Hong Kong on the right path as John Lee vows support for businesses and youth

Chief executive John Lee Ka-chiu said Hong Kong would strive for the economy and development and to enhance its competitiveness as he concluded his trip to the Boao Forum for Asia in Haikou City, Hainan, on Friday afternoon.
Lee met the press at the airport and said the trip to Hainan reaffirmed his belief that the SAR is now on the right path and heading in the right direction. The city must also ensure a safe and stable environment for development so that it can address and cooperate with the national strategic planning and reinforce its footing as an international city at the same time.

The city leader also referred to remarks by China’s new premier Li Qiang and said he understood the need to increase certainties in the face of global uncertainties.

Lee added he met with different national and overseas leaders via this trip as well, including the secretary of the Hainan province, the chairperson of the forum Ban Ki-moon, and the chiefs of the International Monetary Fund and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.

He would also seize this opportunity to support enterprises and teenagers to branch out by helping Hong Kong participate in partnership deals with global free trade regions.

When asked about mainland tours disturbing the local neighborhoods, Lee said his cabinet cares very much about the management work of tours.

He added the Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau and the Travel Industry Authority had introduced new measures, such as launching an appointment system and limiting the dine-in hours, to minimize the inconvenience brought to residents and ensure tourists can genuinely enjoy their stay.

On another note, Lee dismissed accusations that the district community care team scheme was one of the preparations for the pro-establishment side to win in upcoming elections.

The accusations were not supported by any evidence or fact, and he stressed the core value of the scheme was to serve the community, Lee said.

Lee also said preparations for the reform of the District Council are ongoing, and the government will make announcements if there are any updates.
