Mission & History



History of the HKMA

The Hong Kong Management Association is a non-profit-making organisation which aims to be the leading professional organisation advancing management excellence in Hong Kong and the Region. Early in 1960, a delegation of six from Hong Kong, headed by the Honourable Sir Sik-nin Chau, attended the 12th International Congress of Scientific Management held in Australia. The delegation returned with the conviction that Hong Kong, having achieved an industrial revolution of some note, must keep abreast of management theory and application developing throughout the world. The idea, thus conceived and with the encouragement of the Hong Kong Government, led to the incorporation of the Association on 22 November 1960.
