In Hainan province, the Administrative Office of Overseas NGOs has issued the Hong Kong branch of the International Association for Volunteer Effort (国际志愿者协会–香港) with registration credentials. The International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE) was founded in 1970. With members in more than 70 countries, IAVE aims to promote, strengthen and celebrate volunteering efforts throughout the world.
After the official handing over of the registration credentials, there was a round table discussion with the Chinese area secretary of IAVE and the China Blue Sustainability Institute, in which IAVE expressed its thanks and support to the Hainan Administrative Office of Overseas NGOs. The organization hopes to maintain a close relationship with the Hainan Administrative Office of Overseas NGOs to develop Hainan’s economy and civil society.
