Civil Aid Service holds parade

The Civil Aid Service (CAS) held the Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and CAS 70th Anniversary Parade today at the Police College.   Chief Secretary Chan Kwok-ki officiated at the ceremony and acted as the reviewing officer for the parade.   To demonstrate national identity and patriotic sentiment for the motherland, the CAS has fully adopted from today, the Chinese-style foot drill that requires exacting standards, and demonstrated the drill's protocols for the first time in the parade.   As an auxiliary force under the Security Bureau, the CAS has been honouring the pledge of "provide emergency relief, serve the community" and has been rendering immediate assistance during emergencies to protect Hong Kong citizens.   During the COVID-19 epidemic, the CAS has remained steadfast on the front line of the anti-epidemic operations by rapidly assisting in setting up a number of community isolation faci

Legal collaboration MOU signed

The Government today signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT).   The MOU was signed by Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng and UNIDROIT President Prof Maria Chiara Malaguti at a virtual signing ceremony.   It focuses on the administrative arrangements for collaboration relating to private international law and international commercial law.   This is the second MOU concluded between the Department of Justice and UNIDROIT, following the signing of the first one in May 2021, which put in place the arrangements for seconding Hong Kong legal professionals to the UNIDROIT Secretariat.   Ms Cheng said in her opening remarks that the signing of the joint declaration of intent opened a new chapter in the close co-operation between the two parties, adding that it also laid the foundation for enhanced collaboration in the field of private international law.   She also announced that, under the MOU, the department and UNIDROIT will be jointly launching the inaugural Asia-Pacific Private International Law Summit in the city this November, as one of the flagship events of Hong Kong Legal Week 2022.
