HKSAR Government Liaoning Liaison Unit operations in full swing (with photos)

     The Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs, Mr Raymond Tam, officiated at the unveiling ceremony of the Liaoning Liaison Unit (LLU) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) in Shenyang, Liaoning Province today (April 27), marking the full-fledged operation of the LLU.

     Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, Mr Tam said that the LLU of the HKSAR Government was established with the aim to further strengthen HKSAR's ties with the Liaoning province and its municipalities, enhance government-to-government co-operation, promote exchange and co-operation between Hong Kong and the relevant province and municipalities, and to provide support for Hong Kong residents and companies in the area.

     He said the establishment of the LLU signified an important step for the HKSAR Government in fostering closer ties and co-operation between Hong Kong and the Mainland.

     Mr Tam noted that Liaoning was one of the earliest coastal provinces to implement the open-door policy. It is also a major source of Chinese culture and civilisation, he added.

     Hong Kong has been maintaining close bilateral trade relations with Liaoning. As at the end of 2014, the cumulative number of Hong Kong investment projects in Liaoning amounted to 11,951 and actual cumulative investment was USD 98.1 billion, making Hong Kong the largest actual investment source in the province.

     Also officiating at the unveiling ceremony were the Vice-governor of the Liaoning Provincial Government, Mr Bing Zhigang; the Deputy Director of Department of Liaison, Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, Mr Liu Wenda; the Vice-mayor of the Shenyang Municipal Government, Mr Yang Yazhou; the Director of the Office of the Government of the HKSAR in Beijing, Ms Gracie Foo; and the Director of LLU, Mr Kilian Tung.

     The LLU was set up under the purview of the Office of the HKSAR Government in Beijing. Its temporary office is located at Office 420-422, 4/F, Sofitel Shenyang Lido, 386 Qingnian Street, Heping District, Shenyang. Hong Kong residents living in Liaoning can contact the LLU by phone at (86 24) 2318 8123 or by email at for assistance and enquiries.
