Mr. Thomas Wong, one of the three founding partners of CWCC, a professional advisory and CPA firm established in Hong Kong in 1986. In 1994, Thomas led the firm to be one of the first foreign firms to establish presence in China. Nowadays, CWCC’s network  has extended to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Nanchang. CWCC is also a member of the Kingston Sorel International (KSI), a global accounting body having a network of affiliate firms all over the world.

Graduated from Hong Kong Polytechnic, Thomas is a fellow member of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). He has been on the committee of Chiu Chow Chamber of Commerce since 2003, and had served as an advisor on the Trade Development Council's Professional Services Advisory Committee from 2006 to 2010. He is currently the Vice Chairman of the Americas Committee of the Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce. He is also a past council member of CIMA Hong Kong, a role he held for four years.

In view of Latin America's and Spain's increasing trade with China, Thomas set up the Latin American and Spanish business advisory desk in 2006 exclusively for Spanish and Portuguese speaking clients. Over the past few years, the Latin America and Spanish Desk has taken the lead in Hong Kong, assisting many Latin and Spanish companies to set up operations in Hong Kong and China.  Using his broad experience in business and dealing with Latin American companies and staff, Thomas will share his cultural and economic insights about this vibrant region of the world mostly unknown in Hong Kong.
