The former Chairlady, Ms. Rose Ko made concerted effort with the Board of Directors during her tenure, spared unreserved effort in expanding business network and consolidating the leading position of the Hong Kong fur industry. Despite of the global economic slowdown in 2019 and the adverse impact on the Hong Kong Fur Fair due to the global pandemic, Ms. Ko led the Board of Directors with perseverance and unyielding spirit to overcome difficulties, thus staging the first ever Virtual Hong Kong International Fur & Fashion Fair in March 2021. Ms. Rose Ko will continue to serve the Hong Kong fur industry and remain as Honorary Chairlady to the HKFF Board.
