Christine Loh will provide an update on Hong Kong, focusing on the HKSAR government’s new "principal officials accountability system" (a proto-cabinet executive system), as well as the government’s effort to pass legislation in 2003 on subversion, sedition, treason, secession, theft of state secrets and prohibiting foreign political groups from using Hong Kong as a "base for subverting China."
Christine Loh was a legislator in Hong Kong from 1992-1997 and 1998-2000. Before that, she spent 14 years in business working for a multinational commodities trading firm. She was trained as a lawyer in England, and she has chaired numerous non-profit organizations. She is currently the CEO of Civic Exchange, a public policy think tank in Hong Kong.
