Welcome to the website of the Information Services Department. We are the government's PR and advertising agency, publisher and news organisation, media adviser and research unit. We are also responsible for government design and display services, as well as film and photography.
We disseminate news and information through a wide variety of channels, including print and the electronic media, the Internet and social media, as well as press conferences and briefings. All major speeches, press releases, photos and video clips are issued to the media, and the public, via the department's website, which also maintains a media archive. In addition, major government press conferences and significant events are broadcast live on the department's website, with a video archive uploaded onto the website the same day as the broadcast.
Our mission is to enhance public understanding of government policies, decisions and activities. Working closely with the government's offices outside Hong Kong, we support senior officials' visit to promote Hong Kong in Mainland China and around the world. We also support the government's communications work of telling China stories well and telling Hong Kong stories well.
I hope you enjoy visiting our website, and I welcome your comments and suggestions.
