Charles Philip Haddon-Cave
- Charles Philip Haddon-Cave
Sir Charles Philip Haddon-Cave (better known as Philip Haddon-Cave; Chinese: 夏鼎基爵士 ), KBE, CMG (6 July 1925 – 28 September 1999) was Financial Secretary of Hong Kong from 1971 to 1981. During the period when he was in charge of the economic policy of the Hong Kong government, he adopted "positive non-interventionism" as its chief principle. He was subsequently appointed Chief Secretary, in which post he served from 1981 to 1985.
Haddon-Cave was born and educated in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia with his brother David and sister Pamela.
Despite his long years of service in Hong Kong, Haddon-Cave was famous for his loathing of Chinese food. At Chinese banquets, Haddon-Cave frequently insisted upon ordering steak, into which he would gleefully tuck while other guests struggled with their chopsticks.
After leaving Hong Kong, he spent his retirement quietly in England. Many of Haddon-Cave's family and relatives still live in Hong Kong.
He is grandfather to actress Jessie Cave.
