Deputy SJ to visit Europe

March 3, 2023

Deputy Secretary for Justice Cheung Kwok-kwan will depart for Europe on March 5 to visit Italy, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands for meetings with three prominent private international law organisations.


The organisations include the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law, the Hague Conference on Private International Law and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, which are all headquartered in Europe.


The visit aims to foster closer connections and collaboration as well as consolidate Hong Kong’s status as the centre for international legal and dispute resolution services in the Asia-Pacific region.


Mr Cheung will attend and speak at a number of conferences and receptions.


He will also meet the leaders of international organisations and prominent political and business figures to introduce Hong Kong’s robust legal system and rule of law situation as well as update them on the city’s latest legal developments with the unique advantages under “one country, two systems”, and tell the good stories of Hong Kong.


Mr Cheung will conclude his visit at The Hague on March 11 and return to Hong Kong the next morning.
