London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the creation of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region at London’s Regatta Centre on Sunday 25th June 2017.
The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, London (HKETO, London) is the official representation of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government in nine countries, namely Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden, Russia and the United Kingdom. Its mission is to promote and strengthen Hong Kong's economic, trade and cultural links with these countries.
Priscilla To, Director General of the HKETO said:
"Hong Kong held the first international dragon boat festival three decades ago, and since then it has developed into a truly global event. We at the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London are delighted to be supporting the 2017 London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival, especially as this year is the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region”.
“Celebrating this traditional festival is part of Hong Kong’s lifestyle, and in taking part in this festival we join with many other dragon boat festivals taking place around the world, wherever there is a Hong Kong community”.
