1 HSBC Visit

 

 

A group of F4 students visited the HSBC Archives to learn about the bank's rich history, and its contributions to the economic and social development of Hong Kong. During the guided tour, students were given the opportunity of immersing themselves in HSBC's colourful history by exploring an impressive business and arts collection that included such artifacts as letters, photographs, banknotes and architectural drawings.
