Before being formally established as the ‘Coordinating Committee of the Federation of Seven Clan Associations’, the 7 clan associations, ie, the Hokkien Association, the Kwang Tung Association, the Hakka Association, the Teochew Association, the Hainan Association, the Kwongsai Association and the San Kiang Association, were already unofficially regarded as the Federation of the Seven Clans Association and constantly invited to participate in Chinese communist activities.
In 2001, the Federation of Seven Clan Association was invited by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the People’s Republic of China to pay them a visit, and each association had sent a representative to Beijing.
At the end of 2001, after the celebration of the Winter Solstice together with the Prime Minister, the Teochew Association in its AGM had approved the resolution to form the Federation of Seven Clans Association, causing widespread concern. On 3 January 2002, Nanyang Siang Pau had held a dialogue with the seven clans on the proposed federation, where a consensus was reached that a united front must be reached. Thus it was decided that the Federation of Seven Clans Association will not be established, and that a coordinating committee will be set up instead.
