Wong Kwok-hing BBS MH (Chinese: 王國興, Vietnamese : Vương Quốc Hưng ; born 29 March 1949, Haiphong, North Vietnam) is a Hong Kong trade unionist and a former member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong, representing the New Territories West constituency from 2008 to 2012, and representing the Hong Kong Island from 2012 to 2016.

Biography[edit]

Wong is a member of Hong Kong Federation of Trade Unions[1] and was one of the 52 founding members of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, which is the largest party and trade unions of the Pro-Beijing camp. He was previously a member of Eastern District Council for the Provident constituency.

Wong strongly opposed the filibuster, which was mostly led by four LegCo members of People Power and League of Social Democrats then. He wrote big words on the paper in the chamber to protest against them.
