Global Franchise is thrilled to announce the addition of the Hong Kong Franchise Association to its growing World Franchise Network, following the recent additions of leading authorities such as the Romanian Franchise Association.
The World Franchise Network was formed in 2020 with the mission to gather franchise associations and trade bodies all under one roof, in order to encourage and foster greater connectivity between franchising nations.
By adding the Hong Kong Franchise Association to the network, Global Franchise can work more closely with a recognized and well-respected voice of franchising in Hong Kong, strengthening our coverage of the franchise model in this fiercely in-demand region of the world.
Speaking about the partnership, Kieran McLoone, editor of Global Franchise, said: “Hong Kong is an exciting franchise market that internationally-minded professionals simply can’t afford to ignore, so this partnership with the Hong Kong Franchise Association is a true pleasure to be able to announce. We can’t wait to work closely with the association to share detailed information about Hong Kong with our audience of international franchisors and development experts.”
The Hong Kong Franchise Association was founded in 1992, under the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC), to serve the growing interest of franchising in Hong Kong. HKGCC, established in 1861, serves as a platform for the Hong Kong Franchise Association to monitor and promote the development of franchising activities in Hong Kong. The Association also keeps its members informed on potential opportunities for businesses to expand into the Greater Bay Area in Mainland China.
Isaac Lee, senior manager at the Hong Kong Franchise Association, said: “We are delighted to join this network of franchise associations, which will serve as a conducive platform for furthering the interests of franchising businesses. As the gateway to the burgeoning Greater Bay Area of Mainland China, we believe that Hong Kong will continue to play an irreplaceable role in helping businesses to enter one of the fastest-growing regions in the world, and we at the Hong Kong Franchise Association stand ready to help franchisors and franchisees alike to seize new business opportunities in this exciting market.”
As part of the partnership, Global Franchise works closely with recognized associations when covering their respective territories, sharing crucial intel and insight to ensure readers are clued up with up-to-date industry stats, regulatory updates, and more.
