"Avenue of Stars," this year's annual dinner theme, featured singing and dancing as 450 guests ate, drank and made merry with their fellow CPAs. The chair of the organising committee, Ms. Susanna Chiu, says the dinner was oversubscribed given the limited space at the new Four Seasons Hotel. More than 60 official guests attended, including the Institute's past presidents, LegCo President Rita Fan, Central People's
in the HKSAR Liaison Office Deputy Director Li Gang,
and FSTB Secretary Frederick Ma. The guest of honour, Mr. Liu Zhongli, president of the Chinese Institute of CPAs and the former Minister of Finance for the PRC, spoke about the growing ties between the two Institutes and the progress of the profession on the Mainland. We also welcomed Mr. Chen Yugui, secretary general of the CICPA.
