The HKIE Overseas Chapters are set up with an aim to foster a spirit of friendly collaboration amongst members residing in overseas and to encourage them to maintain a close link with the Institution. Learned society activities are organised by the chapters for members in the respective countries.
The Institution has set up chapters in Canada, the UK and Australia. The Overseas Chapters organised various activities, in particular technical meetings, for their members. Some of their reports of activities have been published in the Journal.
