Please click here to revisit the Seminar (Chinese only)

To deepen public understanding of the constitutional basis of Hong Kong, the HKSAR Government and the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the HKSAR co-organised a seminar (the Seminar) on the Constitution Day, with the Endeavour Education Centre being the supporting organisation.

2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the promulgation and implementation of the existing Constitution. As stated in the Report to the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, which was just smoothly convened, it is imperative to fully, faithfully and resolutely implement the policy of "One Country, Two Systems", under which the people of Hong Kong administer Hong Kong with a high degree of autonomy, to remain committed to law-based governance in Hong Kong, and to maintain constitutional order in the HKSAR as stipulated in the Constitution and the Basic Law. Also, this year marks the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to the Motherland, which represents a significant milestone in the implementation of "One Country, Two Systems". As Hong Kong is now ready for a new start in advancing from stability to prosperity, the Seminar was conducted on the theme “Constitution and New Journey of the New Era” to actively explore how the Constitution takes a more vital role in the development of "One Country, Two Systems" at the critical moment when our country embarks on a new journey and Hong Kong enters a new stage in the new era.

Comprising a keynote speech and a panel discussion, the Seminar was held at the venue and was livestreamed online. Details are as follows:

Date: 4 December 2022 (Sunday)
Time: 3:00 p.m. to 4:35 p.m.
