Prestigious awards programme, now in its fourteenth years, pays tribute to the men and women who have met economic tests and helped make Hong Kong an international centre Hong Kong Business Awards 2003 Over the past 13 years, the DHL/SCMP Business awards have become the premier awards ceremony for Hong Kong's business community, recognising excellence in Hong Kong's commercial life and honouring the men and women who have ensured that this remains one of the world's most vigorous economies. The gallery of past winners represents a who's who of Hong Kong's best entrepreneurial and managerial talent. Businesses rise and fall with changing market conditions but the need for individuals who are willing to take risks and push new ideas remains constant. This year is no exception in recognising people who have excelled in their fields of endeavour against the backdrop of especially challenging times. Our winners are a disparate group of professionals from across a range of industries. All of them have overcome significant obstacles to become leaders in their particular industries. Some are household names, others may not be widely known outside their particular sectors. What unites them is their achievement of excellence and above all a commitment to the bottom line.
