Study Trip to Shanghai on 11 - 15/16 June 2010

26 April 2010

Dear Friends,

The long-awaited Shanghai World Expo will open on 1 May 2010 ! We are certain many of you are keen to partake in this ‘grand gathering of world cultures’ and experience the new living concepts exhibited in the pavilions. Taking this golden opportunity, the Accounting Resources Centre, joined by eleven other accountancy bodies (list attached), is organizing a study trip to Shanghai during the period 11-15 June 2010. The delegation will be led by me, in my capacity as the Legislative Councillor representing the Accountancy Constituency. We cordially invite you to join our delegation.

The itinerary of the study trip, yet to be finalized, will include the following:

1. 2 or 3 days’ visit to the spectacular pavilions in the World Expo site in Shanghai, with specially arranged guided tour of the pavilion of China and Hong Kong (hopefully also the Expo Centre).

2. Meetings with finance and taxation officials as well as officials from the Shanghai Institute of Certified Public Accountants (SICPA).

3. Networking activities with our counterparts in Shanghai.

4. Networking activities with members of some co-organizing bodies residing/working in Shanghai (river cruise along Huangpu River).

As the Shanghai authorities have designated 12 -13 June (Sat and Sun) as working days and 14-16 June (Mon-Wed) as public holidays, we therefore plan to leave Hong Kong in the evening of 11 June (Fri) so that our official program may commence on 12 June.

To cater for those who wish to stay longer in Shanghai, we will provide two options for group air-tickets, the first group leaving Shanghai on 15 June and the second group on 16 June. If our group schedules do not suit your needs, you may buy your own air-tickets or ask our travel agent for assistance (Mr. Tatco Ng of China Travel Services; tel. 2853-9277; email:

To facilitate our administrative arrangements, we should be grateful if you could fill out the attached reply form and send it together with a cheque for the appropriate fee to Accounting Resources Centre (address: Room 1701, 17/F, 111 Leighton Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong) on or before 14 May 2010 (Fri). The cheque should be made payable to “Accounting Development Foundation Limited”.

We look forward to hearing from you soon. If you have any questions, please contact us at

Yours sincerely,

Paul M P Chan
