Benjamin Chau - Deputy Executive Director

Benjamin Chau

Benjamin Chau Kai-Leung is a Deputy Executive Director of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the statutory organisation responsible for promoting Hong Kong's external trade.

Mr Chau was a banker before joining the HKTDC in 1984. In a career spanning more than 25 years, he has been involved in a great variety of trade promotion activities, specialising in China trade promotion. He worked in the HKTDC's Beijing and Shanghai branch offices from 1986 to 1988, and has organised numerous Hong Kong pavilions and exhibitions on the Chinese mainland.

Mr Chau led the HKTDC's Exhibitions and Exhibition Services divisions from 1997 until mid-2007, building the HKTDC's fair portfolio to 31 annual exhibitions. Under his leadership, eight HKTDC trade fairs are now the largest of their kind in Asia and three have become the world's largest.

In 2004, Mr Chau was also appointed to head the HKTDC's Trade Publications Department, which publishes 14 trade magazines and more than 30 supplements a year. In 2006, the E-Commerce Department was added to his portfolio, to better integrate the HKTDC's exhibitions, publications and online marketplace.

From 2007 to 2009, Mr Chau oversaw both the Product Promotion and Service Promotion Divisions, spearheading the HKTDC's manufacturing and service industries' promotions on the mainland and overseas. The extensive programme includes more than 200 projects a year designed to enhance Hong Kong's role as Asia's leading sourcing centre and to help Hong Kong companies tap into business opportunities around the world. During this period, Mr Chau also oversaw the HKTDC's Design Gallery. With four retail outlets, including one in Beijing, Design Gallery promotes Hong Kong designers and creative excellence in product design.

Mr Chau assumed the office of Deputy Executive Director on 4 January 2010.
