Chief Secretary for Administration, John K C Lee

Welcome to the homepage of the Chief Secretary for Administration’s Office.

As the Chief Secretary for Administration of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), I will render full support to the Chief Executive in the administration of the HKSAR in accordance with the Basic Law to ensure the comprehensive and accurate implementation of the “One Country, Two Systems” principle.

Hong Kong has returned to order from chaos since the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the HKSAR came into effect. The implementation of the “patriots administering Hong Kong” principle and the improvement of our electoral system have ended the period of disorder and destruction in Hong Kong and enabled it to start a new chapter of constructive and effective governance. The Government will enhance efficacy in administration, staying committed to implementing measures that are conducive to the economy and people’s livelihood.

Our various government departments are professional, impartial, and dedicated to serving the community. In the World Competitiveness Yearbook 2021 released in June 2021, the HKSAR Government is ranked first in the world in terms of “Government Efficiency”. I will ensure that government efficiency is maintained at the highest level through the active coordination of inter-bureau and inter-departmental efforts.

Furthermore, I will strive to promote the relationship and communication between the executive and the legislature to facilitate the monitoring of the Government by the Legislative Council, and to apply the concept of “patriots administering Hong Kong”, with a view to enabling the formulation and implementation of effective laws and policies.

I will also support and assist the Chief Executive in the fight against the epidemic and in promoting economic development, so that Hong Kong can continue to capitalise on its advantages as an international city, actively integrate into the overall development of the country and seize the opportunities presented by the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to ensure the steadfast and successful implementation of “One Country, Two Systems” and the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong.

You are welcome to contact us through email or other means and let us know your views. Thank you.
