It is managed under the Government Logistics Department (GLD). The Director of the GLD reports to the Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury (and then to the Financial Secretary).

Old records are kept by libraries around the world and the government of Hong Kong. Online records of the Gazette date back to 2000.

The Hong Kong Gazette was a newspaper published by the Friends of China in 1842, but ceased operations in 1859. The paper was at one point the official mouthpiece of the Government.[1]
