The best is yet to come for Hong Kong
The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, said at the luncheon of the 18th Hong Kong Forum today (December 6) that the Government will be more proactive and play the role of a "facilitator" and "promoter" in the development of Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong Forum, co-organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and the Federation of Hong Kong Business Associations Worldwide (the Federation), attracted more than 350 business leaders from 29 countries and regions this year.
Mrs Lam said that Hong Kong has a strong base, including the unique advantage of "One Country, Two Systems" and being one of the leaders in international rankings in a number of areas. Noting that Hong Kong was doing very well economically in the first three quarters of this year with an increase in the number of Mainland and overseas companies in Hong Kong and a favourable external environment, she said, however, the city will not rest on its laurels. The Government she leads will be proactive and, through measures including boosting connectivity, strengthening traditional industries, developing new industries, improving the business environment and enhancing the standard of living, promote the economic development of Hong Kong and make it a more livable city.
Thanking the Federation for its contribution to Hong Kong's economic development over the years, Mrs Lam said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will continue to listen to the views of various sectors and take concrete actions for Hong Kong, for which the best is yet to come.
