Meet our new Director Hong Kong Susannah (Susie) Morley.

Introducing our new Director Hong Kong 

The British Council in Hong Kong is pleased to welcome our new Director Susannah Morley. Susie has previously been our Director Partnerships North-East Asia, leading and supporting partnership pursuits, planning and coordination with corporates, foundations and philanthropic institutions for Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.    


Message from the Director 

Welcome to the British Council in Hong Kong. We’ve been working with the people of Hong Kong for more than 70 years and are proud to have played a part in the territory’s story by providing access to quality English language teaching, education and the arts, helping generations of young people to access the skills, confidence and connections they need to realise their potential. 

The work of the British Council in Hong Kong, and in the other 100 countries and territories where we work, is the development of cultural relations. This is about making people-to-people connections, focused on building understanding, trust, collaboration and partnership between the UK and the cultures and societies of the world.  

Covid-19 has had a profound impact on the way we work in Hong Kong; we have created new platforms through which our English language teaching and assessments, arts and education programmes can be accessed. But making people-to-people connections remains at the heart of what we do, even as the world is ever more closely connected through virtual means.   

As Hong Kong and the rest of the world recovers from the impact of the global pandemic, we remain committed to strengthening the ties between Hong Kong and the UK by making connections for academics, scientists, artists and teachers and providing opportunities for young people, and to continue to play our part in contributing to the prosperity of this great city. 

Please explore our website where you’ll find out more about our work, our programmes and what we can offer you. 


Very best wishes,

Susannah Morley
Director, British Council, Hong Kong
