About The 29th World Hakka Conference

The 29th World Hakka Conference will be held in Hong Kong during October 12-15, 2017. 2017 is a meaningful year for both Hong Kong and the World Hakka Conference. Not only it is the year of Hong Kong’s 20th Anniversary of return to motherland, but also the World Hakka Conference has finally returned to Hong Kong, where it was originally initiated since 1971.

With China Overseas Exchange Association, All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese, Community Relations Department of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR, Home Affairs Bureau of the Government of the HKSAR, Meizhou Government, Guangdong Overseas Friendship Association and Fujian Overseas Friendship Association as the supporting organizations, the 29th World Hakka Conference will be held by Hong Kong Meizhou Association.

Hong Kong, a world city where the cultures of the East and West meets, is a thriving arts and cultural hub. The history of Hakkas in Hong Kong dates back to more than 200 years ago, and now the Hakkas still remain a large minority in Hong Kong, making this city a fascinating place to encounter living and dynamic Hakka culture.

We sincerely invite you to attend the various activities such as the ‘Sailing Out Over the Sea’ - Multi-media Show, Hakka Cup Horse Racing, Hakka Cultural Forum, World Hakka Youth Summit etc.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Hong Kong!
