Year 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the implementation of the Basic Law. The Department of Justice (the "DoJ") hosted a Legal Conference on Basic Law ‒ Stability to Prosperity on 27 May 2022 (Friday) and announced the publication of its debut Basic Law sourcebook "Basic Law: Selected Drafting Materials and Significant Cases" at the Legal Conference.

The Legal Conference aims to highlight that the Constitution of the People's Republic of China (the "Constitution") is the genesis of the Basic Law, and "one country" is the foundation of "two systems". The HKSAR can only capitalize on its unique position under "two systems", utilize strengths, and contribute to our country if an accurate understanding of the relationship between the Constitution and the Basic Law is cultivated and a proper sense of national identity is nurtured.
