NATIONAL PATRON

The Honorable Sir Laurence Street AC KCMG QC

The dramatic growth over the last half century in the dynamic two-way flow of commerce between Hong Kong and Australia marks an inspiring achievement of co-operation and promotion by business and Government on both sides. The HKABA fills a pivotal role in this two-way flow. In spreading awareness of the business opportunities in each country, and providing promotional guidance and support, it has contributed significantly in maximizing the economic benefit to both countries. I have been privileged to play some part in the professional aspects of this commerce and have seen at first hand the benefit of the HKABA’s work. I am proud to have been invited to participate as its Patron and I look forward to assisting in promoting its important and exciting activities in the future.

Sir Laurence is a Companion of the Order of Australia, a Knight Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George, a Knight of St John and a Grand Officer of Merit of the Order of Malta. He is an Honours Graduate in Law from Sydney University and has three Honorary Doctorates in Law and an Honorary Doctorate in Economics from Australian Universities. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (UK), an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators Australia and a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
