"The Taikoo Way – Swire in China for 150 Years" has clinched the top prize in the "Commercial and Management" category at the inaugural Hong Kong Publishing Biennial Awards organised by the Hong Kong Publishing Professionals Society. Over 400 books were entered in ten award categories, and a judging panel comprising professional book publishers and academics from Hong Kong, Mainland China and Taiwan selected the best entries based on the books’ content, writing skills, design and editing.

Compiled by Professor Stephanie Chung Po-yin of Hong Kong Baptist University, "The Taikoo Way – Swire in China for 150 Years" was jointly launched by Swire and Joint Publishing (H.K.) Co. Ltd. in celebration of the Swire group's 200th anniversary and the 150th anniversary of the opening of its first office in Mainland China. The royalties from the sales of the book have been donated to the Swire Group Charitable Trust to support a broad range of charities and activities in the fields of the arts and culture, education and the environment.
