To commemorate the second anniversary of the ‘Decision on Establishing and Improving the Legal System and Enforcement Mechanisms for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to Safeguard National Security’ made by the National People’s Congress in 2020, the Department of Justice will organise a Legal Forum under the theme ‘Thrive with Security’ on 28 May 2022. Senior government officials, world-renowned legal experts and academics will gather together to review the progress achieved by the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, to explore frontier issues on national security, and to look ahead the further refinement of the legal framework for safeguarding national security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
The competition aims to increase students’ understanding of the Constitution, the Basic Law and the national security, as well as to promote their understanding of the rule of law and the developments of our country, the importance of safeguarding national security, the close relationship between national security and our daily lives, and the importance of national security to individuals, society and the country.
To tie in with the first anniversary of the promulgation of the Law of the People's Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (the Hong Kong National Security Law), the Security Bureau launched the Exhibition of the First Anniversary of the Promulgation of the Hong Kong National Security Law to enhance public understanding of the legislative background, importance and significance of the Hong Kong National Security Law, and to increase awareness of safeguarding national security. Being an online virtual exhibition, the public can conveniently view it anytime and anywhere. Comprising six zones, its rich content covers the importance of the Hong Kong National Security Law, its legal system and enforcement mechanisms, major provisions, the work of the disciplined forces in safeguarding national security, the effectiveness of the Hong Kong National Security Law, plus a wide range of reference materials. To bring more fun to visitors, the exhibition also covers relevant photos and short videos, various interactive elements, plus mini games for visitors to test their understanding of the Hong Kong National Security Law. The online exhibition especially uses The Lab gallery on the 5/F of the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA) as its virtual background, enabling visitors to navigate the exhibition as if they are physically at the gallery. The design and zoning of the exhibition also resonate well with the open view feature of the HKMoA gallery's three-sided glass facade, allowing visitors to enjoy the scenic views of Tsim Sha Tsui and Victoria Harbour while touring the exhibition.
