After the flag raising ceremony, the SAR government held a National Day reception in the hall of the Convention and Exhibition Center.
In the past nine months, the central government has been paying close attention to the development of the epidemic situation in Hong Kong. It has actively responded to the request of the SAR government. The central government has supported Hong Kong in its fight against the epidemic. Since the reunification, the central government has given full support to Hong Kong in coping with various difficulties and challenges. In addition to building a haven for us when the SAR is faced with storms, the central government is planning and promoting the overall development of the country The exhibition also gave full play to Hong Kongs role and actively promoted exchanges and cooperation between Hong Kong and the mainland.
Hong Kong has experienced the social turbulence since the amendment storm last year and the implementation of the Hong Kong national security law this year. We should see clearly that to continue to promote the development of Hong Kongs various undertakings, to solve the challenges faced by our economy, and to meet the peoples demands for peoples livelihood and democracy, we must have a safe and stable social environment, adhere to the one country principle and uphold the principle of one country To protect national sovereignty and security, we should accurately grasp the relationship between one country and two systems, and act in accordance with the Constitution and the basic law.
Mrs Lam said that as long as we sincerely support the one country, two systems policy and the basic law, seize the opportunities under the new national development pattern, communicate rationally, seek common ground while reserving differences, we can certainly build a better Hong Kong family.
Finally, I wish the motherland prosperity, Hong Kongs harmony and stability, happy holidays and reunion of the people and the month!
