According to Hong Kongs dot news and east net, the US government has repeatedly intervened in Hong Kong affairs, and recently announced sanctions against 11 central and SAR government officials. Zhang Jianzong said in his blog today (9) that the SAR government is not afraid of the threat of so-called sanctions and will fully support the central government to take counter-measures. Hong Kong people need not worry too much about the US governments abolition of Hong Kongs special treatment status. Because Hong Kong has a deep foundation and unique advantages, coupled with the sustained economic development of the mainland, it is the foundation of Hong Kongs long-term prosperity and stability. The so-called sanctions by Western politicians cannot stop Hong Kongs long-term prosperity. Hong Kongs unique advantages are not bestowed by western countries.

Zhang Jianzong said that the SAR Government firmly opposes and severely condemns the so-called sanctions imposed by the US Treasury Department on a number of key officials of the Central Peoples government and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Hong Kongs affairs are purely Chinas internal affairs and no foreign interference is allowed. The United States governments blatant and high-profile so-called sanctions is outrageous and unreasonable. It violates international law and basic norms of international relations and deliberately discloses the personal data of government officials. It also seriously violates privacy and endangers personal safety.

Zhang Jianzong also said that one country, two systems is the best guarantee for the long-term prosperity and stability of the Hong Kong SAR. Hong Kongs initial public funding (IPOs) reached US $40 billion last year, again ranking first in the world. In terms of total initial public offerings, Hong Kong ranked first in the world seven times in the past 11 years. By the end of July this year, Hong Kongs IPO had raised a total of HK $132.1 billion. This year, the average daily turnover of the Hong Kong stock market reached HK $124.8 billion, an increase of more than 40% over the average daily turnover of the whole year last year. This fully demonstrates the recognition and confidence of international market participants in Hong Kongs financial system.

He believes that the difficulties facing Hong Kong are temporary. As long as the epidemic situation is controlled and the economy and society gradually return to normal, Hong Kongs future will be full of opportunities.
