Beijing Liason Officer Sings for DAB Supper The pro-establishment Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong raised more than $68 million at their biennial fundraising dinner last Tuesday. Shimao Property chairman Hui Wing-mau paid $13.5 million for a work of calligraphy by Zhang Xiaoming , the director of the Beijing liaison office in Hong Kong. Additionally, donations in aid of a singing performance from Zhang raised $11 million . Pansy Ho Chiu-king, daughter of tycoon Stanley Ho, paid $5 million for a painting by another Beijing representative. Political parties in the SAR do not need to publish their sources of funding. Our take: Not talented enough to be an artist? Become a top Beijing official and people will still pay through the nose for your stuff.
