INDEPENDENCE DAY 2018
The India Association Hong Kong (“the Association”) is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization with a commitment to preserve and celebrate our heritage as well as to promote and integrate our community in Hong Kong. This ongoing commitment is made evident by the cultural and social functions organized annually, community outreach and working with the Hong Kong Government on policy issues.
The Association hosts a number of social functions each year bringing Indian singers, dancers and stage performers from India to Hong Kong. Indian Independence Day has also been celebrated with great éclat annually. Preserving traditional festivals is an important way of retaining our cultural identity.
Through its sub-committees, the Association works amongst the broader Hong Kong community to enhance and promote the Indian identity and to ensure our community is properly integrated into Hong Kong society. The Association awards scholarships to local Hong Kong residents, gives recognition to public servants who have served the community selflessly, enhances the communal inter-community ties amongst the various Hong Kong ethnic groups and works with Government bureaus on matters of importance to the ethnic minority communities.
