Deloitte Hong Kong 50th Anniversary Celebration

Published: 9 December 2022

Deloitte Hong Kong has voyaged through a half-century journey in the blink of an eye. On 8th December, 2022, Deloitte Hong Kong hosted its golden jubilee at JW Marriott Hotel with many distinguished guests to celebrate its 50th anniversary milestone.

We were extremely honored to have the honorable Hong Kong SAR Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu and over 200 distinguished guests, including government officials, key industry clients and personnel, media partners, along with Deloitte China Chair Vivian Jiang, Deloitte China CEO Patrick Tsang, Deloitte China Southern Region Managing Partner Edward Au, Deloitte Global Vice Chair and Asia Pacific Chair Dennis Chow, and other partners gathered together to commemorate the firm's 50th anniversary in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong SAR Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu
"This is a special evening. A welcome opportunity to pay tribute to a company that, for half a century now, has been a significant contributor to Hong Kong, to our economy, and to our good name internationally. That company is Deloitte Hong Kong, and I'm pleased to congratulate you on your golden jubilee anniversary. Ladies and gentlemen, 50 years of ever-growing business success is a note-worthy accomplishment. Deloitte has managed that, and more, thanks to its corporate culture shaped by inspiring innovation and growth initiatives. Keep it up, Deloitte, for your future, for all our futures. Thank you."

Deloitte China CEO Patrick Tsang: "Hong Kong is where Deloitte China laid the foundation for its success. Today, it continues to be a critical market in a global environment. Our achievements would not be possible without the valued trust and support from our clients, business associates, alumni and colleagues, to whom I express my heartfelt appreciation. It has been a truly extraordinary journey – 50 years ago, we established as an accounting firm with a team of 30 focusing solely on auditing and tax services. Today, we are a multidisciplinary professional services firm with more than 3,000 professionals and digital capabilities. What remains unchanged is our commitment to social responsibility and to contributing to the equity and social harmony in Hong Kong."

Guests of honor presided over the lighting ceremony to witness the 50th anniversary of Deloitte Hong Kong and stepping into its next new chapter.

Deloitte China Chair Vivian Jiang: "Deloitte has had a presence in China for more than 100 years. Since the establishment of the Hong Kong office in 1972, we have embraced breakthroughs in our size and business through a series of strategic initiatives. In 1997, Kwan Wong Tan & Fong, the largest Chinese firm of Certified Public Accountants in Hong Kong, merged with our Hong Kong office, enabling our efforts in boosting the economic development of Hong Kong and the Chinese Mainland."

Deloitte China Southern Region Managing Partner Edward Au: "To better serve Hong Kong and its integration into the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Deloitte launched the INspire HK strategic initiative this year, with investment of HKD1 billion over the next three years to advance our Hong Kong practice and double the number of our future-ready talent. Embarking on our next phase of development, we look forward to many more years of making an impact for our clients and society and sharing our vision with diverse stakeholders towards a better future, riding development trends in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area."

The "Deloitte Hong Kong Development Journey" video perfectly illustrated the growth of our organization in this city over the past 50 years. We've scaled from a 30-person accounting firm focusing on audit and tax to a multifaceted, comprehensive, digitally capable professional service organization with over 3,000 members. Throughout this half-century journey, we've been through plenty of ups and downs, but our perseverance, professionalism, innovation, and most importantly, our legacy, remains unwavering and unchanged.

From 1972 to 2022, we've been through plenty of ups and downs, but our perseverance, professionalism, innovation, and heritage remain unwavering and unchanged. We were able to relive and witness some of our unforgettable moments through the interviews of some ex-Deloitte colleagues that was played during the ceremony. The firm arranged a half-month exhibition in the lobby of JW Marriott Hotel to highlight the transformation of Deloitte Hong Kong over the past 50 years.


Deloitte Hong Kong's 50 years of history symbolizes the beginning of a new era, the embarkment of a new journey. We are proud of our past accomplishments, and we are ready to achieve even greater milestones. Here's to a brighter future for all!
