Educational Series: How HK Works - Jason Wordie Talk and Cocktail Reception

Signup no longer available. Please contact the coordinator directly.

Whether you’re new to HK or have been here a while, HK's unique position within China and the grounds for its evolving political, economic, and social fabric can be an enigma.

Join our favourite local historian, Jason Wordie, for one of his most popular talks, “How HK Works”. Our evening will begin with a cocktail reception (open bar and canapés) at the Club Royal within the Dynasty Court Apartment complex located in mid-levels Central.

Jason’s illustrated Talk will explain the common terms and functions that are often heard and can be puzzling. For example, what is Exco, Legco, the Joint Declaration, the Basic Law. What does the term One Country, Two Systems mean and how does it really work. What is a Functional Constituency and who or what is the Heung Yee Kuk? Answers to these questions and many more will be comprehensively discussed. This wide-ranging Talk gives such insight into everyday HK life that we consider it a “must do” that will enhance your HK experience.

No refund will be given for cancellations received after 1 March.
