Hospitable Young Hong Kong Ambassadors
First impressions make all the difference to a tired tourist and with 23.4 million visitor arrivals forecast for 2005* the Federation's Young Ambassadors offer a very worthwhile contribution to the tourism industry. The Young Ambassador (YA) Scheme, a joint effort of the Federation and the Tourism Commission, is representative of our mission, encouraging young people to contribute to the economy with pride while developing their sense of civic responsibility.



An important knock-on effect takes place in the process - they also get the message of hospitality across to the local community. The happy result is that people of all ages have a growing sense of belonging to our vibrant, vigorous and colourful city and feel proud to welcome visitors to share it.

"We have received numerous compliments and thank-you letters from passengers around the world on their service. We look forward to an on-going partnership with the Federation in the future."

Mr. Eric Wong
General Manager, Terminal, Airport Authority

The beauty myth
The message is everywhere, on buses and hoardings, in magazines and on the TV. If you are female and fat you're out. Being thin for girls is in. Most young Hong Kong women are enviably slim yet eating disorders affect about 1% of all Asian women according to recent reports. The figures for Europe and the US are five times as high. Adverts for slimming products are often not only misleading, they are also offensive and have done nothing to reduce the rise in obesity across the globe. Click to read more...
