Dear Members,

"Social Enterprises" are gaining more significance in Hong Kong and have
been stressed in the policy address. In general, a social enterprise is an
organisation that applies business strategies to achieve specific social or
philanthropic objectives. Its profits will be principally reinvested in the
business for the social objectives that it pursues, rather than distribution
to its shareholders.

On this coming Thursday (13 Oct) evening, we will have chance to learn more
about the development of social enterprises in Hong Kong from Ms Florence
Hui, who is the current Under Secretary for Home Affairs and is in charge of
the policy making for the development of local social enterprises.

If you are interested in knowing this topic but have not registered, please
take this chance as soon as possible. Please refer to the attachment for the
details of the event.

We are looking forward to seeing you on Thursday.

Dr Peter Chan
Treasurer of SEYSA
*Youder since 2011*

Dear Members,

*Be My Guest Series 2011: Dinner with **Ms Florence HUI (**許曉暉)*

* *

We are cordially inviting you to attend Be My Guest dinner in the coming
October. In this dinner, we are most pleased to have Ms Florence Hui be our
guest. Ms Hui, like all of us, is an awardee of Sir Edward Youde Memorial
Fund. She is currently the Under Secretary for the Home Affairs Bureau,
whose key policy areas include culture and sports, district administration,
youth development and social enterprises.

In May this year, she introduced and explained the local development of
social enterprises to the public, through a real-time online discussion on a
television programme – “時事Q&A”. Social enterprises have been developing and
playing more and more significant roles in Hong Kong. They are not only making
impact on our society, but also providing new opportunities to us. In the
coming Be My Guest dinner, Ms Hui would share with us her view on the social
enterprises, under the topic “Opportunities and challenges for social
enterprises” (「社企的機會與挑戰」) and each of us would have an opportunity to talk
closely with her.

the dinner are as follows.
