The YPA has been set up to educate, promote and inform young business leaders and students about the business and career opportunities in Sydney, Hong Kong and Greater China.

Principal Advisor and Founding Member of HKABA- NSW Chapter YPA Mr. Peter Bosevski says "Hong Kong is a dynamic, vibrant and energetic city with a plethora of business and career opportunities that links in with the lifestyle and objectives of young business people in Sydney and NSW. It is this drive and passion of both young business people and Hong Kong that makes it a natural fit for the formation of the YPA.
