Friday Beyond Spotlights – Honorable John Lee: Heart to Heart Chat with the HKSAR Chief Executive

Friday Beyond Spotlights – Honorable John Lee: Heart to Heart Chat with the HKSAR Chief Executive

Friday Beyond Spotlights is an informative yet light-hearted talk show airing every Friday at 8:30pm on Hong Kong International Business Channel (#76).
The English language program features the most influential guests who share their insights into current affairs, business, innovation and culture, as well as their ingenuity, passion and grit which forge their Lion Rock spirit. The show is hosted by businessman and philanthropist Patrick Tsang On-yip, lawyer and lawmaker Nick Chan Hiu-fung, and seasoned business maverick Herman Hu Shao-ming.

Hosted by Patrick Tsang, episode 6 of Season 2 presents the Honorable John Lee Ka-chiu, the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. As Hong Kong had lifted most of the Covid-19 restrictions towards the end of 2022, Lee expects more international events and tourists would return to the city, and this will be a strong impetus for the economy to grow because tourism will come back very quickly. He says the government also plans to invite some iconic leaders to come to Hong Kong because their presence here will be a testament to Hong Kong’s strength and opportunities.

Lee is optimistic that Hong Kong will join the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), as the city already has a very important trading relationship with RCEP countries. “But the reason we want to join RCEP is more on how we integrate with different places in the world. Hong Kong is the only city in the world where the China advantage and the global advantage converge in one place, so we want to contribute and we will benefit as well.”

In his first policy address delivered last October, Lee outlined several key measures to attract investment and talent and earmarked billions of dollars to attract enterprises to set up operations in Hong Kong. Lee says the government can roll out additional measures if there are things that it can do even better. At the same time, he will be developing, nurturing, creating the good environment and learning opportunities and also development opportunities for people in Hong Kong.

In the program, Lee shares with audiences his personal experience in qigong, which has a special meaning in shaping him into who he is today. He started practicing qigong some 25 years ago to heal his severe backpain but with little success. He persevered and eventually found the school of motion-led qigong that worked for him. He thanks his wife not only for practising qigong with him, but also because she has been so supportive and considerate for all these years.
