European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao
The European Union and its institutions are keen to work together with the media and provide them with as much information as possible. The Office of the European Union to Hong Kong and Macao works closely with local media organisations and international media organisations which have offices in the two Special Administrative Regions.
Interviews and Backgrounders
The Political, Press and Information Section is the first port of call for journalists reporting on the EU and EU's relations with Hong Kong and Macao.
The Head of Office of the European Union to Hong Kong and Macao is happy to accept interviews on EU-Hong Kong and EU-Macao relations, as well as other specific topics.
Journalists may contact our Information and Communication Officer to arrange interviews with EU officials and/or to obtain background information about a specific subject of interest.
Press Releases and Speeches
The EU Newsroom is the official news website of the institutions of the EU. It provides online access to the latest official press material released by all EU institutions, as well as practical information for journalists. The EU Newsroom app is also available for mobile phones. The app is free to download in the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Press releases, statements and key speeches issued by the EU Delegation to Hong Kong and Macao are posted on the All News page of the EU Delegation's website and disseminated electronically via email. Journalists may be added to the email distribution list upon request.
Journalist’s Visit to the EU
Journalists planning to go on a one-off assignment to any of the EU institutions can obtain from the Political, Press and Information Section an information pack containing useful information about the EU and a practical guide for visiting journalists.
The EU Delegation also provides opportunities for journalists from Hong Kong and Macao to participate in a group media visit programme to EU institutions. Its aim is to provide first-hand understanding of the EU's goals, policies and activities. Travel and subsistence costs are met by the EU Delegation. There is one place available per year. Interested journalists should contact the Political, Press and Information Section for further details.
