Hong Kong.China.Hawaii Chamber of Commerce (HKCHcc) and InvestHK Special Business Luncheon featuring Simon Galpin, Associate Director-General, Invest Hong Kong, HKSAR Government titled “Hong Kong – Your Best Partner and Risk Manager in China”

Johnson, I think I have been triple blessed to have had the opportunity to connect up with you. Thanks so much for including me at the luncheon yesterday. I took copious notes and wish that Hawaii could be as business friendly as HK. I learned a lot, made some contacts that would be helpful for our clients and had a few epiphanies as to the opportunities that await small businesses if HK is the right place for them. My great thanks and appreciation! Have a great week-end. J Aloha, Caroline

Johnson, Thank you very much for inviting me to the luncheon. It was informative and I enjoyed meeting others that attended. You are right about the networking opportunities. I hope that people will be inspired to expand
their business. The article in the Hawaii Business Magazine was good and that was another nice picture for your scapebook! Thank you again for inviting me and thank you for all you do for Hawaii's businesses. Naomi

Johnson: Thank you very much for the wonderful lunch and stimulating event. Aloha, David

Hi Johnson, Today's luncheon was very well done. I was really impressed at the caliber of people you had in attendance (Gov. Ariyoshi, Rep. Calvin Say, Paul Brewbaker, etc.). Wow. Thank you so much for allowing me to circulate PTC's information about their upcoming conference. As some point, I'd like to learn more about what you do to see if PTC there are some synergies between your organization and PTC that we might explore. Thanks again for the invitation and I'll see you Thursday at Rotary!

Johnson: You are doing great work. Warmest Aloha, Gerhart

Thank you for having me, Johnson. You are doing a remarkable job in promoting Hong Kong. I hope your are financially successful in all you are doing. Honk Kong is one of my favorite cities—perhaps my very favorite city. When I was with the Hawaii chamber some years ago, I was the treasurer of the first community effort to get a mass transit system for Honolulu. We were to be ninety percent funded by our federal government. And this was to be no matter what the cost. Funding would include overruns. (And mass transit system are notorious for costing more than projected.) Ten years later, I was again treasurer of the second effort by our business community to get a system going. (This time it was with 80% federal funding, but still based on total costs, not original projections.) We lost this effort by one vote of the city council. Between these two failed efforts, Hong Kong decided to have a mass transit system, completed it, and had a very successful system in full operation. Hong Kong is a remarkable place. They get things done. One of the things that impressed me in yesterdays presentation was the claim that they are still using British commercial law. I remember that before the takeover many were worried that Beijing interference would foul things up, with all legal documents having to me translated into Chinese. They feared that Beijing interpretations would create a nightmare for business. It might be good to have a session by lawyers on this subject to get a current reading and a better understanding by those contemplating doing business in Hong Kong. Aloha, Bob

Good afternoon Johnson, Mahalo for that wonderful luncheon and great array of people and subject matter. Mahalo again, Harold

Thank you for a very enjoyable and informative luncheon, Johnson. It was nice seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones. The program was very enlightening and I learned a lot about doing business overseas. I appreciate your kind invitation, too. Sandra

Dear Johnson, Thanks for your invitation to this fine event that you’ve organized so well for InvestHK. I am sure that they are pleased with your efforts. You’ve brought together “movers and shakers” of Hawaii. Best regards, Bee Leng

Thank you for inviting me to lunch. I learned a lot and enjoyed the presentation. I left at the end of the speaker's presentation because I had another event to get to. I look forward to future events. Mark

The award with be presented during the SBA National Business Week at the Mandarin Oriental Washington DC April 21 – 23

Dear Johnson, I am truly excited by this great recognition and the honor you bring to all of us. I am always amazed by your great energy and integrity in promoting everything that you do, including TIM School and keeping up your fabulous website and use of technology. You never give up, I remember the Kent Keith poem you read at one event long ago about keep going on even in the face of insurmountable odds. I know it is not always easy down in the trenches but if you do a good job, those above sometimes do take note, it is a great vindication of all the good you do and all the students you help and inspire. I am very happy for you and Carmen. I can hardly wait for great celebration event. An auspicious beginning for year of the rat, the cycle of beginnings. Three Cheers, Juanita

