Secretary for Justice the Hon Rimsky Yuen Kwok-keung, SC will speak to members at the Chamber's ongoing "Town Hall Forum Series" on 1 September.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Reviewing the past 20 years, the rule of law is one of the key factors contributing to Hong Kong's past and continuing success. The satisfactory performance of our legal and judicial systems, and the wider context of the rule of law, have been well acknowledged by international institutions.

Facing challenges in the past few years, the Secretary for Justice will share with members at our special "Town Hall Forum Series" on how Hong Kong will continue to uphold the rule of law (including, but not limited to, the maintenance of judicial independence under the "One Country, Two Systems" policy). The Secretary would also be happy to answer questions on topical issues, for example, the co-location arrangement for the Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link, legal policy in respect of the Belt and Road Initiative and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area.

Places are limited so book early to secure your seat to hear from and share your thoughts with Hong Kong's justice chief.
