Hong Kong Toys Council (HKTC) was established in 1986 under the auspices of Federation of Hong Kong Industries (FHKI), a fully independent statutory industrial organisation in Hong Kong. The Council aims at promoting and fostering the interests of Hong Kong toys industry from both local and international perspectives. HKTC endeavours to raise awareness of international product safety standards among the industry in view of the increasing demand for higher product quality. Council members preside on various committees of local and international bodies including the Toy Advisory Committee of Hong Kong Trade Development Council, International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI) and Asian Committee of Toy Industries. In recent years, HKTC has been internationally recognised, as it has successfully created a communication platform for local industry players and representatives around the globe.
