Dear AIA HK Members and Friends,
Wishing you all a Very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
Please join me in thanking Christian Low, AIA, our immediate Past President, and the Executive Committee of 2014 for their hard work throughout the last year. Although I have been a part of AIA Hong Kong since 2000, this past year was a great learning experience as I worked more closely with the entire team including our dedicated staff, AIA Hong Kong members and friends. The effort that goes on within the Chapter that results in the various initiatives, events and activities throughout the year is very inspiring to see and be a part of. It is a testament to the strength of AIA Hong Kong, the collective effort of our members and the continued support of our corporate affiliates and sponsors.
