Secretary for Health Prof Lo Chung-mau today visited Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital to get an update on the service of public hospitals.        He toured the hospital’s specialist outpatient clinic, medical ward, accident and emergency department and hyperbaric oxygen therapy centre, followed by a meeting with its management and frontline healthcare staff to learn about the service demands and manpower deployment.        Prof Lo said: "Having gone through the anti-epidemic work in the past three years, Hong Kong is on the road to full normalcy. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all healthcare staff for their efforts in performing duties and working tirelessly amidst immense work pressure to safeguard the city's healthcare system.”            Noting that Hong Kong will see a sharp rise in the number of travellers with the full resumption of normal travel with the Mainland, Prof Lo said the Government will closely monitor the development of the CO

CE promotes HK to Japan

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today addressed more than 800 Japanese entrepreneurs and business executives during a webinar on Hong Kong as a pro-business gateway to China.   During the session, Mrs Lam emphasised that “one country, two systems” is not only the bedrock of Hong Kong’s stability and continued success, but also regarded by the central authorities as an institutional strength of the nation.   She said the two important decisions made by the National People’s Congress in the past year, namely the enactment and implementation of the National Security Law and the improvement to the electoral system of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, have put the implementation of “one country, two systems" in the Hong Kong SAR back on the right track, enabling the city to flourish while leveraging such unique strengths.   Through a short video recapping her visits to Japan and meetings with Japanese officials and representatives of various sectors since taking office, Mrs Lam highlighted the close ties between Hong Kong and Japan.   She said this was also reflected in Hong Kong hosting nearly 1,400 Japanese companies, the largest group of foreign companies that have set up offices in Hong Kong, with about half of them using the city as their regional headquarters or regional offices.   Mrs Lam pointed out that Hong Kong’s traditional strengths, including the rule of law, an independent judiciary, a free flow of capital and information and a deep talent pool, are as strong as ever, and that the city will continue to serve as a gateway for businesses and investment between the Mainland and Japan.   The Chief Executive also noted that in the 14th Five-Year Plan for National Economic & Social Development, Hong Kong’s competitive strengths as international financial, transportation and trade centres, as well as a centre for international legal and dispute resolution services in the Asia-Pacific region, continue to be recognised for advancement.   Meanwhile, for the first time the city’s aspiration and ability to develop an international innovation and technology (I&T) hub, an international aviation hub, an East-meets-West centre for international cultural exchange and an intellectual property trading hub have been given recognition, she added.   Mrs Lam highlighted that the huge market and growth potential of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area presents unlimited opportunities not only to Hong Kong but also to the world.   She expects exciting developments in the bay area in the coming years and encouraged Japanese enterprises to partner with Hong Kong to seize those opportunities.   The Chief Executive was joined at the webinar by Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau, Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Christopher Hui, Secretary for Innovation & Technology Alfred Sit and Commissioner for the Development of the GBA Tommy Yuen.   Mrs Lam and the three officials addressed wide-ranging questions from participants during the one-and-a-half-hour session, covering travel restrictions due to COVID-19, Hong Kong’s status as an international financial centre, I&T development and the decarbonisation policy.

Legal officer changes proposed

The Government has proposed to amend the law to allow legal officers of the Department of Justice to be appointed as a senior counsel.   At a media session after attending a Legislative Council meeting today, Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng explained the rationale behind the Government's proposal.   She said: “Why is it that my colleagues in the Department of Justice - who by their qualifications are solicitors but are actually arguing very well and very efficiently with great eloquence and efficacy in the Court of Final Appeal - are not being recognised when they are actually even better than their counterparts? That has always been something that sometimes troubles me.   “And for that reason, I have always been thinking about how we are going to overcome that problem.   “Now, what really triggers my determination to take this further forward is when one of our Deputy Directors of Public Prosecutions, Vinci Lam, took silk on May 29.   “That really showed that the form
