Introduction of Hosting Organization



The Kowloon Chamber of Commerce was first established in 1938 at No.504 Shanghai Street under the name of Mongkok Chamber of Commerce. Membership increased significantly in 1939 mainly from the commercial and private sectors in the Kowloon area. Hence, the Chamber changed its name to Kowloon Chamber of Commerce and has since been managed by an Executive Committee and supervised by a Supervisory Committee. It held its first inauguration on 28th December in the same year. Thereafter, the Chamber holds its periodical inauguration function on the same day of the year.

The Chamber resumed its activities on 12th September 1945 following the end of World War II. Operations of the Chamber grew bigger and the Chamber moved to No.122 Prince Edward Road, Kowloon and elected Mr. Robert Der as the Chairman of the Executive Committee. The Chamber finally moved to its present permanent address at No.2 Liberty Avenue, Kowloon which was acquired in 1950.


In view of the lack of education facilities after the War, the Chamber established its first English secondary school in 1951 and then a Chinese primary school and kindergarten in 1956. The site of the permanent address at No.2 Liberty Avenue was redeveloped to a 28-storeyed building to cater for expansion and development. The reconstruction work was completed in 1984.

The aims of Chamber are to unite and promote the benefit of the community and coordinate communication between local and foreign commercial sector. The Chamber enjoys good relation with business organizations and commercial concerns both in China and overseas, and to strengthen such ties, the Chamber frequently sent delegations to such organizations. The Chamber was incorporated under the Companies Ordinance in 1954 as a limited company and is a non-profitable organization.

At present, the Chamber was over 2,000 members and 41 corporate members from various industries, including: spinning, garments, electronic, plastic, toys, electrical, metal, tourism, construction, finance, insurance, transportation, jewelry, food & beverage, restaurant, watches, chemical, leather-goods, machinery, ironworks, electro-plating, shipping, furniture, decoration, timber, rattan, medical and pharmaceutical, seafood, laundry, mines, china-ware, artwork, culture, emporium, land-development and professionals including doctors, dentists, surveyors, accountants and solicitors.

九龍總商會於1938年在上海街504號以旺角總商會的名義成立。 1939 年會員人數大幅增加,主要來自九龍地區的商業和私營部門。 因此,商會更名為九龍商會,由執行委員會管理,由監事會監督。 它於同年12月28日舉行了首次就職典禮。 此後,商會在每年的同一天定期舉行就職典禮。

第二次世界大戰結束後,商會於 1945 年 9 月 12 日恢復活動。 總商會規模擴大,遷至九龍太子道122號,並推選Robert Der先生為執行委員會主席。 總商會於1950年遷至九龍自由道2號,現為永久地址。

鑑於戰後教育設施欠缺,總商會於1951年創辦第一所英文中學,並於1956年創辦華文小學及幼稚園。永久地址自由大道2號的舊址重建為28 - 高層建築,以迎合擴展和發展。 重建工作於1984年完成。

商會的宗旨是團結和促進社區利益,協調本地和外國商業部門之間的交流。 商會與國內外的商業組織和商業機構有著良好的關係,為加強這種聯繫,商會經常派代表團訪問這些組織。 本會於1954年根據《公司條例》成立為有限公司,屬非牟利機構。


目前,商會會員2000餘人,企業會員41家,來自紡織、服裝、電子、塑膠、玩具、電器、五金、旅遊、建築、金融、保險、交通、珠寶、餐飲、餐飲等行業。 、鐘錶、化工、皮具、機械、鐵器、電鍍、航運、家具、裝飾、木材、藤條、醫藥、海鮮、洗衣、礦山、瓷器、藝術品、文化、商場、土地開發 和專業人士,包括醫生、牙醫、測量師、會計師和律師。