Hello Johnson…Congratulations, I certainly will save the date. I’m afraid Percy has office hours at that time and would not be able to attend. Life is full of choices. You have made good choices and are living a full, positive, productive life. You can’t eat it, but this life you are living is the “beef”. Don’t ever confuse money and power with success. They can be tools to help you be productive, but should never be the goal. Carolyn

Dear Johnson: HEARTIEST CONGRATULATIONS on your winning the SBA Award for Minority Businesses in Hawaii! See, I told you I knew what to emphasize in the letter of support.... You are highly deserving of this award for all you do in our community. If I am not out of town, I will plan to attend your lunch at the HHV to see you receive this significant honor--a new milestone in your life. Aloha, Chuck

Hi Johnson, Congratulations on this magnificent award. I remember one of the things that really impressed me about you was your contacts, your successful follow through and initiative that you provided during the planning and execution of Chuck's birthday celebration at the RHH. I certainly enjoyed reading your email message, am honored to receive it and informed about your award. and opportunity to meet President Bush. I look forward to attending the luncheon on April 30th. We will be away from March 26-April 17th. Congratulations again. Aloha, Joanna

My dear Johnson, Congratulations! I am glad to receive such good news. I pray that you will carry on with your good work and gain more prizes and recognitions for your effort. It would be great for me if I could be there to attend such a great event. However, we just cannot go wherever we wish to. Religious Priests have no such freedom. I will be with you in spirit and prayer, that the Good Lord will keep you always in His loving care and protection, especially in this most competitive and materialistic world. Take care and do keep in touch. Make sure to let me know when you are in Macau. Fr. Lionel Xavier OP

Congratulations, Johnson! Very impressive! I will note the date and try to be in Honolulu during that period... we'll discuss all and schedule. Thanks, x Corey

Dear Johnson, Congratulations! We are all proud of you. Wish you will win the “National” Award! We did all have the good time & education at Rosaryhill!

Again, my heartiest congratulations, Johnson, on your winning this stellar national award from the SBA. We must all gather to help you celebrate this landmark event in your life! Aloha, Chuck

Gisela and I do not have any plans on being in Hawaii around April 30th, but if we are in Hawaii , you can be assured that we will attend the SBA Luncheon. Thank you for alerting us of this function and good luck in further competition. Fondest Aloha, Morton

DEAR JOHNSON CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR WELL DESERVED AWARD THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT AND WHAT YOU DO FOR ALL OF US, ESP TIM. ROBERTA

Congratulation Johnson! Rosaryhill School, your friends and family are proud of you in receiving SBA Award in April, 08. Due to the pre-scheduling, Robert and I will be out of town during that period. Sorry we are unable to attend your award luncheon at this time. Have a good celebration party! Antonia

Congratulations!!! I not surprised by this honor and recognition you so deserve! I know how you feel about wanting to share this with your parents, they really do mold us into the individuals we become as adults. They would be so proud of you, but keep in mind that they were always proud even when they were alive. I will definitely be there at the luncheon, please send the details on how to register. Keep up the fantastic work you continue to do. Warmest regards,
Audrey

Johnson!!! congratulations...i think it was not a coincidence that you were on my thoughts early this morning on my way to an appointment. i could not hold back tears reading of your testimony; and, without a fraction of doubt, you fit the parameters of this award to a tee. as stephen expressed, it is our honor to receive your invitation to celebrate this monumental achievement. though sweet carmen might ask 'where's the beef,' i think you have learned money falls way down to the bottom of the list when it comes to priorities and your commitment to individuals. though your father taught you well, it is still your own decision to exercise a passion in anything you do and to find contentment in serving others as your true reward. anyone who can fit serving their community, along with their own goals and demands for success, is such a selfless person. we will be there to celebrate in spirit with you even if we are not there in physical presence. thank you most sincerely for blessing us with your friendship. luv, susan

Congratulations on the this award and all of your achievements. It is a high accomplishment to be the SBA 2008 Minority Small Business Champion.

