“Back in the 60’s, we have witnessed the growth of the textiles, electronics, watches, toys and plastic industry. Due to rapid socio-economic changes along with economic downturn in the European and US markets, Hong Kong industries are faced with lots of challenges. To cope with these difficulties, we need to identify market trends and implement the right risk management programs. It is crucial to create our own brands and market these locally designed products in the Mainland and overseas market. Over the past 30 years, I have learnt to manage the risks and challenges which were prevalent in the toy industry. We need to be adaptive to the fast-moving business environments as well as market trends and to grasp the opportunities that arise. We have to transform ourselves under different circumstances and to upgrade and expand our businesses for sustainability. We also need to build our image and preserve our integrity through enforcing strict compliance to the corporate governance code. Our mission is to protect the interests of all stakeholders and maintain cross industry co-operation and win-win situations. Tsuen Lee will continue to explore new business opportunities and research in new products to create synergy among our customers. We are also working with the local communities to achieve all win situations such that both the industry and the company would benefit.”
