Clansmen Culture Exhibition opens

July 6, 2022

Chief Executive John Lee opened the Clansmen Culture Exhibition at the Convention & Exhibition Centre today.


Organised by the Home Affairs Department, the expo is one of the signature events celebrating the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.


It features the exquisite cultures, arts and crafts of Chinese provinces and counties, showcasing 300 national, provincial and municipal intangible cultural heritage exhibits.


Speaking at the opening ceremony, Mr Lee said the exhibition carries great significance given that it is the first of its kind organised by the Government in collaboration with various clansmen associations.


He expressed the hope that the public would learn more about the historical landmarks, local customs, history and cultures of their hometowns through the expo, thereby deepening their understanding of Chinese culture and recognition of national identity.


Other officiating guests at the event included Deputy Director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong SAR He Jing and Secretary for Home & Youth Affairs Alice Mak.


The exhibition will run until July 12 and admission is free.
