Zheng Xiaosong (Chinese: 郑晓松; September 1959 – 20 October 2018) was a Chinese politician and diplomat. He was Director of the Macau Liaison Office until he fell to his death in October 2018. He was Deputy Director of the International Liaison Department of the Communist Party of China, Vice Governor of Fujian Province, and secretary-general of the Fujian Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
