Security education day set for Apr 15

April 13, 2021

The National Security Education Day will be held on April 15, the first one after the Hong Kong National Security Law’s implementation, the Government announced today.


The day will also mark the launch of the first National Security Education Day events organised by the Committee for Safeguarding National Security of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.


The event, with the theme of Uphold National Security × Safeguard Our Home - Improve Electoral System, Ensure Patriots Administering Hong Kong, aims to raise Hong Kong residents’ awareness on national security, create a positive atmosphere of national security, enhance the capacity to fend off national security risks, deepen understanding of the National Constitution, the Basic Law and national security, and foster national identity.


There will be an opening ceremony and seminar, community and school mosaic wall activities as well as open days for academies of disciplined services and a national security exhibition.


On July 1, 2015, the 15th meeting of the Standing Committee of the 12th National People’s Congress passed the National Security Law of the People’s Republic of China, and designated April 15 each year as National Security Education Day.


The Hong Kong National Security Law was promulgated and implemented on June 30, 2020.


Article 3 stipulates that it is the duty of the Hong Kong SAR under the Constitution to safeguard national security and the region shall perform the duty accordingly, while Article 10 stipulates that the region shall promote national security education to raise the awareness of Hong Kong residents of national security and of the obligation to abide by the law.
