Huang Huahua (born October 1946 in Xingning, Guangdong) is a retired Chinese politician, and the Governor of Guangdong between 2003 and 2011. Of Hakka heritage, he was once the mayor of Meizhou.


Huang was born in Xingning County, Guangdong. Huang graduated in mathematics from Sun Yat-sen University.

From 1970 to 1978, Huang worked at a machinery factory of the Guangdong Coal Mine, joined the Communist Party in 1971 and served as deputy secretary of the workshop Party Branch. He was later promoted to secretary of the Communist Youth League of China (CYLC) Shaoguan Municipal Committee.

Huang was deputy secretary of the CYLC provincial committee from 1982 to 1985 and then secretary of CYLC provincial committee from 1985–1987.

Prior to becoming mayor of Meixian, Huang served as deputy secretary of the CPC Meixian Prefectural Committee.

He was Mayor of Meizhou (1988–1992) and subsequently the CPC party chief in Guangzhou. In January 2003, Huang was made Governor of Guangdong.

The stepping down of Huang as governor in 2011 marked the end of the dominance of the provincial government by the "Hakka clique" (客家帮). In December 2011, Huang was made a deputy chair of the National People's Congress Overseas Chinese Affairs Committee. [1]

Huang was an alternate member of the 15th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, and a full member of the 16th and 17th Central Committees.
