonese literally translates to "tossing up good fortune", and it refers to the ritual adopted in Southeast Asia that involves a group of people gathered around a massive plate, tossing its contents while saying out auspicious phrases before eating it—it is popularly believed that the higher the toss, the better your prospects and fortune in the year ahead!
This year, in view of the 10th anniversary of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Agreement in 2022, MAYCHAM is thrilled to co-host this with chambers from the RCEP countries (Australian Chamber, Indonesian Chamber, Korean Chamber, Myanmar Chamber, New Zealand Chamber, Singapore Chamber, Thailand Business Council, Vietnam Chamber) with invitations extended to the respective Consul-Generals of all RCEP countries.
This year's "Lo Hei" Dinner is proudly sponsored by InvestHK and we are pleased to have Dr Bernard Chan, Under Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development to be our guest-of-honour and speaker.
We are also honoured to have our Special Guest-of-Honour, Commissioner Liu Guangyuan, Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China in the Hong Kong SAR to attend this event and celebrate the Year of The Rabbit with us!
