The Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is an organ of the Central People's Government of the People's Republic of China.

Contents

Description

It is responsible for liaisions with the People's Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison and the Office of the Commissioner of the Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong. It is also responsible for liaisons with Chinese companies in Hong Kong, and facilitating economic, cultural, educational, technology and sport exchanges and cooperations between Hong Kong and mainland China. De facto, the CLO is also the headquarters of the People's Republic of China's United Front in Hong Kong, and therefore the origin of all propaganda efforts carried out in the territory in order to "win the minds and the hearts" of the Hong Kong citizens. For this reason, protests occasionally occur before its building.[1].

History

Before renaming on January 18, 2000, it was known as the Xinhua News Agency Hong Kong Branch. Before the transfer of sovereignty in 1997, it was the de facto diplomatic mission of the People's Republic of China in the territory, since the People's Republic of China did not recognise the legitimacy of British colonial rule. The current director of the office is Gao Siren.
