Message from the Director

Thank you for visiting the British Council in Hong Kong’s website. This site records some of the highlights of our work and, at the same time, demonstrates the commitment we have, as the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations, to continuing and strengthening a relationship of trust between Hong Kong and the UK.

We do this by creating connections between Hong Kong and the best of the UK’s great cultural assets, including  English, education, the arts, and – a newer priority – social entrepreneurship. We believe that these links help strengthen trust between Hong Kong and the UK, and allow for mutual insights and learning. We are proud to have been doing this in Hong Kong since 1948.

All our project activity is undertaken in close partnership with Hong Kong entities and individuals. The goal is to deliver innovative and creative programmes which are of mutual benefit. We are absolutely clear that what underpins our successes are the relationships of trust and mutual respect that have been built up over the decades in Hong Kong.

I encourage you to have a look around our website; you’ll find out more about our work and our programmes. 


Very best wishes,

Christopher Rawlings
Director, British Council, Hong Kong
