Li Pang Kwong, Director of Public Governance Programme of Lingnan University, said that those who worked as civil servants under British rule are not equipped with the proper knowledge to govern Hong Kong. He criticised Hong Kong civil servants for not knowing how to administer Hong Kong even though a significant number of them have worked in the Government under British rule.


Mr Li said that the civil servants under the British rule may not know the planning of the senior officers from Britain; it is just like the teachers in a school would not know the thinking of the principal. He emphasized that although they have worked in the Government under British colonial period; they did not comprehend the system well and learnt the ways to administer the Government.

Research is better than past experience

Moreover the lack of research on the actual circumstance of Hong Kong leads to the governance crisis in recent years. Li argued that research is of vital importance when administers do not familiar with the place that they are going to service. He continued that the British government actually did researched about Hong Kong before sending officers to Hong Kong. It is difficult to rule a place well if governors do not familiar with the social and cultural atmosphere of the place even they grow up there. They should not rule Hong Kong mainly based on their personal experience on civil service. He encouraged civil servants to do more research on the circumstance rather to rule the place by their own experience.

Ruling should not be money-oriented

Li showed his further disagreement on the mind set of Hong Kong Governors nowadays. He criticized that governing a place is not the same as doing business that they should not focus on the economic benefits development brings only, they should be aware of the benefits of the society as a whole.
