Abstract: Both Singapore and Taiwan are island states. They shared similarities but also had differences in their developments. In terms of social organization, associations are important for the Hakka in Southeast Asia. There were many types of associations in Singapore and Malaysia. Namely the geographical associations, which link to the ancestral homes in Mainland China such as provinces and prefectures, the consanguinity associations with fictive kinship centered on surnames, and the industry-network associations that were classified by industry. This study mainly focused on the geography-based Hakka Associations. Most of the immigrants were single and in need of assistance, therefore the regional network groups were important for them as supportive groups. These regional network groups became the most important groups during the early period of immigration.
