Its brief is to monitor the implementation of the deal which lays down how the colony will be run after Britain hands it back to China in June 1997.

‘There are some key responsibilities that the UK has to Hong Kong beyond

June 1997,’ said LSA MD Laura Sandys. In fact the Basic Law and Joint

Declaration between Britain and China covers the period to June 2047.



The first issue to be tackled by LSA is the fate of Hong Kong’s 4,000-

strong ‘ethnic minority’ who are not eligible for either Chinese or

British citizenship.



* In a separate development, LSA has been appointed by existing client

BP Oil Europe to develop a pan-European PR strategy for its joint

venture with Mobil.
