CE meets new commissioner

Chief Executive Carrie Lam met new Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Liu Guangyuan at Government House today.   Mrs Lam said at the meeting that while Hong Kong faced severe challenges in the past two years or so, it successfully overcame the difficulties with the staunch support and resolute actions of the central authorities.   She noted in particular, the National People's Congress passing the decisions on establishing and improving the legal system and enforcement mechanisms for the Hong Kong SAR to safeguard national security as well as on improving its electoral system, which have stabilised Hong Kong's overall situation and put "one country, two systems" back on the right track.   The Chief Executive thanked the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Hong Kong SAR for its continuous support for the Hong Kong SAR Government, especially on occasions when it was subject to unfair attacks by some foreign governments and politicians with ulterior motives, the office invariably and steadfastly made clarifications to refute misleading accusations.   Noting that some Hong Kong residents were stranded overseas due to the COVID-19 epidemic in the past year, Mrs Lam thanked the office and the country's missions in various places for the large volume of work they did to provide support to them.   She added that the Hong Kong SAR Government attaches importance to developing external affairs and that with the launch of the Early Vaccination for All campaign, it is hoped an immune barrier can be built in Hong Kong as soon as possible by significantly raising the vaccination rate, thereby allowing the early resumption of travel between people in the city and other places.   The Chief Executive also hoped that under Mr Liu's leadership, the office would continue to support Hong Kong to integrate into the country's overall development and join hands in promoting the opportunities of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the Belt & Road Initiative, thereby expanding the room for development of young people and injecting impetus into the city’s development.
