Beijing Commemorates 25th Anniversary of Hong Kong Basic Law

On March 29, 2015, the commemorating symposium and seminar of the 25th anniversary of the Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (Hong Kong Basic Law) were co-hosted by the Chinese Association of Hong Kong & Macao Studies and the Hong Kong & Macao Basic Law Society. The events were successfully held in Beijing, China, at the Great Hall of the People and Tsinghua University.

The commemorating symposium of the 25th anniversary of the Hong Kong Basic Law was held in the Great Hall of the People. At the morning event, several authorities on the Hong Kong Basic Law spoke on its interpretation and enforcement, including the Basic Law Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee Deputy Director Zhang Rongshun, Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council Deputy Director Zhou Bo, and Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong S.A.R. Deputy Director Huang Lan. Legal experts and practitioners from Mainland China and Hong Kong also gave speeches on relevant topics of the Hong Kong Basic Law.

Vice Chairman of the Chinese Association of Hong Kong & Macao Studies, Chairman of the Hong Kong & Macao Basic Law Society, and Dean of Tsinghua Law School Professor Wang Zhenmin pointed out in his speech that, as the constitutional law in Hong Kong under the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China, the Hong Kong Basic Law was the core of the rule of law in Hong Kong. However, in real practice, the enforcement of Hong Kong Basic Law needed more efforts than before.

In the afternoon, the commemorating seminar of the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong Basic Law was held at Tsinghua University. Renowned experts and scholars on the issue of Hong Kong and Macao from Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macao engaged in far-reaching discussions around practical experience, problems, solutions, and suggestions during the implementation of the Hong Kong Basic Law.
