 Answered by Ms. Hannah
You can apply for it from the Chinese embassy. For a tourist applicant, in principle he need to provide his passport with blank pages and at least 6 months validity left before expiration; a truly and completely filled application form affixed with one passport-sized photo; evidence of his financial capability of covering the travelling expenses there, and when necessary, provide the air, train or ship tickets to the heading country/region after leaving. For the applicants who come to visit relatives, some are required to provide invitation letters from their Chinese relatives.

If the Moot Court is not an official one, you need to apply for a tourist visa. If it is, you can apply for a business visa. You can submit the application to the Chinese embassy in Sri Lanka or direcly send it to the HK Immigration Department by post.
