About The Foreign Correspondents’ Club

The Foreign Correspondents’ Club, Hong Kong, is a private, member-owned club that is open to all. Probably the most famous press club in the world, it counts correspondents and journalists, as well as diplomats, doctors, bankers, lawyers, artists, teachers and other occupations among its members. The FCC is fully independent of other press clubs and does not work with them when issuing press freedom statements, hosting speakers’ events, or any other activities.

The FCC has a long and rich journalistic heritage going back to our founding in China in 1943. The club moved into its current location in 1983.
