The last governor of Hong Kong, Lord Patten of Barnes has joined Hong Kong Watch as a patron. Press release as below.
Lord Patten of Barnes has joined Hong Kong Watch as a patron.
Lord Patten of Barnes served as the 28th and last Governor of Hong Kong from 1992 to 1997 and Chairman of the Conservative Party from 1990 to 1992. He was European Commissioner for External Relations from 2000-2004, made a life peer in 2005 and has been Chancellor of the University of Oxford since 2003.
Hong Kong Watch is an international organisation with a global presence. Lord Chris Patten has been working closely with Hong Kong Watch since it was founded in Dec 2017.
彭定康表示：「香港監察贊助人這身份使我倍感榮幸。這組織雖小，影響力卻舉足輕重。此組織緣起於國際社會對香港命運的擔憂：遠在北京的中國共產政權，正準備將東方之珠殺雞取卵。」Patten said: “I am privileged to be a patron of Hong Kong Watch. Not a huge organisation, but it is an organisation which is terribly important and has had a very big impact. It was set up because of worries, right around the world, about how the Chinese Communist regime in Beijing is trying to squeeze the life out of a great Asian city.“
He continued: ”Hong Kong Watch has ensured that the cause of freedom has more and more adherents around the world. It does not just collect followers in Britain, but right around the world.”
Benedict Rogers, the Chair of Trustees at Hong Kong Watch said: “We are absolutely delighted that Lord Patten of Barnes has agreed to join Hong Kong Watch as a Patron. As the Last Governor of Hong Kong, he is much loved by Hong Kongers and deeply respected around the world for his defence of Hong Kong’s freedoms, the rule of law and autonomy, and his efforts to urge Britain and the international community to live up to the promises made to Hong Kong. With his extremely distinguished political career he brings a wealth of experience and wisdom. Having worked so closely together over the past three years it is a great privilege that he has accepted a formal role with Hong Kong Watch, and we look forward to continuing to work together for the people of Hong Kong.”