Unfortunately Susan and I will be out of town (for pleasure) and will not return until evening of the day of the luncheon and will not be able to attend. It is our honor to be included in your circle that you feel contributed positively to your life. Stephen

Johnson, Congratulations. Well done! And words well said. And this is the BEST part: "You have to love what you do and do it well with passions. If you do it only for money, it is not the right way....you cannot work with your partners or associates that you have to always watch your back, lack the integrity .......say or do things that could do you harm" Just love it. Paul

“An Update of the Business Climate in China” Opportunities Niches for Hawaii China Business? By BRENDA LEI FOSTER, PRESIDENT, American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai

Thanks for organizing the luncheon talk today. It was highly successful and I learnt a lot. Bee Leng

Thank you so much for today's speech, I think this is the best so far about China topic event, I realize no one leave early and no empty seat, this never happen before, you did excellent job, so does Johnson, Dean Gee and Yen's MC, it told us China is hot, I saw so much old friends which I didn't see for years. The event run very professional, Brenda's next speech we need find big venue. When we have lunch in China town month ago, we talked about this, now it is real, I total believe HKCHcc "get job done" slogan. Have safe trip, I will come to Shanghai end of May and beginning of June. Hope see you there. Michael

Johnson, it was an awesome event! Ken

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this event, and congratulations on its success. I hope that we can work together in the future. Vance

I second what Johnson and Michael said. Chuck was correct today. No body in Honolulu knows about China as much as you do. You are there at the "front line". You have all the hands on information plus the benefit of all the research Am Cham does. What a fabulous speech you made! Did you know the entire banquet room was very quiet and everyone was listening intensely and trying to digest all you have said. Yes, we could have listened to you for another 2 hours. The event was extremely successful because of our outstanding speaker. By the way, many people who were turned down due to the venue capacity, asked if the speech was recorded. I know Jay recorded it. But, by any chance, you could share the script or your speech, or part of it? I am sure many people would appreciate it and benefit from it. A couple people who could not be there wanted me to pass on their hellos to you. They are Hope Staab of Wo International and Charlotte Vick now in Texas. Have a safe journey back to your other home. Thank you again for doing so much for HKCHcc, the State of Hawaii, and the children and women in China. Much aloha, Yen

Thank you, Johnson, for a great program and speaker. I only wish I had taped Brenda. Do you know if I can get a transcript of her speech? It was so full of good information but she spoke quite fast and I could not write everything down. Warm regards, Lei

Nice, job, Johnson. Richard

Thank you very much for the opportunity. I really enjoyed the event and the speech was very interesting. I hope I can help you also in the future. With Aloha, Ildiko

Congratulations on a most successful forum. Your hardwork paid off! Let us think of collaborating for another speaker in the near future. The momentum is there and let us seize the opportunity! Rosita

Congratulations on your event, Johnson! Wish I could have been there. Brenda is one of my favorite people. Steve

The recorded presentation is very clear. This is a really successful event. Thanks, Johnson. :) Jiabao

Please also keep me updated on the next event you will be hosting and make sure to include me in your email list. I like what I saw at the last seminar, Oliver

As you have everyone on your server, I thought I'd use this expedient way to extend my own congratulations to Brenda. Yen, I echo your eloquent sentiments about Brenda's performance in spades! Brenda, you did an outstanding job and as Mike Zhang noted, no one left--as they usually do--when we ran overtime. I heard many compliments about your presentation which had so much data and insights, the only regret being a lack of time to get to all of the questions. As you could all see, I was standing next to Brenda fidgeting in trying to end the session, but there was always another hand waiting to pose another question. Johnson, you did a trojan's job in organizing the event. I hope you did not mind too much my giving you more work about producing a printed program. Meetings are always about details, and yesterday everything came off like clockwork. I am glad you thanked helpers who took care of the registration. Thanks, Yen, for introducing me so nicely. As I said, emcees don't usually get intros unless a meeting is high-level government requiring all kinds of protocol. I still remember when Lady Margaret Thatcher had to be introduced at a PATA conference when I was program chair. We had to introduce the introducer to Lord King, who was part of the official Thatcher party, charged with the task of introducing Mrs Thatcher. By the time everyone was done, we used up nearly half an hour. After Mrs. Thatcher's spellbinding talk, I followed her on the podium when everyone was awestruck with that formidable lady's presentation--not something anyone would want to do voluntarily. Yesterday's educational forum is perhaps what HKCHCC can do best as an organization with limited resources to accomplish our goal of promoting business, trade and amity between Hawaii, China and HKG. The previous two HKCHCC for a sponsored by the HKG Economic Trade Dev. Office in SF were also well received, distinguishing us from others. Congratulations to all who helped make this event successful, especially our valued board member, Brenda. Chuck

