Public Administration in Hong Kong

Excerpt

This study of the administrative system in Hong Kong is a contribution towards a further study of the requirements of efficient public administration in the countries of Eastern Asia which has been projected in the international research programme of the Institute of Pacific Relations, and in which Chatham House is collaborating.

A part of the study was prepared in Hong Kong, and I would desire to acknowledge the help and encouragement given me there by the Governor, Sir Alexander Grantham, the Colonial Secretary, Mr D. M. Macdougall, and the staff of the Secretariat, and by Mr D.J. Sloss, Vice-Chancellor of the University, through whose kindness I had access to the Library of the University. As, however, a large part of the official records of Hong Kong was destroyed or dispersed during the Japanese occupation much of the work had to be done in London, mainly in the Public Record Office, and in the Colonial Office, where I received much help from the Librarian and other officers of the Department. Sir Mark Young, late Governor of Hong Kong, very kindly read the manuscript and gave me valuable assistance on some important points. My thanks are due to Mrs Katherine Griffiths and other members of the Research Department of Chatham House for help always readily given, and to others in Hong Kong and in England who have helped me in various ways in the preparation of the work.
