Statement Regarding the Non-renewal of Victor Mallet’s Work Visa

Chamber submission
12/10/2018

The British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong is a strong supporter of, and advocate for, Hong Kong as an international business centre. The Chamber is also a firm supporter of Hong Kong’s special status as part of China under the One Country Two Systems arrangements.

The Chamber has noted the decision not to renew the work visa of Victor Mallet of the Financial Times, and the concerns this raises about freedom of expression and information in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong’s rights and freedoms under One Country Two Systems, including of speech, expression and information, along with the rule of law, are core features of its special status.
