AmCham representatives were delighted to meet with Hanscom Smith, the newly appointed Consul General for Hong Kong and Macau, last week during the annual Washington Doorknock
AmCham welcomes the announcement of Hanscom Smith as the newly appointed Consul General to Hong Kong and Macau. Chamber representatives met with the incoming Consul General in Washington DC during the annual Doorknock, and look forward to working closely with him in support of a strong US-Hong Kong relationship when he arrives in July.
Chairman Robert Grieves said, “AmCham is delighted to welcome Consul General Smith to Hong Kong. AmCham values the great partnership with the US Consulate and we look forward to working with CG Smith to strengthen commerce and people-to-people ties between the United States and Hong Kong, and to promote Hong Kong’s free and open society and strong rule of law as a foundation for the success of American business.”
Hong Kong is a major strategic and financial hub for the Indo-Pacific region with 85,000 American citizens residing here, and Smith will bring a tremendous amount of experience and perspective to this important role from his previous foreign service posts in Shanghai, Beijing, Bangkok, and Phnom Penh.
