Speech by the 4th President
President of 4th General Committee
It is amazing that HKGMA has been established for 10 years. I am so pleased to be here to share the joy of tonight’s inauguration ceremony of 2015.
I am particularly grateful to our honorary life founding president Mr. Wong Tat Wah for his brilliant leadership.His strong leadership is crucial to me as a newly appointed president of the General Committee. My goals,as the president, are mainly to further enhance the positive image of our association, and to continue making a mutually-beneficial and helpful atmosphere for all of us to co-operate. I believe, by achieving these two goals, it could lead to visible positive changes and positive effects on sustaining a vibrant and business-friendly environment.
There is an old saying “It is even more difficult to maintain a business, let alone start it up.” That’s why we are so aware of the importance of being long-sighted, and the importance of prioritizing the use of upgraded and better technologies. These two things help is grow and prosper in a highly competitive market.
Facing the fierce competitions from mainland china gemstone factories which have low production costs, we,as the leading gemstone manufacturers in Hong Kong, are determined to maintain and reinforce our reputation of great flexibility and strong spirit of hard work.
Since the set-up of HKGMA, it has made notable achievements in so many areas to help us face up to the challenges. For instance, exploring potential markets all around the world; improving product qualities and design novelties.
The HKGMA will continue to enhance the interface and foster communications among Hong Kong, China and the four regions. We will also thrash out the implementation of the best ways to boost the industry development.
Lastly, I wish continued prosperity and the best of luck to the HKGMA and to everybody here.