Johnson, Chuck, Yen and Michael: I want to thank all of you for your nice comments about my presentation although I am not sure they are warranted. I always enjoy speaking about China in the hopes that I can give a somewhat more realistic presentation of business on the ground here than what is normally reported in the press. I arrived back in Shanghai last night. I will look forward to seeing you all in the near future. Thank you again, for everything you did to pull this event together. It was greatly appreciated. Aloha, Brenda

Thank you for the program with AmChamber-Shanghai Lunch, well done. I think you could have sold another 50 seats. We should do a few of these type of programs for the DEC as a way of raising awareness and funds. DJ

"Hong Kong and Hawaii : Countable Islands, Unlimited Opportunities"

Miss Jacqueline Ann Willis, JP - Hong Kong Commissioner for Economic and Trade Affairs

Click here to download Microsoft Power Point Presentation in "read only" file format  PDF Format

Johnson - Thank you for including us in this great event. You, your entire organization, did a terrific job hosting the Commissioner. I told the Councilman of the large and diverse audience and of the opportunities presented. He again stated his regret that he had to speak at another event and could not attend but is appreciative that I could represent him. Thank you for keeping us in touch with your organizations. Willes

Mr. Choi, Thank you for letting us experience your Spring Business Luncheon. It was very impressive. The kyenote speaker, Miss Willis was inspiring. We would like to learn more. Thank you, Harry & Eleanor

Dear Johnson, Aloha! Thank you so much for the invitation to Thursday's lunch! I had a great time and it was a classy, enjoyable, informative and smoothly run event. Let me know if there are ways that I can be supportive. I'm looking forward to seeing you all over these next two months. With much appreciation, Ray

Dear Johnson, I learned a lot from Ms. Willis’ talk. Thank you very much for your kindness and hospitality. Teri

Aloha Johnson, XieXie for a great program. Job well done!!! DJ

Thank You! Keep up the good work! Anthony

Dear Johnson, This is just a brief note to let you know how much I enjoyed hearing Mike Rowse and Jacqueline Willis. They provided some great information on HK. Mr. Rowse is the funniest and funniest-looking Chinese guy I've heard to-date. Thank you for giving me and other members of Honolulu's private and public sectors the opportunity to hear them. Aloha, Ron

Johnson, Thank you for including us in yesterday’s Spring luncheon. I enjoyed hearing the highlights on how H.K. is expanding services. Lunch was delicious and I appreciate having been included. Again thanks and have a grand week-end. Aloha, Caroline

Johnson, I agree with you 100 % that the U.S. Media is biased. It does not tell everyday Americans what is really happening in China in terms of the rapid modernization and business growth. The Germans, French, Koreans, Japanese and Australians have moved their business structure into China through their investments. Large multinational companies from the U.S.have already been here since the 90’s. Hawaii needs to provide some business value which is core to the Chinese business model. It is difficult because in Hawaii we lack a lot of things necessary for business incubation: high taxes, expensive real estate to own or lease, lack of manufacturing base, lack of major U.S. Distribution network access, lack of large consumer market and lack of finance capital for business incubation. Good luck. Best, Russell

Johnson - Since you left HKBAH 5 years ago as President, they no longer promote HK...all they talk about is China...The only time they mentioned HK is when they do the installation banquet as they know HK Government officials are there...they should changed the name as you understand how businesses need to be done. Daniel

Johnson - I must thank you again for inviting me to yesterday's luncheon. Miss Willis' presentation was most interesting and followed nicely your own talk. You are doing an outstanding job of making our business community more aware of opportunities in Hong Kong. You are an ideal spokesman and are sure to have a positive impact. My congratulations and aloha, Bob

Thank you for doing such a great job at putting together these events. Maybe one day we do lunch downtown? Ciao Ann

Johnson, Thanks for the invitation to today’s lunch. You have done an incredible job of increasing awareness of business opportunities that exist in HK and the rest of China to Hawaii’s academic and business community. Thanks for all that you do for all of us to make Hawaii’s economy more diversified. Regards, Bob

Hi Johnson: Thanks for inviting me to the function yesterday. good turnout! Hope all is well with you. cheers, lena

Dear Johnson, Thank you for your invitation. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Please let me know of future events. Thanks! Ken; PS: We missed you at our Lions Club. Lion Ernest Chang will be Club President. We can do a lot of things for our community especially with your Hong Kong China connection. Please let me know how can I be of help in your association. Mahalo!

