Swire’s 150th Anniversary in Hong Kong

Mon 16 Aug 2021 Company News

The exhibition based on our Interpretive Plan to celebrate Swire’s 150th Anniversary in Hong Kong will launch on 27th August.

How does the growth of a corporation reflect that of Hong Kong?

Swire opened the doors of its first Hong Kong office on 1st May 1870. Over more than a century and a half, the group has grown and evolved with the city, pioneering businesses that have helped put Hong Kong on the map as a global commercial hub. Today, Swire is a leading player in Hong Kong’s property, aviation and beverage sectors. As a developer and landlord, as an airline operator, manufacturer and retailer – as well as an employer – the Swire group’s operations touch the lives of most Hong Kong people.

In this family-friendly exhibition, you will find historic artefacts and pictures alongside fun interactive experiences and photo booths.
