and professions, the recognition of the
worthiness of all useful occupation and the
dignifying of each Rotarians occupation as an
opportunity to serve society 3. the
application of the ideal of service in ones
personal, business and community life and 4.
the advancement of international understanding,
goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of
business and professional persons united in the
ideal of service.

  • History of District 3450
  • The first club in our district Rotary Club of
    Hong Kong was chartered in 1931.
  • Rotary International decided to constitute the
    clubs in Hongkong Macau - Taiwan area under
    District 345, effective as from 1st July 1960
    when we had altogether 17 clubs with 764
    Rotarians. 

28
  • History of District 3450
  • Due to the rapid growth, the number of Rotary
    clubs mushroomed to 101 in District 345 (Hong
    Kong-Macau-Northern Taiwan) during the Rotary
    Year 1986/87. 

29
  • History of District 3450

It was just impossible for a district governor
to oversee all these clubs, hence a new district
was born, known as District 348 (Northern Taiwan)
whereas District 345 remained unchanged, except
the area covers only Hong Kong-Macau with a total
of 27 clubs as from 1st July 1987.

3450. From August 2013, RI approved to include
Guangzhoug Province to District 3450.
