Y. K. Pao, My Father

Anna Pao Sohmen

Hong Kong University Press

The author reminisces about the lives of her family members in Hong Kong when she was young, and she recalls what her family usually did during the Lunar New Year. The establishment of offices at different strategic points around the globe gradually turned the shipping company into a worldwide one. The large family became more international as well, with grandsons and granddaughters all having different nationalities. Entertaining the notion that he should play a more active role in world politics, Sir Y. K. Pao met a number of renowned political leaders. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1978 and was keen to promote friendship between China and other nations. His daughters took turns in accompanying him to attend important events and meetings.
