國際潮團總會在香港設立常設秘書處,處理日常事務,協調全球數十國家、地區潮團活動。總會有嚴謹的章程及工作規範,有自己的網站、會訊及會刊。總會的會員逾百個,來自全球數十個國家和地區,大都是所在地有實力及影響力之社團,透過自己的網絡,聯繫全球近五千萬潮籍鄉親。

 

國際潮團聯誼年會是國際潮團總會最主要的活動之一,自1981年起每兩年一次於世界各地舉行,首屆年會於1981年由香港潮州總會主辦,第二屆至第十七屆依次由泰國潮州會館、馬來西亞潮州公會聯合會、新加坡潮州八邑會館、澳門潮州同鄉會、法國潮州會館、全美國潮團、香港潮州同鄉、汕頭海外交流協會、泰國潮州會館、北京潮人海外聯誼會、新加坡潮州八邑會館及義安公司、澳門潮州同鄉會、澳洲潮州同鄉會、廣東潮人海外聯誼會、馬來西亞潮州公會聯合會、湖北潮人海外聯誼會等潮團主辦。國際潮團總會第十八屆國際潮團聯誼年會定於2015年8月19日至21日在溫哥華舉行,由加拿大潮商會主辦。

 

歷届年會期間,各國政要甚為重視,總統、總理或首相親臨主禮,或題辭祝賀,極一時之盛。在中國舉行的四次年會,其中兩次由李瑞環政協主席主禮,一次由李長春政治局常委主禮。2001年在北京人民大會堂舉行的第十一屆年會,時任全國政協主席李瑞環,全國人大副委員長何魯麗,全國政協副主席王兆國、羅豪才,以及北京市長劉淇會見全體代表並出席開幕式。這一在世界上有重大影響的國際性盛會,對於全球潮人敦睦鄉誼,加強經濟文化交流,促進中國和海外潮人所在地區經濟貿易的發展,提高海外潮人及華人的地位,都起著重要的作用。國際潮團總會為東西方文化交流融合及經濟交流架起了一道金橋。

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO

TEOCHEW INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION

 

Teochew International Federation, previously named Teochew International Convention was established in the spring and summer of 1981, upon proposal of the Teochew associations in South-east Asia. Teochew International Federation is a symbol of great unity of the Teochew people worldwide. The ancestral hometown of Teochew people lies in Chaoshan areas of Guangdong Province. According to incomplete statistics, there are about 50 million Chiu Chow people in the world, of which nearly 20 million are living outside China. The mission of the Convention is to enhance clan ties, promote cultural exchanges, develop industry and commerce, and serve the community.

 

The Federation has set up the Standing Secretariat in Hong Kong to handle daily affairs and coordinate the activities of dozens of regional Chiu Chow associations around the world. The Federation has a well-defined charter and strict work regulations. It runs its own website, newsletter and journal. It has nearly one hundred member associations from dozens of countries and regions of the world. Most of these member associations are powerful and influential in their local communities. Through such a broad network, nearly 50 million Teochew people around the world are hooked up with each other.
