The Business and Professionals Federation of Hong Kong (Chinese: , abbreviated ?; BPF) is a non-partisan think tank in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China.

Mission

The mission BPF is:[1]

  • to help enhance the competitiveness, long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong;
  • to promote the continuous development of Hong Kong as a free, capitalist and international financial and business centre;
  • to conduct in-depth studies on issues of strategic importance to Hong Kong's economic, social and political development; and
  • to promote the importance of strong economic cooperation between Hong Kong and the Mainland.

History

The BPF was founded in 1990 as a successor to the "Group of 89 members" of the Basic Law Consultative and Drafting Committees,[1] a group of conservative business and professional leaders which opposed to faster pace of democraticsation.

Led by the pro-Beijing tycoon Vincent Lo, the Federation was against the then Governor Chris Patten's proposal of constitutional reforms for the Legislative Council which Beijing strongly opposed.[2]