Johnson, Again, thank you for including PAAC on another successful luncheon program. I am sure our members appreciated it. Aloha, Lisa

If possible could you provide us with a list of Chinese paper manufacturers that produce paper for commercial printers. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Dear Johnson, Thank you again for sponsoring me at today’s luncheon. Mike’s talk was very insightful in that a client of mine is considering very seriously opening an international bank in Hong Kong. Was Mike’s talk recorded and available for purchase on CD or tape? I would love to be able to share it with my client. Aloha, David

Dear Johnson, Congratulations for a highly successful luncheon program tonight. The speaker was indeed something else! He combines British sense of humor (or humour) with down-to-earth Chinese practicality. The result is memorable! I also want to congratulate you on the excellent overall organization. I can see now why you are such a successful person. With much aloha, Saleem

Thanks again for excellent luncheon event featuring Mike Rouse. We all enjoyed it and received a very passionate view about Hong Kong. Take good care and thanks for all that you do for our community. Glenn M

Thank you Johnson for all your focus and hard work to getting such a good crowd at the event which I realize contributed to Mike Rowse having such a great forum -- since he came from not that easy a plane ride, it's great to have a packed house and that's what you did! Mike and I have exchanged emails already and I look forward to one day seeing him in a trip to Hong Kong. Ciao! Ann

Johnson, Thank you for your hospitality and aloha! I enjoyed hearing Mike Rowes’ speech and especially liked the Q&A format. Great job! I look forward to working with you in the future. Wendy

Thank you for your very positive support for Hong Kong and our ongoing business initiatives. Life does indeed carry on here and despite the sensitivity of the public to risk of infection from SARS, there is a widespread community determination to beat this disease and bring our lives and businesses back to normal as soon as possible. The help from your Chamber is much appreciated...Martin

So proud of you to reiterate the confidence for those who have been trading with Hong Kong.  I am sure that if we can live through this difficult period, we can deal with any challenge in the future.  Keep our spirit up.  Take care....Cecilia

Merry Christmas to you and your family. Congratulations on the many successes of your organization. When I remember the year 2002, the opportunity to speak to the representatives of the Ministry of Finance will the most memorable event. It was quite an honor. Best of luck in 2003!

Thanks, Johnson.  Please keep up the good work in 2003.

Wow, Thank you for sharing.  Nice newsletter.

Your commercial activities seem to related to Hong Kong/PRC and therefore, I was wondering if there is any synergy that this firm and you work together on projects.

Johnson, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too.  Thanks for taking the time to keep in touch with me.  You are right, keep reminding the folks at home, China is the frontier, no longer new, just a big frontier.  The opportunities are vast, difficult to do business but lots of opportunities.  China needs good people too, especially those trained in the west so tell all the young people there are good employment opportunities in China.

Nice message, short, sweet and to the point.  Congratulations.

Johnson....Thank you so much for your recent communications, especially the pictures - much appreciated. I take this opportunity to reciprocate your Good Wishes & Greetings for the Holiday Season to you, your family, to the Membership & Directors of the HKCHcc & their families. The HKCHcc is indeed fortunate in having a person of your dedication, enthusiasm and leadership.  I know that we can expect nothing but the best results from your tireless efforts for the common causes that we certainly share.

Merry Christmas to you and Carmen!  May our Lord renew your heart, soul, mind and body with His all-sufficient grace and love for the New Year!

Thank you for the Holiday message and good summary news. Have a great Holiday.

Greetings! Hope you are doing well. I have been traveling in the past month to China and Hong Kong. I sure agree with your comment that China is growing in a full force. I do intend to organize more Trade Missions or Promotional Road Shows for professional associations. I am also planning program for HKA Orange County. Please keep us in mind for any potential joint events in future. Wishing you a very Happy and Prosperous 2003!

Happy New Year to you, your family and all the Friends of HK and TDC in Hawaii. All the best for 2003.

Happy New Year to you and Carmen!  May the Lord bless you with His own dear presence throughout the coming year!

Johnson...Thanks for the continuing news and info. Always appreciated. Your continuous reminder of the importance of HK has brought us back for an IT show www.hkiiexpo.com as an exhibitor along with our provincial government. Stay in touch.....
