Background and Mission

Hong Kong Policy Research Institute (HKPRI) is a nonprofit and independent public policy think tank set up in 1995, upon China's resumption of its execution of sovereignty over Hong Kong in 1997 and with the objective to contribute, through public policy research, to the success of Hong Kong People Governing Hong Kong.

HKPRI was ranked for four consecutive years in 2015 - 2020 among the Top 100 think tanks in the regions of China, India, Japan and South Korea in the Global Go To Think Tank Index Report: The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) of the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania。

Our mission is to conduct quality research and provide effective recommendations by polling together local, mainland and international minds , and to create social impact by collaborating with stakeholders to form policy communities. By this we hope to contribute to the continued success of “One Country Two Systems” and of The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) exercising a high degree of autonomy.
