It is of utmost importance for civil servants to understand accurately the constitutional order established under the country’s Constitution and the Basic Law.   He pointed out that with the country’s development moving ahead in the new era and the implementation of “one country, two systems” turning a new chapter, civil servants must enhance their knowledge and have an accurate understanding of the core essence of “one country, two systems”.   This is to support the Hong Kong SAR Government in fully implementing the principle of “patriots administering Hong Kong” and ensuring the steadfast and successful implementation of “one country, two systems”, Mr Nip added.   The third seminar of the series will be held in September, covering the theme of safeguarding national security and National Security Law.
