Laurie Pearcey is vice-president of external engagement & outreach at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is a fluent Putonghua speaker and is learning Cantonese at the Yale-China Chinese Language Centre.

Campaigns like ‘I Am Hong Konger’ politicise Cantonese from the other side of the world when the way forward lies in mutual understanding and greater integration with Guangdong, the ancestral home of the language.
