Overall, more than 76% of the respondents supported enhancing people’s understanding of the Chinese Communist Party, and 73% considered the government should assist people to understand national affairs. In addition, over 70% of the respondents agreed with (a) increasing people’s contact and understanding of the PLA; (b) organizing more activities to increase public awareness of national defense and diplomacy; and (c) encouraging more young people to participate in military training.

Analysis and recommendations:

1. Raise awareness of major national events

  • The SAR government should promote goals, mission and direction of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China by using infographs

  • The SAR government to arrange official meetings and assist non-governmental organizations in organizing promotion activities

  • The secretaries of the SAR government, by reference to the method of promoting the policy address, should be responsible for corresponding areas of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and participated in official meetings and non-governmental promotion activities

2. Strengthen people’s understanding of the development of the Communist Party of China

  • To establish the "Chinese Communist Party History Museum"

  • As July 1st is the day of Hong Kong’s handover and also the anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, the SAR government should celebrate these two important events at the same time

  • Encourage and sponsor local and Mainland TV media to co-organise different cultural and entertainment programmes, so as to create more common cultures and topics

3. Strengthen the understanding of national security and national defense

  • Assist community groups to liaise with the PLA in Hong Kong for co-organizing various training activities

  • Allocate additional resources to allow more youth to have the opportunity to train in disciplined teams

  • The Education Bureau and the Home and Youth Affairs Bureau should promote the training and learning of Chinese marching
